A new industry event, R+T Australia 2014 will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in August.

Australia’s first-ever exhibition specialising in external building systems such as roller shutters, doors, gates, windows and sun protection systems, R+T Australia 2014 is a spin-off event of the R+T exhibition held in Stuttgart, Germany. R+T is regarded as the world’s leading trade fair for roller shutters, doors, gates, windows, glass and sun protection systems across industrial, commercial and residential applications.

To be held from August 21 to 23 in Melbourne, R+T Australia 2014 will display some of the world-leading innovations in roller shutters, doors, windows, awnings and blinds.

Exhibition Manager Thurain Aye explains that R+T is regarded as the world’s benchmark exhibition for doors, windows, awnings and blinds, especially in the commercial and industrial sectors. The inaugural edition of R+T Australia will also be specifically aimed at the market for roller shutters, doors, gates, windows, glass, and sun protection systems.

There has been great response from exhibitors, representing both Australian and international companies, who have signed up for the show. More than 70% of the exhibition space has been sold till date with two more months to go till the event. Aye expects R+T Australia 2014 to have a successful future based on the response to the initial show.
