THE ROGUE STORY
In early 2016, frustrated with existing options to exhibit her popular kids homewares brand ‘Homely Creatures’, Melbourne based creative Emma Patterson decided to do something about it.
In august 2016 Emma became curator and event planner for the coolest boutique trade shows to hit Australia in a long time. Organically attracting almost 4K social media followers, Co-ordinating 50 happy exhibitors and welcoming 2100+ visitors, these disruptive new shows are now the talk of the industry.
The passionate leader of ‘Rogue Lifestyle’ Emma can’t wait to continue her mission to create experience-rich alternative trade events for a select group of kids and lifestyle exhibitors. Emma believes in providing a genuine and empathetic service, as she understands first hand what exhibitors want from a trade show.
"In our creative industry we all love the same things - beautiful objects, new design, great food, decent coffee, meaningful conversations, edgy venues and celebrating in style with a glass of bubbles. It just makes sense to bring the industry together in a pleasant setting amongst these things, to remind us why we got into this business in the first place."
