CeBit Australia
May 31 - June 2
Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour
Sydney, Australia

The Australian edition of the world's largest digital IT and telecommunications event, CeBIT takes place annually in Sydney, Australia. CeBIT Australia is hailed as the country's largest ICT exhibition (but is only around a tenth of the size of its parent event, CeBIT in Hannover). CeBIT Australia is a focal point of an additional series of events (including AusInnovate NBN, eHealth, eGovernment, Cloud Computing and WebForward) that will run concurrently to the exhibition. More than 600 exhibitors and 30,000 delegates are expected to attend CeBIT Australia in 2011.

Interior life style Tokyo
June, 1-3
Tokyo Big Sight 
Tokyo, Japan 

A design-oriented trade fair for the high-end Japanese interior market, last year's event attracted upwards of 25,000 visitors. Interior Life Style is a combination of two other Messe Frankfurt trade fairs - Ambiente and Heimtextil. Focused on Japanese, rather than international trends, the event showcases the latest designs for the kitchen and dining area as well as home accessories and textiles.

8th Pulse - London
June, 5-7
Earls Court
London, United Kingdom

Billed as the place "where smart retailers go to get ahead," Pulse London is often the first place to see the latest products before they hit Europe's shop. This year's event is divided into five sections: Home, Gift, Fashion and jewelry, Bath and body and Launchpad. The organizers claim that over 500 products in the areas of interior design, gifts and stationery will be launched at this event. The event is product- rather than trend-oriented and in that respect Pulse is similar to the Nuremberg toy fair.

Toys galore
June 16-19
Tokyo Big Sight,
Japan, Tokyo

The International Tokyo Toy Show 2011 is one the biggest events on the calendar for anyone involved in the industry, with this year's event spread over four days. All the biggest names in the children's entertainment industry will be on hand to show off their latest designs and inventions as they gear up for the all-important run-up to the Christmas season. Earlier this year both the Nuremberg Toy Fair (February 3-8) and the Toy Fair in London (January 25-27) also showcased this year's top toy trends.
