Autumn Fair is the season’s largest and most-attended home and gifting trade event, taking place at the NEC from 3-6 September, covering key buying sectors with over 1,300 new and well-established exhibitors from the UK and Internationally, and attracting over 26,000 visitors. Boosted by a dynamic and engaging programme of insightful talks on the latest trends and one-to-one sessions with leading industry figures, Autumn Fair 2017 is a must for buyers, retailers and exhibitors worldwide. The event is perfectly timed to give buyers flexibility and choice for those short orders ahead of Christmas and New Year, as well as to kick start buying for 2018 by viewing pre-launches for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and seasonal spring buying. Each year independent retailers and buyers from the major multiples come to the event from across the country to see the latest products and make the most of unique networking opportunities.
Spring Fair is the UK’s No.1 trade show for gift and home, welcoming more than 60,000 visitors through the doors of Birmingham NEC over five days.
