Autumn Fair saw over 150,000 new products launched by around 1400 UK and international suppliers, ahead of the prime Christmas season.
After last year's event recorded more than 29,000 (pending audit) visitors, no visitor numbers have yet been released as yet for the 2015 edition. However, the event's organiser points to "an increase in the quality of attendees, with almost all of the top multiple retailers in the country sending buyers to the event". Thousands of independent retailers and interior designers also attended from all over the UK and 124 other countries worldwide.
Autumn Fair portfolio director Naomi Barton says: “The feedback on this year’s show has been extremely positive and we’re very happy with the result. The majority of exhibitors have done very good business at Autumn Fair and we expect as much as £1.2b of orders to be placed by retailers as a result of their attendance here. The inaugural edition of The Light Show in particular was a resounding success, everyone was delighted to see such a stunning display of product lighting up the aisles."
The next edition will take place from 4-7th September 2016 at the Birmingham NEC.
