Spring Fair 2020 will see the first major re-edit of the UK’s largest source of gift and home decor in eight years.
The exhibition, which closed yesterday and is now in its 69th year, will have a renewed look and feel. Julie Driscoll, Spring and Autumn Fair’s new MD, says: “This is a transformational moment for Spring Fair, and we are so excited to unveil the 2020 re-edit. Following our recent acquisition by ITE Group plc, we’ve invested heavily in both Spring and Autumn Fair, and this is just one indication of how that investment will deliver for both exhibitors and visitors.
“The re-edit, which redrafts the NEC’s showfloor into two sourcing destinations – Gifts in the Piazza, and Home & Living in the Atrium – will make it much easier for buyers to source complementary products, and in turn generate more new customers for exhibitors. The introduction of new product categories and sector names will create fresh inspiration for both exhibitors and visitors."
The Atrium halls will host all Home & Living sectors, including a new Sourcing sector.
Spring and Autumn Fair recently joined ITE Group plc as part of its acquisition of Ascential Events, and this re-edit forms part of the investment and renewed focus ITE set to bring to the well-established brands.
