Autumn Fair returns with the spotlight on sustainability

Published on: 25th July 2022

Registration for the Autumn Fair event, which takes place from 4th-7th September, is now open for visitors.

Autumn Fair returns to the NEC Birmingham from 4th – 7th September, shining a spotlight on sustainability and focusing on brands which are committed to making positive changes via its Sustainability Trail which runs across all Home, Gift, Fashion, and Design & Source sectors.

The Kids, Toys and Play sector of the show will include companies such as Ty, One for Fun, University Games, Keel Toys, Spinning Poodle Games, Bachmann and Kidicraft.

Daniel Mayhew, Event director, Autumn Fair, commented: “It is more and more apparent that conscious decisions are the future of retail. How materials are sourced, manufacturing processes, waste and packaging are all key considerations for suppliers and retailers. The story behind products is a major consideration when sourcing new ranges/suppliers – and is becoming increasingly so for the end consumer too. Our emphasis on the popular Sustainability Trail ensures that brands which have made a commitment to reducing our global impact are highlighted and promoted. We hope that it will continue to encourage visitors to focus on sustainability and inspire more brands to prioritise sustainability in developing new products. Our Power of One campaign also encourages suppliers, retailers and consumers to take small steps to change the world, one decision at a time. We are all on this journey together. “
