The annual fair welcomed thousands of visitors to its 2016 edition last week.
Autumn Fair offers the ultimate cross-sector buying experience teamed with networking opportunities, educational masterclasses and business insights, confirming its status as the essential home and gift trade event in the autumn buying calendar.
Over 1,300 exhibitors were accompanied by a comprehensive programme of seminars, panel discussions and Q&A sessions, representing all areas of the retail industry. Highlights included a keynote delivery from Jo Malone MBE to a packed audience, who benefitted from the entrepreneur’s valuable retail advice and tips for success.
Other speakers across the four days included experts from Facebook, Twitter, One World Trading Company and The Great Gift Company, as well as the winner of the BBC’s Great Interior Design Challenge 2015, Martin Holland. One-to-one sessions also took place as part of a new Meet the Experts feature, offering tailored advice from experts on topics such as social media, accounting and logistics.
