Retailers prepare for key buying cycles at leading gift and homeware show.

Taking place from 3rd-6th September, Autumn Fair is timed for the retail buyers to make orders for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Easter, and features 12 different show sectors, seminars, keynote speakers, and workshops.

Autumn Fair is renowned for bringing together a selection of suppliers and brands from across the retail sector, and is expected to provide a high-quality buying experience. The organisers of Autumn Fair expect to welcome many buyers who are looking to meet new suppliers, and see upcoming trends.

Autumn Fair’s standing in the retail industry enables it to attract a number of high-profile speakers to impart their insights and experience in retail and business.

Aside from the keynote speakers and exhibitions, the next edition of Autumn Fair will provide a programme of targeted material, aimed at inspiring visitors on future trends and retail ideas.

Louise Young, divisional director retail at Ascential, which organises Autumn Fair, commented: “New this year will be an appointment-planning service whereby buyers can browse through product categories on our website and arrange meetings directly with the relevant companies at the show.

“Our exhibitors will display on-trend merchandise across a variety of sectors, enabling retailers to source everything they need under one roof. Not only that, our speakers will deliver exclusive advice and insights that can really make a difference to the bottom line.”
