Thousands of retailers visited Autumn Fair, the UK’s wholesale marketplace for Home, Gift, Fashion and Sourcing, yesterday at the NEC Birmingham to source new products from hundreds of exhibitors as well as enjoy a host of insightful and educational talks and inspirational catwalk shows. The show floor was buzzing throughout the day, and feedback from exhibitors highlighted the volume of quality orders being placed while visitors were delighted to discover exciting new brands and products.
Taking place until Wednesday 7th September, Autumn Fair offers the ultimate platform for retailers to discover, network, re-connect with peers, be inspired, and source their next best sellers for the golden quarter and latest seasonal and Christmas designs. Making the journey towards new discoveries even easier, a host of new features including the New Product Showcase, Gift of the Year Winner's Showcase in association with the Giftware Association, the Sustainable Product Showcase, and the Power of One® stand, offered curated product inspiration and created a visual and interactive space for visitors to make their sustainability pledges. Visitors also learned more about Autumn Fair's three Power of One® pledges to make positive changes towards better sustainability and wellbeing, while watching the talented artist Saroj Patel painting a striking mural.
Retailers in attendance from across the UK and overseas including White Magic, Pamela Shiffer, SUCCUBUS, Denby, Rumbul, Brown Thomas, Arnotts, Geschenke Direkt GmbH, Gibbs & Dandy Ltd, The Snug Room, Thomas Morans, Shoe Heaven/Hand Footwear, Lorraine Fire, Kosmelita, Lark London, Landmark Group, Home Sweet Home (SW) Ltd, and many more, were excited to see the breadth of product offered across the 12 sectors.
Pamela Shiffer, Owner, Pamela Shiffer; "We always come to Autumn Fair and MODA, for us it's in the in-season hit we need. This year we've found some fantastic new brands, including FIKA and Candlehand. We already stocked and did really well with FYG (candles) and they told us their sustainable clothing sister-brand FIKA were here, so it was really exciting to see them here. They're very wearable and affordable for a sustainable brand. We also love Candlehand for some fun Christmas gifting bits. We love coming here and finding pieces like these as we can see how they immediately will sit with pieces we've already bought."
Steven Morgan, Director of Imperial Games Limited said; "It's my first-time visiting Autumn Fair, I have been surprised by the quality and range of the exhibitors along with the organisation of the event team. I will be back next year!"
