Gifts, Home & Volume at Spring Fair International (Halls 10, 11 and 12) will see further growth in 2013, with the launch of dedicated zones for Private Label and Outdoor Living & Leisure, plus a new e-commerce seminar theatre. This part of Spring Fair has seen significant growth over the past couple of years, with 50 more exhibitors joining the sector in 2012 compared to 2011, and 2,000 extra sq m of space filled.
Ensuring that Gift, Home & Volume continues to increase its value as an inspiring destination for buyers will be a new e-commerce seminar theatre in Hall 12 featuring excellent content from a market-leading line-up of speakers. This is the first time Spring Fair has produced a dedicated feature area - other than bars and cafes in Gift, Home & Volume halls - reflecting both the importance of this sector in terms of volume, budget and variety of products to the UK's street markets and European retail trade.
Located in Hall 12, the dedicated Private Label area marks another important development within Gift, Home & Volume for 2013. Sales of private label products are estimated to have grown 4.1 per cent year-on-year in Europe, with one out of every five items sold in supermarkets, pharmacies and other mass market outlets falling into this category.
For manufacturers and distributors in this sector, Spring Fair offers a golden opportunity to tap into a £65 billion European market that covers a wide range of non-food categories, including cosmetics, toiletries, health and beauty, household and kitchen, auto aftercare, garden housewares and DIY products.
Opening in Hall 10, Outdoor Living & Leisure will serve the significant number of Spring Fair visitors (7,924 in 2012) who expressed a primary or secondary interest in this product category. The show organisers, i2i Events Group, is working in partnership with the Garden Industry Manufacturers Association (GIMA) to develop the new zone, which will incorporate a dedicated GIMA member's village.
