Autumn Fair 2021 Highlights

It’s good to be back!

After 18 months of anticipation, the retail world came alive again at Autumn Fair 2021!

We welcomed 100s of brand-new exhibitors, 1000s of new products, and an incredible line up of speakers. Our keynote and SBS Founder Theo Paphitis took to the stage on Tuesday to share his views on the evolving shape of UK retail and show partner, The Retail Trust, closed with a passionate seminar on supporting colleagues in retail.

Watch our show highlights video to catch a sense of the buzz of the show. Together, let’s refuel the next season of retail at Autumn Fair 2021.

  • “I’m a bit in shock at the number of people I’ve spoken to today, the reaction’s been amazing.”
    Paul Moneypenny
  • “We are blown away by how busy and productive it’s been. Our first order was taken by 9.15am on day 1, we’d already covered the cost of our stand by 11am, over 30 orders done by 5pm, and over 100 serious leads to follow up on. We have never been to a show like it. We are booking Spring Fair and doubling the size of our stand.”
    Lewis Stevenson
    The Seed Card Company
  • “Sunday was our best ‘Sunday’ at a trade show ever, and we took more orders yesterday, than in any other day at previous Autumn Fairs. We have great new product, and there was definitely pent-up interest and demand from buyers, who were thrilled to actually see product and new collections.”
    Tom Hawes, Director,
    Tilnar Art
  • “We have been very busy, taking orders from the doors opening right through to the end of the day, opening new accounts and seeing existing and lapsed customers.”
    James Long
  • “We had a great opening day, I don’t think I have exhibited at a busier Autumn Fair for a very very long time. We are extremely happy.”
    Robert Philpott
    Bomb Cosmetics
  • “We have written a lot of new business, seeing serious buyers. The quality of buyer has been excellent, and we were still writing orders right up to the end of the show.”
    Jon Swallow, Sales Director
  • “It’s brilliant to be back, the merge with Moda is so good and convenient, it makes perfect sense to have everything in one place. For someone in fashion it makes the event that much better. I’ve found a company I would never have found before and will be going back to order.”
