Autumn Fair features more than 1,400 exhibitors across 12 edited show sectors bringing exciting, new and diverse products to over 27,000 visitors at the NEC in Birmingham.
Whether you have a new or established brand, make your own products, licence a brand or in the wholesale trade, we have just the right spot for you to showcase your offering at the season’s number one trade show for gifts and home products.
Key attendees include Amazon, Asda, Homebase, John Lewis, Joy, Paperchase, Moonpig and Wowcher (just to name a few). If you’re looking to catch the attention of high-value independents, big-name multiple retailers and the most covetable online vendors, Autumn Fair is a great place to be.
THE destination for the gift buying industry, being part of the show allows you to connect with powerful, highly-transactional buyers in search of products for the festive period (and beyond).

Be in the right place to provide the perfect product at exactly the right time – for them and for you!
Took part in Spring Fair in February? This is a great opportunity to reconnect with your customers and find new ones too. After all, one third of Autumn Fair visitors don’t attend any other trade show! It gives your brand an all-year round presence in the market and another chance to collect orders just before the festive period.
