CHAMPIONING THE BEST NEW PRODUCTS AT AUTUMN FAIR
Buyers attending the NEC this week were enthralled by the diversity and variety of products spanning across 6 halls at Autumn Fair. The UK’s definitive ‘shop for shops’ attracted thousands of buyers with the best new products, collections and innovations taking centre stage across the home, gift and fashion destinations.
Daniel Mayhew, Event Director, Spring & Autumn Fair says, “Both the Gift Of The Year Showcase and New Product Showcase are displaying some of the best products in show and buyers have made a beeline for Hall 6 to discover the hottest designs for the season ahead. We’ve really enjoyed creating a dedicated space to champion our Autumn Fair newcomers and hope they’ve had a great show.”
New Product Showcase
This season’s New Product Showcase championed the new home, gift and fashion brands joining the Autumn Fair line-up for the first time. Buyers on the hunt for newness discovered a curated display of over 50 new exhibitors showcasing over 100 exciting new products as well as the latest products from established favourites and some exciting new designs from returning brands, all situated in the heart of the Gift sector in Hall 6.
Simon Mitchell from new brand Green Laurels says, “As a new business this is our first experience at a trade show and it’s going really well – we are delighted to be included in the New Product Showcase. The community amongst exhibitors is lovely and the atmosphere and quality of visitors is fantastic at Autumn Fair. We’ve made some really interesting connections and buyers seem very keen to discover new, made in England and particularly sustainable and ethically produced products like ours.”
