Small changes. Big differences.

What is Power of One®? 

Launched in 2018, the Power of One® campaign empowers retailers and consumers to take small steps to change the world, no matter how large or small. From checking on staff wellbeing, to making sustainable changes at our own show, and motivating others to become more conscious, we’re changing the future of retail. Here are our three pledges for 2023. 

Reuse, repair and recycle  
to reduce waste. 

Reduce reliance on  
single-use paper and plastic. 

Check on the wellbeing  
of team members. 

Power of One® at the show 

Small changes

We’ve made it easy for everyone to contribute to Power of One® by making small changes at the show. All visitor badge holders are now made of paper, so they can be recycled along with your badges in the bins provided at the hall entrances. We’ve also placed refillable water stations at each hall entrance so you can bring your own bottles and reduce the amount of plastic bought.  

Sustainability Trail

The Sustainability Trail puts the spotlight on suppliers going the extra mile to ensure a more sustainable and ethical future; from sourcing materials and manufacturing to the final product and packaging. It’s important to highlight these conscious suppliers, so we’ve ensured they can be easily identified using the sustainability filter on the exhibitor list and with the green leaf icon on their stand at the show.  



Products of Change are a global educational hub driving sustainable change across consumer product markets and beyond. We’re proud to have them as headline partners for the Power of One® campaign, and we’re offering all Autumn Fair attendees and exhibitors a 10% discount on Products of Change memberships allowing access to a full library of sustainable learning.  



We’ve partnered with the Retail Trust to provide our independent retailers with access to free and confidential health and wellbeing support. No matter how bad things get, the charity can offer you reassurance and clarity. Click below to read more about what the Retail Trust do and how you can get involved.



Autumn Fair is held at the NEC, which focuses on three main pillars: Energy, Waste and Food Miles. Priding themselves on being a zero to land fill venue with an average recycle rate of 80%. Any non-recyclable waste is used to generate electricity for local homes and businesses through Birmingham City Council’s Waste to Energy scheme.
