#SBS at Autumn Fair



After another successful collaboration at Autumn Fair 2019, we are excited to announce that #SBS Small Business Sunday and Autumn Fair are teaming up once again for the 2020 show.

The #SBS showcase will be dedicated to highlighting new and unique products from ambitious start-ups and small businesses to allow 12 #SBS winners a chance to compete for 1 of 12 free exhibition stands at Autumn Fair, taking place 6-9 September.


What is #SBS Small Business Sunday?

  • Theo Paphitis created the Small Business Sunday (#SBS on Twitter) concept in October 2010, inviting small businesses to tweet at him with a description of their venture to secure his endorsement.
  • Every Monday, six of these businesses are then invited to become part of the now 2,500 strong #SBS community, benefiting from boosted publicity and attendance at a yearly conference.

What is the #SBS Pavilion?

The #SBS Pavilion at Autumn Fair is a showcase dedicated to highlighting new and innovative products from inspiring start-ups and small businesses.

  • #SBS community members entered a competition to win one of the 12 spaces in the #SBS Pavilion at Autumn Fair.
  • The 12 winners were chosen from a shortlist of 36 companies by a panel of Autumn & Spring Fair experts.
  • You’ll be able to meet these 12 amazing businesses, and see their innovative products at the #SBS Pavilion this September.



Join us as Theo Paphitis turns interviewer, to find out how Zoe Olivia Elsdon founder of Z-O-E, one of our first #SBS Autumn Fair winners has grown her business to service larger orders, and lessons learned along the way.
