As Autumn Fair wraps up for 2019, the countdown to Spring Fair has already begun, with the launch of the show's theme for 2020. Reflecting on the retail industry's constant evolution, Hello New! represents the freshness and innovation that's expected at the 2020 event, which runs from 2nd-6th February at the NEC, Birmingham.
"Consumers' needs and wants are evolving, and the retail industry is evolving with them," says Julie Driscoll, UK regional director at Spring and Autumn Fair. "At Spring Fair, we want to quench the thirst for newness that inspires the sector and ensures its continued success. Hello New! brings the innovation at the heart of Spring Fair to life."
A number of changes are planned, including a reshuffle of the show's floor to provide two distinct sourcing destinations, Gifts and Home & Living. This follows a successful reedit of Autumn Fair 2019, which created a renewed look and feel for the event.
"We're delighted with how successful the reedit of Autumn Fair has been," continues Julie. "We can't wait to implement the refreshed feel for Spring Fair 2020. However, the re-edit isn't the only exciting change for next year's show. We're keen to keep some of the really bold initiatives and features we will have under wraps for now but we'll be announcing these as we get closer and closer to February. What is guaranteed is that Spring Fair will be one immersive shopping experience for all the industry's home and gift needs, where visitors and exhibitors come together, say Hello New! and be inspired."
