Hyve, the organiser of Autumn Fair, the show for the home and gift retail industry, has announced changes to the scheduled event in 2020.
As a reflection on conversations between the organisers, exhibitors and visitors, Hyve have made the decision that Autumn Fair 2020 will not take place this year. Spring Fair will continue to take place on the 7th-11th February 2021 and Autumn Fair will return to the NEC in Birmingham on the 5th-8th September 2021.
Hyve and the team behind Autumn Fair are now working closely with their partners and clients to deliver a virtual forum this September with exclusive seminar content and practical advice designed to educate and inform participants. More information on the virtual forum will be available on their website in due course.
“We have been listening to both our exhibitors and visitors, and the feedback from the market has been incredibly supportive of Autumn Fair. We’re excited to have the opportunity to take a fresh approach and launch a virtual forum this September.” says Jessica Dawnay, Event Director of Spring & Autumn Fair. “We are also looking forward to when the industry can meet again in person and will focus all efforts and resources on helping the industry bounce back in 2021, both at Spring Fair in February 2021, and Autumn Fair taking place 5th-8th September 2021.”
Autumn Fair will continue to provide exclusive webinars, industry news and product updates to keep the home and gift retail community informed, connected and inspired on The Community hub.
