Autumn Fair will return to the NEC Birmingham from 5 – 8 September 2021, where it will be co-located with fashion trade exhibition, Moda. Following their Refuelling Retail manifesto, Autumn Fair will be designed to reinvigorate the industry, providing the essential networking and product inspiration that we have all missed during this time apart.

Autumn Fair promises to provide a compelling line-up of exhibitors. Already signed up are such names as TY UK, Big Metal, Joe Davies, The Art File, The English Soap Company, Kidicraft, Dcuk, Kikkerland, Ashleigh & Burwood, East of India, Paper Salad, Rush Design, D&J Glassware, Sifcon, Bomb Cosmetics, Coach House, Hill Interiors, Pacific Lifestyle, Ultimate Products, Rex International, Richard Lang & Son, Korbond Group, Price’s Patent Candles and many more.
New exhibitors on the line up include: Willsow, Chalk UK, Bachmann Europe, Peony & Pine, Emotional Rescue Scream Pretty, Brands Ltd, Emily Victoria Candles and Rainbow Design. Situated alongside the Jewellery & Watch and Fashion (JWF) sector of Autumn Fair, Moda’s co-location will provide even more crossover buying and selling opportunities, creating a definitive fashion destination within the exhibition at Birmingham’s NEC.
Julie Driscoll, Managing Director for Hyve’s UK Retail & Fashion portfolio commented, “We are delighted to finally be returning to the thing we do best; market-leading events facilitating trade, collaboration and creativity. We’re working hard to make our in-person shows safe and secure and we can’t wait to welcome our community back to the NEC Birmingham after such a long time apart.’’
Autumn Fair’s return has been welcomed by leading industry association BIRA; Commercial Director, Jeff Moody said, “Bira are delighted to be at Autumn Fair, as our independent retailers are so eager to see new product ranges and reconnect with suppliers and fellow retailers. It’s been such a long time since the industry has been able to meet together and Autumn Fair will be a much-awaited opportunity for the industry to reunite.”
It is with great anticipation that Hyve Group prepares for the return of Autumn Fair. Refuelling the retail industry is the show’s top priority moving forward, with community and collaboration at its heart.
