Hyve Group, the organiser of the UK’s leading retail trade events for the Home, Gift and Fashion sector, has announced the launch of a new responsible sourcing show, Source Home & Gift, to be co-located with Spring Fair and Autumn Fair. Source Home & Gift creates a new vision for responsible sourcing, with a focus on every manufacturer offering sustainable, ethical, and inspirational product ranges.
Providing visitors with the opportunity to connect with Global manufacturers and co-create new products and ranges, Source Home & Gift will introduce ethical and sustainable manufacturers from around the world to the UK market. Bringing together the world’s most responsible manufacturers across a range of categories including homewares, textiles, gifts and toys as well as handcrafted artisan products. Home & Git will create an unparalleled platform that enables buying teams to source responsible.
To celebrate the launch, Autumn Fair hosted a launch party on the Inspiring Retail Stage on Monday 5th September from 5pm – 7pm. Suzanne Ellingham, Sourcing Director at Autumn Fair, opened the event, which was followed by live music and drinks.
Ellingham says; “The launch of Source Home & Gift indicates a step change in the way retailers and brands are now able to source products. Retailers and buying teams have been telling us that they are actively looking for responsible manufacturers, those that are not just producing sustainable products, but those that pay fair wages and are fundamentally operating in the right way. The challenge for them is finding those manufacturers, Source Home and Gift solves that problem, and by working with governments around the world who are supporting this new sourcing dynamic.”
