This year’s Spring Fair (4-7 February 2024, NEC, Birmingham), sees the launch of Pitch Live, which offers a Dragon’s Den style launchpad for exhibitors to present their best products.
With the six finalists now revealed, Pitch Live invites the successful companies to take to the Trend Talks stage in Hall 6 with their most prized and innovative products and pitch live to the judging panel and retail audience.
The excitement begins on Monday 5th February at 3pm, as Pitch Live Gift gets underway. Confirmed finalists for this session are: Willsow, creators of the first ever plantable children’s books; Ducky Zebra, which creates award-winning sustainable clothes for babies and children up to 6 years old. Then we have Go On, Make Me Ltd, which designs and sources sustainable new innovative dexterity toys and gifts.
On Tuesday 6th February MODA Pitch Live will follow the same format with three fabulous finalists. Vurchoo Ltd, maker of Studs of Hope, an evergreen collection of affordable ethical jewellery that simultaneously represent and support the countries they are inspired by. Next up is Nerik, Introducing the sustainable Transformative Garment & Scarf range. Last but not least is the Merry People footwear brand, which began in 2014 when founder Dani Pearce ended up with wet feet and ruined shoes after her rainy commutes in Melbourne, Australia.
Finalists will have the opportunity to enhance their brand recognition, grow their audience, gain invaluable feedback and possibly get a new listing! The winner will receive a 2m² space off their 2025 stand, two 1-hour consultancy sessions (press relations, mentoring & hands on strategic advice) with Sharon Good, CEO of Good Results PR.
Spring Fair has brought the industry together for over 70 years and this year buyers can once again see, touch and experience thousands of the latest products across four key destinations – Home, Gift, Moda, and Everyday – and 13 definitive sectors.
An efficient show layout designed around buyer’s needs will mean less time spent finding suppliers and products and more time experiencing them and everything else the show has to offer.
