Bold new direction for Autumn Fair 2019

With a new layout and new theatres and areas debuting, the 2019 edition of Autumn Fair is set to create a more seamless shopping experience

Autumn Fair, the season’s most important marketplace for home and gift retail, is set to launch its new direction for 2019 and beyond this September at the Birmingham NEC.

With plenty of new and bellwether exhibitors showcasing exclusive products, and new theatres and areas debuting for 2019, Autumn Fair will offer unrivalled sourcing and deal-making opportunities for retail’s boldest buyers.

More than 22,000 visitors, and 1,300 exhibitors are expected to descend on the NEC for the show, representing the industry’s best opportunity for last minute stocking-up before the all-important Golden Quarter sales period and beyond for key buying points in 2020.

For 2019, Autumn Fair will occupy a new venue within the NEC, moving to the Atrium as part of a re-edited offering designed specifically to facilitate connections between suppliers and retailers, and make it as easy as possible for visitors to get to grips with the products that will drive profits. 

Across 11 carefully curated show sectors, visitors will be able to explore the latest products driving sales throughout the busy Christmas period and on into key selling periods for 2020. 

All gifting categories have been brought together into one spectacular Gift sector, in turn creating the UK’s largest gathering of gift inspiration under one roof. Likewise, the 2019 re-edit will bring together the show’s home and interiors sectors, creating an all-new sourcing and exhibiting destination for UK and international buyers and suppliers respectively.

The new show sectors are:

• Gift (Contemporary Edit)
• Gift (General)
• Beauty & Wellbeing
• Living
• Greetings & Stationery
• Accents & Décor
• Everyday
• Retail Solution
• Fashion
• The Summerhouse
• Play & Tech
• Sourcing


Autumn Fair runs from 1 - 4 September 2019 at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre. Register to attend for free HERE
