Daniel Mayhew, Event Director, Autumn Fair, says: “Off the back of two incredible Autumn and Spring Fairs we head towards this September’s Autumn Fair in a very positive and buoyant mood. Our fantastic exhibitors and so many of the industry’s leading bellwethers continue to support the show and many use it as the only platform to showcase their new collections. Each season they experience the invaluable benefits of committing to such a longstanding and trusted show which attracts so many purchase-ready buyers. With four months until we open our doors to Autumn Fair I’m delighted to report that most sectors are already over 75% booked with many of our must-see and much-loved brands returning to the show.”
Anup Dave of The Puppet Company and Wilberry Toys says: “Spring Fair 2022 event was the best we have had so far, so as you can imagine our expectations for Autumn Fair 2022 are much bigger. With several new lines being introduced it is the ideal place to showcase these, talk to our customers and share the exciting plans we have ahead of us. We are really looking forward to Autumn Fair 2022, it is an important show for us.”
