SPRING FAIR WINS AEO TRADE SHOW OF THE CENTURY AWARD

Spring Fair, the UK's most diverse, vibrant, and exciting wholesale marketplace for home, gift, fashion, and sourcing, was presented with the prestigious Trade Show of the Century Award at The AEO (Association of Event Organisers) Centenary Party & Awards on the 10th December.

Julie Driscoll, Divisional Managing Director for Retail, Engineering and Manufacturing, Hyve Group plc said; “I’m so delighted that Spring Fair has won the prestigious Trade Show of the Century Award at the AEO Centenary Party & Awards. Spring & Autumn Fair from Hyve Group plc is absolutely delighted to receive this industry recognition and I'd like to thank everyone who currently works on Spring Fair and everyone who has ever contributed to the show. This award goes to all employees and suppliers who have helped keep this brilliant exhibition delivering for its customers over the last 75 years.”

Since its launch in 1950, Spring Fair has been the definitive ‘shop for shops’. It was the first show to take place in the NEC Birmingham which was officially opened by HM The Queen in February 1976, and continues to support the retail industry like no other.

The next show takes place from 6th – 9th February 2022 at NEC Birmingham welcoming tens of thousands of UK and international based retailers and buyers. Spring Fair showcases the newest products on the market and curates an unmissable event where inspiration, creativity and insights are always on tap. The show is now designed around four key buying destinations – Home, Gift, Moda Fashion and Design & Source, offering an experience that guides product discovery and buying like no other.

The Association of Event Organisers Ltd (AEO) is the trade body representing companies which conceive, create, develop or manage trade and consumer events. The AEO Centenary Party & Awards saw attendees flock to the Vox in Birmingham on the 10th December to celebrate and recognise the best in the industry. The celebrations were split in two, starting with a throwback in history to when AEO was formed coupled with 100 images of events over the years and a pathe clip taking all guests back in time.
