International Visitors

For a product selection that’s out of this world, a visit to Spring Fair is a journey worth making. 


A Uniquely British Experience

For 75 years, Spring Fair has been a platform for new brands, new trends and product inspiration you won’t find anywhere else. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find a supplier to suit your needs in the marketplace. 


Make Unexpected Discoveries 

Spring Fair is a launch pad for diversification bringing people and products together across a number of curated show sectors within Home, Gift and Fashion. The power in diversification is something that can only be explored at Spring Fair, finding something different, and standing out from the crowd. This is where it all begins, at the biggest and best retail trade event in the UK.
