Our meet the experts program is growing

Over the past few years our Meet the Experts programme at Spring Fair and Autumn Fair has grown from strength-to-strength because of the incredible value these meetings create for our experts and of course, the retailers they support.

Excitingly, in February at Spring Fair 2018, the size of our Meet The Experts programme will be growing dramatically and we are keen for more experts than ever to join us. Could you be one of them?

What is a Meet the Experts session?

Very simply, it’s a short but impactful meeting between an expert and a retailer or business owner, covering a retail-based topic within the expert's area of knowledge, imparting guidance, help and advice.

The one-to-one format allows the retailer to get invaluable, targeted advice on their particular issue from an expert in the field.

Why become an expert?

  • Exposure - Exposure of you or your brand to thousands of international and UK retailers
  • Marketing - A listing of your ‘Meet-the-Experts’ session on our website, visited by thousands of potential clients
  • Hassle-free - Meetings organised and arranged by us - you just have to show up!
  • No presentation - No need to prepare a presentation in advance, just attend your sessions and give relevant advice
  • Free - No cost involved
