Following the closure of premium Kidswear trade show ‘Bubble London’, Autumn Fair 2018 is all set to tap into the opportunity and provide businesses and brands to present their latest childrenswear products.
Notably, Autumn Fair serves as one of the season’s premiere wholesale gift and home trade event on the buying calendar. They provide a ground for new and existing suppliers, visitors and exhibitors to network and discover new interventions within the industry by enabling the showcase of new brands and products.
The trade show has announced the expansion of its Children’s Gifts, Toys & Gadgets showcase to include the childrenswear fashion category for the first time ever. With the extension of its well-established children’s showcase, the fair aims to offer an opportunity to businesses aligned with children’s fashion to unveil their latest products and meet buyers in a physical marketplace, as was facilitated at Bubble London.
“Bringing childrenswear exhibitors and buyers together will only help facilitate success, and drive innovation. Be it for children or for teenagers, gifting children’s clothing and accessories is a key area of sell-through for retailers,” said Louise Young, MD, Spring & Autumn Fair.
Besides providing compelling retail insight and endless inspiration, the fair is also introducing the concept of buying the product ‘here and now’ for the key selling period of the Golden Quarter – which are the three final months of the year. This leverage will be made available for fashion buyers attending the event.
Despite childrenswear suppliers and retailers having faced challenging trading conditions recently, the market is predicted to grow by 10.4 per cent by 2021. Businesses that are eager to react to changing consumer expectations by delivering products that are on-trend will succeed in growing their market share.
The fair boasts of 13 carefully curated sectors, all under one roof, perfectly timed for short orders and in sync with the key holiday selling period.
Autumn Fair will take place from 2-5 September 2018 at the NEC Birmingham. You can visit the event’s website https://www.autumnfair.com/ for further information.
