Spring Fair International 2009 will play host to nearly 4,000 exhibitors from 49 countries, Spring Fair International pulls a wide-ranging and impressive audience of 70,000 visitors across the five days, including top buying representatives from leading global retail and manufacturing companies.
Alison Jackson, Managing Director of EMAP Connect, organiser of Spring Fair International, comments: “Generating sales orders in excess of £2billion year on year, Spring Fair International is arguably the most powerful launch platform for new products in the UK. Exhibitors will be showcasing thousands of ground breaking product launches and the retail platform boasts the world’s biggest collection of British designed merchandise.”
Making its debut in 2009, The Jewellery Show boasts the largest jewellery-buying audience of any UK event. It provides the perfect opportunity for 700 British and international jewellery suppliers – that’s more exhibitors than any other UK event of its kind, to showcase a vast range of products, from fine and fashion jewellery to loose gems and precious metals. Discover the latest trends in jewellery related products, including packaging, tools and equipment, shopfitting and display.
The product trails will be highlighted across five key sectors so visitors can discover the latest trends from some of the industry’s freshest talent as well as checking out new exhibitors from emerging markets.
The Ethical Product trail recognises the growing demand for more eco-friendly and fair-trade products and this trail will enable visitors to find ethical sourcing opportunities around the Fair. The New Product trail highlights exhibitors who are launching new products exclusively at Spring Fair International 09 and Designed in Britain celebrates home grown British talent, boasting the biggest collection of British-designed product in the world. Licensed Product enables visitors to find the hottest licensed ranges, sourcing original artwork, surface design, and images whilst the Exporter trail enables visitors to stay ahead of the game.
