About

Spring Fair International -

Spring Fair International is an annual event, founded in 1976. It is the first fair that took place at NEC, Birmingham. Today it occupies the entire venue, plus LG Arena. In fact, Spring Fair has become the most important trade fair for giftware in Europe, with 60,000 visitors (mostly decision makers, representing leading chain and department stores, garden centres, independent and e-commerce retailers, etc.) from more than 120 countries, including France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Russia. Exhibitors on the other hand enjoy media coverage, free marketing opportunities and exhibition tips, and direct connection with target audiences, leading to on-site sales and immediate orders.

The event offers more than just exhibition stands. Visitors of previous editions discovered various events and features, including Product locators, Networking areas, Product demos & displays of innovative products, and attended seminars and trend presentations. During the last edition the fair’s educational content was presented in 3 venues: Trends & innovation theatre, E-commerce theatre and UKTI International business theatre (as the event is supported by UK Trade & Investment).

In 1991 the organiser, i2i Events Group, launched Autumn Fair International in order to meet the growing market demand. Autumn Fair is held every September at the same expo centre. It is now the largest event in the sector after Spring Fair.

The service we received from Fair Point was fantastic. They were quick to respond to our (many!) questions, and were very accommodating when we had to keep changing our plans and had some very last-minute drop-outs/adds to attendees. I would absolutely work with them again in the future!
