The organiser of Autumn Fair, i2i Events Group, has announced that the event has been shortlisted for Best Trade Show in this year’s ‘Exhibition News (EN) Awards.
Open to any trade exhibition held in the UK during 2015, EN Awards entrants are assessed on their ability to meet show objectives, produce innovative content and marketing campaigns, record improvements in commercial performance, demonstrate visitor and exhibitor attendance growth and diversification, and the show’s longevity. Finalists and winners are selected by industry peers.
The portfolio director for Autumn Fair Naomi Barton said: “I’m very proud that Autumn Fair has been short-listed for this prestigious award. The show has grown tremendously over the past few years as buying patterns have changed and retailers move increasingly towards seasonal buying at key times.
“Autumn Fair is one of the most important transactional events in the retail trade and we’ve been pulling out all the stops to make it an inspirational experience for our visitors and exhibitors. It’s wonderful that our efforts have been recognised in this way.”
i2i Events Group exhibitions received a total of 15 nominations across several categories, recognising exhibitions and the teams and individuals working on them. The winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held on April 28 at Park Plaza in London.
The next edition of Autumn Fair will take place from September 4 -7 at the NEC in Birmingham.
