Lakeland will once again be taking a stand at next month’s Spring Fair, in an innovative approach to sourcing new products.
The kitchenware and homewares retailer will set up its Next Big Thing stand in Hall 2 J79, and is inviting any supplier that would like to showcase an idea to the company to email susan.walsh-Nec@lakeland.co.uk to make an appointment.
Lakeland says it is always looking for ground-breaking inventions and ideas to add to its extensive range.
“I’ve been buying at the Spring Fair for over 30 years now,” said director Martin Rayner. “These fairs are, I believe, the best place to meet new suppliers and discover exciting and original ideas.
“The Spring Fair and Lakeland want to encourage small businesses with big ideas to sell at the fair,” he went on. “The more new ideas we come up with, the more we will have buyers from all over the world beating a path to our door.”
The Spring Fair runs at Birmingham’s NEC from February 7 to 11.
