Spring fair called Salon of the Century
Spring fair received the Salon of the Century award at the AEO (Association of Event Organizers) Centenary Celebration and Awards on December 10 in Birmingham.
Julie Driscoll, General Manager of Retail, Engineering and Manufacturing, Hyve Group, said: “Spring & Autumn Fair of Hyve Group plc is absolutely delighted to receive this industry recognition and I would like to to thank everyone who is currently working on Spring Fair and everyone who has already contributed to the show. This award is presented to all employees and suppliers who have helped maintain this brilliant exposure in serving our customers for the past 75 years. “
Since its launch in 1950, Spring Fair has helped define retail buying. It was the first show to take place at the NEC Birmingham, which was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen in February 1976.
The next show is February 6-9, 2022, and is expected to welcome tens of thousands of UK and international retailers and buyers. The show is now designed around four key buying destinations – Home, Gift, Fashion Moda and Design & Source.
The OAS is the professional body representing companies that design, create, develop or manage professional and general public events. The AEO Centenary Party & Awards saw attendees flock to the Vox in Birmingham on December 10 to celebrate and recognize some of the best in the business.
