Spring Fair wins Trade Show of the Century Award

Spring Fair has been presented with the prestigious Trade Show of the Century Award at The AEO (Association of Event Organisers) Centenary Party & Awards (10 December at The Vox in Birmingham).

Julie Driscoll, divisional managing director for retail, engineering and manufacturing, Hyve Group enthused: “I’m so delighted that Spring Fair has won the prestigious Trade Show of the Century Award at the AEO Centenary Party & Awards.

“Spring and Autumn Fair from Hyve Group plc is absolutely delighted to receive this industry recognition and I’d like to thank everyone who currently works on Spring Fair and everyone who has ever contributed to the show. This award goes to all employees and suppliers who have helped keep this brilliant exhibition delivering for its customers over the last 75 years.”

Since its launch in 1950, Spring Fair has prided itself as being the definitive ‘shop for shops’. It was the first show to take place in the NEC Birmingham which was officially opened by HM The Queen in February 1976.

The AEO Centenary Party & Awards included 100 images of events over the years and a pathe clip taking all guests back in time.

Spring Fair 2022 is due to take place from 6-9 February at The NEC Birmingham, designed around four key buying destinations – Home, Gift, Moda Fashion and Design & Source.
