Autumn Fair is set to return this season with a stellar line-up of new brands and new engaging content through a full line-up of inspirational speakers and seminars, cementing the event as the season’s No.1 Gift & Home Trade Show.

Commenting on their decision to exhibit this year, Michael Faulkner, National Account Manager at Le Creuset said: ‘The timing of Autumn Fair works really well as Le Creuset launches its consumer campaigns for the second half of the year. In addition, the show will be used as a platform from which to launch a range of new gifting products perfect for Christmas, from £12 and upwards. Autumn Fair is also a great opportunity for us to reach out to the independent cookshop sector and meet face to face with our stockists as well as extending our reach to potential new business sectors.’
