Perhaps, you remember my post from November where I announced that I will be going to Autumn Fair 2016 show. I was super excited as it was my first time. I was several times in Birmingham NEC as an interior designer, it was pretty normal to me to attend this type of exhibitions. I have a mean time also wrote a guide for all exhibitions that happening in Manchester, London in Birmingham so don’t miss out my Interior trade shows guide.
When I arrived in Birmingham NEC, I was absolutely overwhelmed. There was so much to see! I tried to follow my perfectly planned day, but I failed miserably as it was impossible to see everything within 1 day only. I adored how autumn Fair was perfectly planned with all sectors and how easy actually was to find everything. I have printed my badge, and nearly peeing from the excitement I started wondering around. I am not going to lie, I took over 500 photos and it was nearly impossible to choose the perfect ones and I stopped counting at the 50s. I think I have already warned you before, that this post will have loads of photos so be prepared!
Apart from wandering around and looking for my favourite brands, I have attended few seminars. One seminar I was particularly looking to attend was Jen, from LovecChicLiving chatting about Pinterest. I knew Jen online but never had the chance to meet her personally. Jen gave us an excellent presentation and I really left inspired to kick off with my Pinterest journey. I hope I will be able to apply these soon.
Autumn Fair, apart from gathering best interior design brands, also has amazing Fashion & Beauty stands, but sadly I only had a glimpse of these and I am hoping I will be able to show you these next time ( bring on Spring Fair 😉 So, I have focused this time on interior design brands only. Imagine how hard it was considering new homeware and gifts from 1400 retailers! Autumn Fair is great not only for retailers but also for interior designers, stylist but also great to people who just want to see what’s coming and latest trends. It’s perfecter everyone who want to start their business but also for those who just really love fashion & homeware.
Anyway, I think I skip all the chit chat and just show you in pictures, what you missed! Remember there is a spring Fair coming is you feel inspired, so don’t miss the next one!
