Spring Fair announces celebrity line-up

From Sopie Conran to Cath Kidston, some of the best-known names in home and tableware will be in attendance at the upcoming Birmingham show

As thousands of suppliers and retailers gear up for the UK’s largest retail trade event, Spring Fair 2016, some of the best-known names in home and tableware are also getting set to attend the exhibition.

Great British Bake Off star Paul Hollywood, designers Sophie Conran and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen will all put in appearances at Spring Fair, which takes place from February 7 – 11 at The NEC, Birmingham.

Doyenne of the design world, Cath Kidston, will also be at the show to present the Gift of the Year Awards 2016 as ambassador for The Giftware Association.

Along with celebrity-endorsed new product launches, numerous special events are scheduled to take place over the course of Spring Fair, including a huge birthday party being hosted by Carte Blanche Group to celebrate the 21st birthday of the world’s most successful cute brand, Me to You.

Another key birthday will be celebrated by The NEC itself, which commemorates 40 years as the UK’s primary exhibition venue this February. Visitors should be on the alert for ‘random acts of kindness’ that The NEC management intends to lavish on those attending the show that helped put the Exhibition Centre on the map!
