Welcome to our Autumn Fair issue! After Home & Gift kicked things off brilliantly in July, the industry looks forward to the return of Autumn Fair, running live at Birmingham’s NEC from 5-8 September. We catch up with event director Jessica Dawnay to discover why the team at Hyve believes live shows are such a crucial part of our industry, and we have a bumper show preview.
We also look forward to Top Drawer AW at Olympia and the London Stationery Show at the Business Design Centre.
Yankee Candle are our cover stars this month, encouraging us to look ahead to Christmas with a joyful fragrance offering that celebrates all the landmark occasions that bring about seasonal cheer.
Our big retail interview is with Fleming’s department store in Ireland, and we have our Retailers’ Panel and Trade Talk feature for further comment, too.
There’s also our popular At Home feature, our fashion-led InStyle category, and plenty of new products. All this and the news, views and latest launches you can rely on us for. You can read the issue HERE.
