NEC Birmingham trade show Spring Fair has announced a “major upgrade” to its content programme ahead of its upcoming February edition. As well as its line-up of exhibitors across home, gift and fashion, organisers have also added three new education-led stages to help retail professionals update their skills.

Each will deliver free business and trends insight from industry leaders throughout the event’s four-day duration.

Its new line-up includes the Inspiring Retail Stage, offering a keynote speech from retail entrepreneur Theo Paphitis, industry insight from the British Retail Consortium’s Kris Hamer and sustainability advice from PDS Ltd’s Paul Wright.  

Buyers will also be able to learn about the latest retail trends and product innovations on the Trends Talks stage. There will also be a series of TED-style talks on an array of topics from leading agencies and consultants via the Masterclass Studio.

Event director Soraya Gadelrab says: “As we gear up for the biggest retail event of the year, we are proud to introduce three new features that will undoubtedly elevate your show experience. Get ready to be inspired, informed, and empowered at the Inspiring Retail Stage, Trend Talks and Masterclass Studio. Spring Fair 2024 is all about bringing the retail community together. With these three new features, we are confident that our event will elevate the retail industry to great heights.”

The next edition of Spring Fair and Moda takes place from 7-10 February at NEC Birmingham; for more information, visit springfair.com
