Autumn Fair Birmingham says that after a successful 2007 event there is now a waiting list for stands within the Kitchen & Dining sector.
For Ethos, the Tuesday of this year’s show was a record for written orders at any show, while on the Sunday RTA took almost as many orders as it did during the whole of the previous year’s fair. The Cookshop and Housewares Association Pavilion offered some 20 suppliers, up from 16 in 2006, and commented that Autumn Fair improved each year.
Companies making their debut in Hall 2 included Addis, Kitchen Craft, In2Home/Menu, Burton McCall, Emsa, Ewbank, Salter, Hahn, Tradestock, Kuhn Rikon, Arthur Price and WMF.
Arthur Price and WMF have already rebooked their stands, along with Fairmont & Main, Le Creuset, Typhoon, Ethos and T&G Woodware. In total, over half of Autumn Fair exhibitors have confirmed their participation next year.
