Businesses prepare to return for rebranded show, Jewellery, Watch & Fashion at Autumn Fair in September and Spring Fair in February 2021.
Trade show Jewellery & Watch is celebrating a successful 2020 edition, bolstered by its move to Hall 1 of the NEC, Birmingham and its close ties to Spring Fair.
Exhibiting brands and businesses reported positive footfall and order numbers, as well as a wealth of new opportunities to be explored post-show.
Kate Murphy, commercial development manager at Tianguis Jackson, comments: “We were very pleased with the level of fresh business and especially the quality of new opportunities that opened up at the show.”
The festive period was extended for the North Yorkshire town of Harrogate which enjoyed an influx of 5,000 visitors to the town in January; as people flocked to participate in the UK’s favourite trade show for the Christmas industry – Harrogate Christmas & Gift.
The show, which celebrated its 70th anniversary is hugely popular with department stores, independent retailers, gift shops, garden centres, tourist attractions and event organisers all looking to maximise opportunities with the very latest offerings in decorations, lights, gift ranges and products for the home and garden the entire year round.
The 2020 show was another huge success for both the companies exhibiting products and the visitors attending in search of new lines to tempt their customers or make their venues stand out from the crowd.
