News from our partners Buy-From Shropshire

The prestigious International Spring Fair, which sees over 60,000 attendees, returns to the NEC, Birmingham next month (4 February – 8 February) and Buy-From Shropshire, in association with the Giftware Association, will be taking 11 producers to the event to showcase their fantastic products.

The Giftware Association has over 70 years’ experience in the home and gift industry supporting businesses and championing the talent and creativity of their members.

Buy-From Shropshire works to promote Shropshire producers as well as offering them extensive levels of support for their business development and growth. By making collaborations, such as the one with The Giftware Association, it offers up incredible opportunities for its business network.

The 11 producers will all be taking an exhibition space at the NEC with most them located in Hall 5 on a shared stand with The Giftware Association.  There will be trade industry- related talks, meetings between retailers and suppliers, opportunities to meet retail outlets and ‘buyers’, as well as endless networking for the businesses involved.

This unprecedented opportunity for the Buy-From Shropshire producers has the potential to completely upscale their business and grow it overnight. A trade show of this size would usually be inaccessible to many small businesses due to the financial implications, even though it will ensure they are putting their brand in front of a captive audience.

It’s a fantastic chance to show off a small section of the dynamic and entrepreneurial rural businesses of Shropshire; from original artwork and educational children’s books, to beautiful artisan chocolate and small batch exclusive flavoured vodka.

The producers attending are: Emma Lawrence Designs, Meg Hawkins Art, Cherie Did This, Tipsy Tart, Champion & Reeves, Anne Reeves Jewellery, Lish d’Lish, Risdon & Risdon, Bradleys the Tannery, Ruth Gibson Ceramics, Lesley Palmer Art.

If you are attending, make sure you visit the stand (5C82 – D83) and say hello to these first-time exhibitors, all of whom are ready to take their unique products to a global audience.
