Jewellery & Watch and Fashion (JWF), part of Hyve Group’s Autumn Fair, is set to return in a physical format after the pandemic.
It will take place at the usual venue of Birmingham’s NEC from 5-8 September, 2021, with the show organisers promising to provide key networking opportunities to kickstart the industry once more.
Some of the names already announced to be joining the JWF line-up are Lido Pearls, Paradise Jewellery and Amber Hall Jewellery.
Speaking on Hyve Group’s efforts to create a Covid-safe space for the show, Julie Driscoll, managing director for Hyve’s UK retail and fashion portfolio, commented: “We are delighted to finally be returning to the thing we do best; market-leading events facilitating trade, collaboration and creativity.
“We’re working hard to make our in-person shows safe and secure and we can’t wait to welcome our community back to the NEC Birmingham after such a long time apart.’’
British Independent Retailers Association (BIRA) commercial director, Jeff Moody, added: “BIRA are delighted to be at Autumn Fair, as our independent retailers are so eager to see new product ranges and reconnect with suppliers and fellow retailers.
“It’s been such a long time since the industry has been able to meet together and Autumn Fair will be a much-awaited opportunity for the industry to reunite.”
