Two nursery companies have been awarded free exhibition space at this year’s Autumn Fair after winning a #SBS (Small Business Sunday) competition.
The winners will be taking centre stage in the Pavilion showcase at Autumn Fair, which is taking place from 2 – 5 September at Birmingham NEC.
The winning businesses – MK Kids Interiors (personalised children’s interior design company) and Z-O-E (designer muslin babywear) – were carefully selected based on their uniqueness and relevance to Autumn Fair’s retail visitors.
The #SBS community was founded by entrepreneur and small business champion Theo Paphitis, who is also hosting the Pavilion showcase, which is dedicated to highlighting new and unique products from ambitious start-ups and small businesses.
“These winners are fantastic representatives of the #SBS community,” said Theo. “With their free space at Autumn Fair, they’ll get stand-out access to the greatest gathering of retail buyers in the UK, and have a chance to champion their products face-to-face. It’s an unrivalled level of exposure for these companies, and could be the catalyst to significant growth for their business.”
“Deciding the winners has been no easy task,” added Louise Young, managing director of Spring & Autumn Fair. “We thank Theo for helping to organise the competition and look forward to welcoming him and his winners to the show. Autumn Fair will be the perfect platform for these fledgling small businesses to reach out to new clients and forge strong partnerships ahead of what could be a transformative golden quarter for them.”
