Spring Fair has been named Best Tradeshow Exhibition (above 2,000m) at the annual AEO Excellence Awards 2012.
Held at The Artillery Gardens at The HAC on Friday July 6th, the AEO Excellence Awards is the flagship ceremony for the live events and exhibition industry.
Spring Fair's nomination focused on the re-editing and moving of 3,000 exhibitors across 17 halls to create the new Home and Gift area. The move followed two years' consultation with the market and was done to put buyers' needs and customer experience at the heart of the show, as well as drive value and growth for buyers and exhibitors alike.
Louise Young, i2i Events Group divisional director for Spring Fair, said: "The thanks must really go to our exhibitors who have supported us over the years and allowed us to keep on growing. We are, of course, always looking for ways to improve and innovate, which is why we are not resting on our laurels and have implemented changes recommended by our customers as we plan for next February."
Spring Fair 2013 runs from February 3rd to 7th at the Birmingham NEC.
