Spring Fair announces new manifesto for 2022

by | Dec 14, 2021 | Community, News | 0 comments

Home, gift and fashion event Spring Fair has revealed that its manifesto for 2022 is Empowering Change. The manifesto will set the agenda for the live show’s Inspiring Retail Stage as well as a year-round content programme.

Outlining the Empowering Change manifesto, Suzanne Ellingham, head of content, Hyve Group plc says: “Retail is in a state of incredible transformation. Technology enables customers to shop anywhere, any time, and in any way that they want. The competitive landscape has changed, and even online retailers are now facing increasing costs and hostile marketing conditions. In a time when staying the same means you are moving backwards, expecting different results from the same tactics doesn’t make sense. I am really excited about this year’s Empowering Change editorial theme. The schedule will be packed full of incredible speakers and participants, helpful and inspiring insights, newness as well as the essential trends for 2022 and beyond.”

Created as a platform to champion retail, the Inspiring Retail Stage’s full schedule of live content from experts in their field will provided exclusive insights, trend reports, keynote conversations, and panel discussions on the key topics facing retail. Each of the four days of the show will cover a dedicated theme correlated to the Empowering Change manifesto.

On Sunday 6 February, the theme will be ‘Future of retail is collaborative’, followed by ‘Sustainability and Innovation now’ on Monday 7 February. The next day, Tuesday 8 February, the stage will focus on ‘Changing mindsets – being comfortable with the unknown in order to thrive’. On the final day, Wednesday 9 February, ‘The way we do things’ will be the theme of each discussion.

The full Inspiring Retail Stage line-up will be announced in the next few weeks. Spring Fair will be taking place from 6-9 February 2022 at the NEC Birmingham.
