New leaders appointed at Spring Fair and Autumn Fair

Hyve Group has announced the appointment of two new leaders to its team: Jackson Szabo as portfolio director for Spring Fair and Autumn Fair; and Soraya Gadelrab as the new event director for Spring Fair and Autumn Fair.

These senior appointments aim to strengthen and revitalise the leadership team for these key retail wholesale shopping destinations.

Nicola Meadows, divisional MD for Hyve's Retail, Manufacturing and Engineering division, says: “Their fresh perspectives and wealth of experience will undoubtedly invigorate our sector.

"Bringing together years of experience with a track record of innovation and success, these talented individuals will propel the team forward setting new standards within our industry. Jackson and Soraya are brimming with exciting ideas that will inspire. Their vision and creativity will shape our future endeavours, fostering growth and excellence. With their arrival, we’re embarking on an exciting chapter – together, driving positive change and achieving remarkable results.”

Jackson comments: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining Spring Fair and Autumn Fair, brands that are aspirational for anyone in the UK events industry. Spring Fair is coming up to 75 years old, and was the first show to call the NEC home, as well as being the largest show in Europe.

"Spring Fair and Autumn Fair exist to serve the retail industry – an industry fuelled by Britain’s entrepreneurs, bellwethers and creative minds, and I very much look forward to working with this incredible community to ensure that the shows do everything they can to drive value to retailers and suppliers alike while serving and supporting both exciting new businesses and institutional incumbents.”

Soraya says: “I’m incredibly excited to be joining the team at Spring Fair and Autumn Fair. I look forward to working with this passionate team to drive forward these heritage events, ensuring we evolve them to reflect the ever-changing retail sector which we serve.”

Spring Fair will take place on 4-7th February next year, and Autumn Fair from 1st-4th September, both at the NEC, Birmingham.
