On Friday, the Government confirmed that Auckland will remain in Alert Level 3 until 11.59pm on 26 August.
With this in mind we have made the difficult decision not to run Spring Gift Fair 2020. We know that for the safety of our exhibitors, visitors, partners, suppliers, and our own team that this is the best decision to be made at this time. We are saddened and heartbroken by this outcome as most of you will be aware we had the same situation earlier on in the year with the Winter Gift Fair.
Add to that the pent up demand to attend this show with record Gift Fair pre-registrations tracking well ahead of same time last year. It’s been a very challenging year and we’re all digging deep. We do however remain entirely supportive of the Government’s position, regardless of the importance of events to the wider economy.
The next edition of the Gift Fairs is the Autumn Gift Fair 7 – 9 March 2021. We hope to see you all there.

It is with regret that we must announce Spring Gift Fair is unable to run as planned due to the Government’s confirmation of Auckland to remain in alert Level 3. Further updates will be provided in the coming days but in the meantime thank you for your support and please stay safe.
