WHY VISIT US?
It’s great! You can meet the face behind the supplier, you get to build a rapport and relationship with the supplier and see the quality of their products, to touch and feel them.
I came specifically for the seminars and found them really useful and interesting. The speakers took time for questions, but they had covered the topics so well that we didn’t feel the need to ask any!
A unique event specifically focused on ‘apparel, footwear and accessory’ sourcing
is designed especially for those who want to buy directly from the producers. The show provides you with the opportunity to meet directly with manufacturers, so you can discover what Europe, Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean has to offer. Held over two days at Olympia, London’s premier event venue, we also present fascinating seminars and features so you get the latest fashion know-how, evaluate potential new suppliers and network with other like-minded fashion people.
