INDX trade shows report record visitors numbers and "buzzy" atmosphere
Despite the ongoing challenges of holding live format events, visitor attendance for both INDX trade shows were high, with INDX Menswear & Footwear breaking all previous records and welcoming over 700 visitors across its three-day duration.
INDX Womenswear & Footwear returned to Cranmore Park exhibition venue in Solihull on 2-3 February, followed by INDX Menswear & Footwear on 6-8 February.
INDX Womenswear exhibited sustainable & ethical fashion, denimwear, casualwear, lifestyle, formalwear, footwear, and outerwear and welcomed a host of first-time exhibitors, alongside key returning suppliers. INDX Menswear showcased more than 140 brands with newcomers and returning brands sharing their positive outlook of the show.
Ally Tyler from Kite Clothing commented on INDX Womenswear: “I opened a number of accounts during the 2 days – and I don’t think I’m done yet! This has been a great result for our brand, and I’d like to thank the organisers for such an encouraging show”.
INDX Womenswear & Footwear Show Organiser, Liz Ayto, added: “We are delighted to have been able to connect retailers and suppliers face-to-face, and once again, the show was well received by our industry colleagues. We would like to thank all those who attended for their continued support and we would also like to thank our exhibitors who helped to make the show such a positive experience for our buyers”.
Peter Darby from Weirdfish commented on INDX Menswear: “It was good to engage again with customers at this very commercial show. Buyers and sellers can interact in a professional but relaxed atmosphere where good partnerships can thrive.”
INDX Menswear & Footwear Organiser, Alyson Lyndon, added: “Visitor turnout has been amazing, and it’s been lovely to host such a busy, buzzy and upbeat show, and to see so many familiar faces. It has also been encouraging to welcome so many new retailers, and whilst exhibitors have been generally delighted with the level of orders placed across the 3 days, the number of new accounts opened has been significant. We recognise the importance of continued industry collaboration, and we would like to thank all our exhibitors whose support led to a very meaningful event in what continues to be a very challenging period. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon”.
INDX Menswear & Footwear will return to Cranmore Park from 17-19 July 2022, followed by INDX Womenswear & Footwear on 27-28 July 2022.
