Press Release July 2018
The INDX Accessories Philosophy Continues to Reap Success...
The next edition of INDX Accessories is set to take place at Cranmore Park Conference & Event Centre in Solihull from Tuesday 2nd to Thursday 4th October.
Returning with an exciting exhibitor line-up featuring emerging brands, industry leaders and UK trade-show exclusives, the October show promises engaging content specifically curated for all Independent retailers, from boutiques to department stores.
“Our Buyers expect an enticing and inspirational mix of exhibitors each season so it’s extremely important for us to keep sourcing fresh brands and new product ranges as well as attracting key industry names. We have already confirmed over 90 brands for the upcoming show including Kenneth Cole Accessories, Thule, Anekke, Foster Grant, Fiorelli, Jennifer Lopez, Kipling, Gianni Conti, Healthy Back Bag, Cachet London, Gionni, Pia Rossini, Bessie, Envy Bags and David Jones”
- Amanda Partridge – Show Organiser
Falling just before the busy Christmas trading period, the October show provides a well-timed opportunity for Buyers to place top-up orders and buy into new ranges to immediately update their shop floor, in addition to viewing a wealth of new collection launches for SS19. Amanda continues:
“Spending patterns have definitely changed over the last 18 months with Buyers now looking to place more orders in season and we have evolved our exhibitor list to meet this demand. INDX is still a very important forward order showcase but the majority of our exhibitors are now offering immediate and short-order ranges as well”.
The quality and selection of brands on show is just one of the reasons that INDX Accessories is regarded as a key indie buying event and Buyers also site the professional, relaxed and informal buying environment as a major factor in choosing to visit this trade show over any others. Amanda, who has also been an Accessory Buyer herself for the last 15 years goes on to explain:
“INDX Accessories is unique in that we offer a totally Buyer and business focussed approach to trade shows. We have deliberately created a friendly and intimate atmosphere that is more conducive to making buying and ranging decisions and we also provide free parking, free refreshments and complimentary lunch to guarantee our visitors have a stress free experience”.
The show’s support for Buyers doesn’t stop there. There is an opportunity for Buyers and suppliers to network whilst enjoying complimentary drinks and canapés on the second day of the show, at 5.30pm Wednesday 3 October. In addition, INDX organisers regularly follow up with Buyers after the show, updating them on brands in-store success stories to enable them to make more informed future buying decisions.
The INDX philosophy is clearly paying dividends as Buyer attendance continues to increase each season and the October show is already shaping up to be another exciting edition in the INDX portfolio.
