Reflecting on a Successful SS18 & Looking Forward to AW18

INDX Intimate Apparel reflecting on a Successful SS18 Show and looking forward to AW18
In August 2017, INDX Intimate Apparel unveiled an extended and expanded show format which received rave reviews from visitors and exhibitors alike.
Showcasing ranges from over 175 brands, adding a Sunday opening and welcoming over 500 buyers, INDX Intimate Apparel united the industry and became the only show of its kind in the UK.
Following this success and continuing with this proven format, INDX Intimate Apparel will return to Cranmore Park in Solihull from 18-20 February 2018 and over 155 brands are already confirmed to attend.
“We are delighted with the response the August show received. We were supported by a record number of Buyers and Brands, we welcomed a large number of first–time visitors and we have been overwhelmed with positive comments and feedback.
We look forward to presenting an impressive AW18 showcase in February – and have some excellent labels already on board including plenty of exciting new brands. We will be revealing the confirmed line-up over the next few months so watch this space!” - Amanda Partridge, Show Organiser
As was the case in August, the February INDX Intimate Apparel show will run concurrently with Moda at the NEC and, as Amanda points out …
“Cranmore Park is only a few miles from the NEC so it makes it easier for retailers who look after wider category buying to attend both shows”.
INDX Intimate Apparel named Supporting Partner at the UKLA 2018
In September, INDX Intimate Apparel was named supporting partner to the 2018 UK Lingerie Awards which will culminate in a glittering black – tie event on 19 February 2018.
Taking place at the St Johns Hotel in Solihull, just a stone’s throw from Cranmore Park and during the INDX Intimate Apparel show, the awards ceremony promises to be a fantastic evening of celebration and will be the perfect way to take a break between 3 days at the show.
Amanda is delighted to link INDX with the awards and says, “Lingerie Insight (the organisers of the UKLA) have been a long-standing supporter of INDX Intimate Apparel so when they approached us to be involved with the UKLA it seemed a natural partnership.
Celebrating the industry’s best Brands, retailers and distributors is definitely something we are looking forward to and holding the awards night during the show makes perfect sense – a further opportunity for buyers and suppliers to come together”
"I would like to congratulate all those who have put on the most inspiring lingerie exhibition for many years. From the arrival desk to lunch (and complimentary coffees) to the general buzz around the halls – I enjoyed every minute" - Buyer, Pure Mischief
"Thank you for the warm, inviting and almost 'homely' atmosphere. We appreciate being part of this and look forward to it every time" - Buyer, Simply Hosiery
"Thanks for an excellent exhibition. Free parking, excellent registration procedure (my badge was ready for me!), friendly staff, coffee and lunch included and a whole host of new suppliers to meet. You have way exceeded my expectations and if I was organising an exhibition, this is exactly how it would run! You created the perfect environment to develop business relationships" - Buyer, Natural Curves
"Many thanks for putting on such a well-organized and friendly show. Food and beverages wonderful" - Buyer, Fleur Lingerie
"Really enjoyed the whole show. There was so much to see and so we couldn't quite fit all of it in! Loved the free and convenient parking, the seating areas and the free lunch. I'll definitely be back" – Buyer, Monaco Beach
