INDX Menswear AW18 Thank You
INDX Menswear 2018 Grows to a Record Attendance...
INDX Menswear January 2018 continued to grow and attract more buyers and brands with a record attendance! Thank you to all the buyers and exhibitors who supported the event.
The latest edition of INDX Menswear opened its doors from Sunday 28 to Tuesday 30 January 2018 with an expanded format, the largest brand offering to date and pre-show visitor registrations higher than ever before. There was a buoyant and positive atmosphere throughout the 3 day event.
This show was the biggest event to date and ended on a high with an incredibly encouraging result and increases in all areas. A second showroom with its own coffee plaza increased the exhibition space and brand offering by 20%. Visitor pre-registrations and visitor numbers attending both increased by over 50% on last season’s and last year’s shows. New brands, additional exhibitor space, the facilities offered to visitors at the show combined with marketing and social media campaigns resulted in an over 50% increase in new stores visiting INDX for the first time.
Feedback received from buyers at the show;
“We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to INDX. We have been to various other trade shows but found INDX to be more relaxing than most. It was very useful to be able to look at the new autumn ranges. All in all, a calm atmosphere, no pressure, and as all our reps and agents said a great lunch! Thank you, we look forward to seeing you in July.”
“The show was very good. What was important was that it was just menswear, more compact and no distractions”
“Now that the show starts on a Sunday, I am able to visit and gain an overview of trends and direction and make a very useful start to the Autumn/Winter buying, enjoy a super lunch, coffee and cake and all within a two hour drive. We will return in July.”
“Great event and we managed to see all our suppliers on the day.”
“Excellent show, we were very pleased with the exhibitors and the facilities provided.”
“First visit ever and we were impressed!! Thank you.”
“We really enjoyed the day with a good selection of suppliers, we managed to pick up another two brands to add to our collection. We found the day relaxing and you could get round easily and the lunch/refreshments went down a treat. Thank you very much.”
Many exhibitors reported a very successful show with orders taken up against previous show with some writing more orders than any previous INDX event and many opening new accounts.
“The end result was more orders which was great news and I had some good conversations with new people. The whole show had a great buzz to it. Congratulations to you all for another great event.”
“We are very pleased to see that the show is really growing. “
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the show and compliments on the great organization. We have had good results and picked up some new clients.”
“It was an excellent show and there was definitely a ‘buzz’ about the place. The retailers I spoke to were very positive about the show, which is also very encouraging. For us INDX is an important show.”
“The show attendance increased significantly again from the last show, so we are really pleased how this is building and this is transferring to more orders being placed with brands at the show and we will continue to support and exhibit.”
