For ten years already, Off-Price Show in London has been the buying event for both small and volume buyers, of discounting branded and unbranded fashion. Between March 13 and 14, visitors were able to buy products of exhibitors like Superdry, Boston Jeans or Zoe Footwear. Apart from the brands, specialist wholesalers, importers, manufactures and distributors presented their goods. Visitor numbers increased by 42% compared to the last show in March 2010.

“We are absolutely delighted. The explosion in visitor numbers and the amount of business being done, suggests that confidence is returning to buyers. On Sunday, you could hardly move through the aisles, and the turnout of larger buyers on Monday was excellent. The show itself was larger and more varied with many new types of fashion products presented. Looking forward, we are already sold out by over 70% for our next event,” CEO, Buzz Carter from organizer Idex exhibitions, said.

A new area in this season was ‘The village’ for up-and-coming suppliers. With 15 companies showcasing, it was a big success. The ambition of this area was the possibility to meet new and innovative exhibitors.

The next show will run Sep. 11-12, 2011, in a bigger location.
