London’s Off-Price Show, Mar. 14-15, attracted a 21% increase in buyers from a year ago, with exhibitors meeting more overseas buyers than before and reporting strong orders throughout the show.

Compared to the previous shows, the March edition attracted more international buyers with 22% of its visitors coming from over 35 countries including Poland, Czech Republic, South Africa, Ireland, Cyprus, Germany, Russia, Morocco, Libya, Spain, Sweden, Norway, France, Austria, Lithuania, Greece, the USA, Canada, Ukraine and Italy.

Said Robbie Bull of Trespass: “Trespass had a very good response at this year’s
Off-Price Show. We saw a great mix of buyers from both the UK and abroad. We were very pleased with the level of orders we wrote onsite and we picked up some very exciting new business particularly from central and eastern Europe. The event was very well-organized and we look forward to returning to the show in the near future.”

The next Off-Price Show takes place in Warsaw on Jun. 22-23, while the London edition will run from Sept. 26-27, 2010.
