Buyers and suppliers happy to reconnect and return to business as usual
The intimate apparel community came out in force to support the recent edition of INDX Intimate Apparel, which took place 01-03 August at Cranmore Park in Solihull and served to reunite the industry for its first in-person format since February 2020.
The teams responsible for planning the show worked hard to ensure the well-being of all its visitors and exhibitors and despite the challenges of holding a live event during Covid restricted times, the show successfully delivered an exciting showcase of market leading brands and a friendly, professional environment conducive to placing orders.
The three-day event was backed by over 100 brands and was well attended by retailers from across the UK, with everyone keen to get back to business as usual. Exhibitors were among the first to herald the show a success, praising the organisation of the show and the buoyant mood of visiting buyers:
“The show ran smoothly from set-up to break-down and the Covid safety requirements did not detract from the overall feel of the show at all. Although we had several customers cancel their appointments in the days leading up to the show, those customers who did visit were positive, upbeat and ready to buy”. - Michele Duncan, Anita
Visiting buyers and retailers have also been quick to applaud the return to a physical showcase, praising the venue for providing a well-organised and safe environment:
"It was great to get to finally see ranges 'in the flesh' again after such a long time spent in the 2D world! INDX is always a great environment and the show is set-up to allow me to focus and plan out next season's ranges. its been great to catch-up with suppliers and the venue felt very safe from a Covid perspective" - Group Buyer, AIS
INDX Intimate Apparel will return to Cranmore Park from 13 - 15 February 2022 and following the success of the August 2021 edition, exhibitors are already lining-up to reserve their stands.
