February 2022 | Visiting buyers in buoyant mood
The childrenswear community turned out in force last month, in support of the industry’s much-loved national trade show, INDX Kidswear, which took place at Cranmore Park exhibition venue in Solihull on 30-31 January.
Amidst the ongoing challenges of holding a live format event, visitor attendance for this edition of INDX Kidswear was close to its pre-COVID levels, and the show welcomed over 600 visitors across its two-day duration.
INDX Kidswear organiser, Varsha Chohan reflects on a positive show:
“Visitor turnout has been amazing, and we are now getting back to the attendance recorded in 2020, pre-COVID. It’s been lovely to host such a busy and buzzy show and to see so many familiar faces. It’s also been encouraging to welcome so many new businesses, and whilst exhibitors have been generally delighted with the level of orders placed across the 2 days, the number of new accounts opened has been significant”.
Delivering an exciting showcase, which this season featured over 130 market leading brands, INDX Kidswear is part of the INDX group of trade shows which delivers over 20 shows a year across fashion and home sectors and is brought to market by leading UK buying group Associated Independent Stores (AIS).
Renowned for its unique business and buyer focussed format, INDX Kidswear is a key order-writing show and a must-visit for all childrenswear stockists. Buyers displayed a collectively buoyant mood during the event and ensuing visitor feedback has been extremely positive:
“This edition of the show was really inspiring, and I was able to place orders with all my key suppliers, in addition to sourcing some lovely new brands to put in front of my customers. It’s great to be involved in such a friendly industry and to be able to attend such an exciting industry show” – Annmarie Collie-King, Group Buyer, AIS
Exhibitors who supported the recent show have also been quick to praise its success:
“INDX Kidswear has a great atmosphere, its perfect for meeting up with both customers and fellow suppliers alike, all under one roof! It’s the ideal venue to seek quality sales leads and in terms of business opportunities, we have opened numerous new accounts with both 'bricks and mortar' shops and online businesses”. - Mark Loveland, Pex
“INDX Kidswear is an exhibition you should not miss out on. If you're interested in United Kingdom and Ireland markets, to attend INDX Kidswear is essential” - Chelo Martinez, Rapife
INDX Kidswear will return to Cranmore Park from 03 – 04 July 2022, and exhibitors are already lining-up to reserve their stands. Visitor registration is open and can be completed via the website: www.indxshows.co.uk/indx-fashion/kidswear/kidswear
