February show welcomes influx of new visitors

Record Attendance for INDX Menswear & Footwear Show

The menswear community turned out in force earlier this month, in support of the industry’s much-loved trade show, INDX Menswear & Footwear, which took place at Cranmore Park exhibition venue in Solihull on 6-8 February. Amidst the ongoing challenges of holding a live format event, visitor attendance for this edition of INDX Menswear & Footwear has broken all previous records, and the show welcomed over 700 visitors across its three-day duration.

INDX Menswear & Footwear Organiser, Alyson Lyndon reflects on a positive show:

Visitor turnout has been amazing, and it’s been lovely to host such a busy, buzzy and upbeat show! It has also been encouraging to welcome so many new retailers, and exhibitors have been delighted with the business written across the 3 days, and in particular with the number of new accounts opened. We recognise the importance of continued industry collaboration, and we would like to thank all our exhibitors whose support led to a very inclusive industry event. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon”.

Delivering an exciting showcase, which this season featured over 140 market leading brands, INDX Menswear & Footwear 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 Menswear & Footwear is a key order-writing show and a must-visit for all menswear stockists. There was a collectively buoyant atmosphere and positive mood during the event and ensuing feedback has been extremely positive:

"The INDX team are always devoted to delivering the best show possible which is proven by the caliber of retailer that is in attendance. The show provides a professional environment to engage with current and potential new clients.” - Chris Allso,  Levi’s Footwear and Accessories

It was good to engage again with customers at this very commercial show. Buyers and sellers can interact in a professional but relaxed atmosphere where good partnerships can thrive. The INDX Menswear & Footwear show was a success for Weird Fish and we look forward to seeing old and new customers again in the summer for SS2023 collections” – Peter Darby, Weird Fish  

We were delighted to exhibit at the show.  We find the event well organised professional yet friendly and it was so enjoyable to meet face to face so many of our customers and welcome many new retailers to the Meyer stand.  The show is ideal for exhibiting our new collections and catching up on current business with each buyer.  It’s a must visit UK trade show for any menswear retailers.  Looking forward to the July event!” - Iain Leighton & Richard Wheelhouse, Meyer UK Agents

This proved to be another strong INDX Menswear & Footwear show, building on the bounce back of the 2021 show. Positive comments and strong feedback from retailers and great to get back to normality once again”-  Marc Thompson, bugatti UK Agent

We were delighted to bring A Fish named FRED to the INDX fair as first-time exhibitors. It was great to be back socialising with customers and fellow exhibitors during the 3 days of positive meetings. The show was very well organised and the AFNF team were very pleased to 'reel in' some excited new customers! We look forward to 'casting our net' further at the next INDX fair in July as we continue to bring fun and laughter to the shop floor!” - Nigel Pinnock, A Fish named Fred

"There are so many top suppliers to the retail industry that INDX Menswear & Footwear is a must visit show...it's a very nice venue, the staff are all very helpful and I find it a very nice experience every time I attend” - Alan Murray, Peakes Menswear

It was good to see the show back to pre-pandemic size with a good representation of brands and retailers getting prepared for what we hope is a good AW season. There was a real buzz about the place, and I was able to do a lot of forward buying. Looking forward now to a good summer season, before we meet again in July” – Phil Adams, Store Manager, Smith Bradbeer
