87% hike in exhibitor numbers at Fashion SVP

The organisers of Fashion SVP, the near-shore sourcing event, have hailed the third edition as a major success, with overall visitor numbers up by 148% and an 87% increase of major high street retailers and brands.

The event, which took place at London’s Olympia, had relocated to the newly refurbished Olympia Central to accommodate the growing showcase of suppliers representing 14 countries at this years’ event.

The number of seminars doubled since the previous event and the majority of the 8 sessions this year were packed with standing room only. George Clothing’s Koray Gul, M&Co.’s Julia Redman and The Alliance project’s Lorna Fitzsimons gave presentations on key issues, such as Far East vs.

Near East Sourcing, Developing Successful Supplier Relationships and Making it in Britain. Other themes included sustainable fabrics, evaluating new suppliers and a regional briefing on Romanian production. These were met with strong approval by leading sourcing managers from both the UK and overseas.

In the exhibition, 53% of the floor space was reserved by exhibitors for next year’s event.

Event director Buzz Carter commented, “This was a tremendous success for Fashion SVP as can be seen by the show statistics as well as the enthusiasm of our visitors, many of which were visiting for the first time. Our team have worked tirelessly to improve and develop the event from its humble origins of just 17 exhibitors 2 years ago to over 100 manufacturers and brands represented in the hall last week.

"We are particular grateful to our excellent seminar presenters who delighted the audience, and to the members of our informal advisory board – senior executives from M&S, Debenhams, River Island, M&Co., Musto, and others who gave their valuable time and experience to help guide the event forward. We look forward to working closely with the industry over the coming months toward the next exciting edition.”

The next London Show will take place at Olympia on 21st to 23rd September 2014.
