Workwear & Corporate Clothing show proves its worth at NEC
May '08
The very first Workwear and Corporate Clothing Show has been described as a resounding success, after over 1,600 visitors and exhibitors came from all over the world to support it.

The show, which is organised by Corporate Clothes Show LLP, took place on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd April, at the Birmingham NEC.

It is the only exhibition dedicated to senior buyers, specifiers and suppliers working in the vibrant and dynamic working garment industry, and, as such, drew international delegates, exhibitors and attendees from as far as China, Japan, Pakistan, India and Europe.

A Warm Reception:
Apart from the 60 plus stands that filled the hall, the two-day event featured stunning catwalk fashion shows sponsored by Russell Europe, a series of interactive and informative workshop seminars sponsored by Syscom PLC, and a buyers' champagne cocktail party sponsored by Buffera.

Joint managing director of Corporate Clothes Show LLP Lorne Cheetham said: “The show has been extremely well received by visitors and exhibitors alike.

Our attendance and the feedback we have had from our exhibiting companies has been very positive, and we have proved there is a real need for an inspirational event for fashionable image conscious buyers of uniforms and workwear clothing.”

Karen Sparrow, head of uniforms at Virgin Atlantic, who attended the Workwear and Corporate Clothing Show and took part in the Buyers Advice Forum, said: “The Workwear and Corporate Clothing Show has provided me and my team with the ideal opportunity to meet with manufacturers, suppliers and textile producers of a variety of different products.
