The Urban Apparel Trade show is a one day event coming to Manchester this Saturday. It is for Independent brands from around the North West to network, sell and promote their fashions and accessories.
Over 100 Small, medium and large brands will be able to rent a stall for the day, which they can customise, at Event City. Buyers will be able to browse the independent brand stalls at the event, with a goal of allowing them to look at the products, talk with the manufacturers face-to-face and if they like the brands, this could potentially lead to them featuring in their stores in the future.
Most of the independent brands that will be showcasing at the event are mainly online, limiting their sales. Some of these brands do not have the benefit of knowing how to maximise the use of social media or the internet and potentially, do not yet have a large following as they are small and ‘unknown’. Items or information posted in cyberspace, may not reach their targeted customers unless endorsed by someone with a larger following. These brands are also missing out on those shoppers who like to see/touch products, to assure themselves of the items quality and exact style. They are also missing out on passing footfall trade which the highstreet names have. This event hopes to help these companies grow their audience and act as an introducer.
The team behind the event want to put on these shows regularly to help brands to reach their potential customers face to face, as well as meeting Shop buyers and suppliers. These events should be used by brands to have the chance to expand their client base and public awareness.
There will also be music from local bands as well as food stalls to feed your appetite while you shop!
You can buy tickets for this one day only event online now for just £3 or you can pay on the door for £5. Doors open at 12pm and the event finishes at 10pm. So before you head into the Trafford to shop this weekend, why not visit Event City for some independent and individual pieces to add to your wardrobe.
