Your personal Expert & Mentor at the Show

Clients state that the Fashion Industry has become more complexe and unpredictable.
Do you agree?

At Pure London this season, a 10-year old Brand and a 20+year old Manufacturer and Retailer said that they did not know it all and one added "I don't know what I don't know".
The Brand realised that the USA market had nothing to do with his European experience and wasted over 3 seasons and over £20 000 doing the wrong things while trying to export to the United States.
The Manufacturer said a similar thing about building their own Brand abroad as a manufacturer. 

Is Retail different? Not at all.
A weak point that we see around the world and at Whos Next every season is BUYING & MERCHANDISING.

Workshops to grow Retail & Wholesale Sales

Today, as the business is becoming more complex and nobody knows it all, it is paramount for retailers and brands to benefit from support and assistance to cover many business questions they have.

Who's Next Tradeshow has spotted this need from Retailers many years ago and launched the RETAIL EXPERT CLUB. 
After a few years, it was obvious that 40 to 50% of the attendees and private meetings were requested by Brand owners.
The concept changed and was named FASHION SOLUTIONS.
