Fashion Trade Shows 2020 | Wholesalers For Boutiques

If you are wondering how to buy wholesale or how to sell wholesale, you must attend trade shows and apparel markets (and stop buying vendor lists)!  

Trade Shows are a major source of inspiration and empower you to stay abreast of emerging fashion trends and emerging brands in the fashion industry. Attending trade shows is truly an inspirational high and I strongly encourage retailers and boutiques to attend to discover new products and ways to refresh their assortment, and for brands to attend as exhibitors to connect with new buyers, boutiques, and industry mavens, and to stay competitive in their market.  Before you jump on the next trip to China to find manufacturers, you must make sure you have first attended national trade shows – I promise you will thank me.  It makes searching for wholesale clothing for boutique owners drastically easier and more cost effective.

If you have been thinking about attending a trade show to find wholesalers for boutiques, or exhibiting in a trade show to sell wholesale, but are unsure where to start, let’s create a strategic merchandising plan together to ensure your success. Or if you would like to attend a fashion trade show with a retail industry expert, I attend trade shows with our clients to help them navigate and maximize their time at the show, while simultaneously assisting them in executing their merchandising buying strategy we created together as a part of our merchandising strategy consulting services.

And I beg you – DO NOT buy merchandise vendor lists. 

There are millions of products and vendors worldwide available to do business with. A vendor list means you are purchasing the same vendors that hundreds or even thousands of other boutiques are – hence competing with one another and not creating your own brand identity – which is not a sustainable business model.  If you’ve had thoughts about purchasing a vendor list, I would recommend you ask yourself what your passion is – is it to just make money or is it to serve unique and curated pieces to your customers?  The most exciting part of owning a boutique is the hunt for merchandise and the highs of the finds. 

If trade shows seem intimidating to you, that’s what we’re here for! Click here to schedule a consultation and let’s chat about us attending with you, or even going on your behalf, to source the perfect products for your store.

 

Here is a list of Major U.S. Home & Fashion Trade Shows and International Home & Fashion Trade Shows you should attend in 2020.

Click the name of the trade show for boutique owners to be taken to the show website.

Note: when you see multiple shows in the same city and dates, it typically means that they are all near one another / in the same buildings so you can attend multiple shows at once.  Shows or events outside the United States are highlighted in burgundy text.

Make sure you download the FAVES app for buyers before you attend a trade show! You will thank me later, trust me!

***please note – due to COVID, many trade shows have cancelled their in-person experience and moved to showing digitally.  Click the name of the trade show for the latest updates***

    Morning guys

    I have checked up your site using ahrefs and I noticed that you have some very solid backlinks.

    Could I ask you whether you got them off this site? https://wowitloveithaveit.com/products/quality-backlinks-for-your-website

    I have started my own site and I desperately need links to rank better on Google. I am on bloody page 20 and it sucks.

    Would be most obliged for your help and guidance.

    Cheers!

    Im impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog thats both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100 sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
