The future of trade shows

How do you feel about virtual trade shows?

2020 has certainly changed the way the whole world works and does business, but if you are in the business of developing or sourcing products, how does that look for you?
I can’t see that long haul buying trips will be happening in the way they used to. Far too risky that the whole team might end up quarantined for weeks after they get back, or worse still stuck somewhere and unable to get back.
And what does this mean for trade shows, which have been one of the main ways that ranges were selected, new brands were discovered and suppliers were found?
In this episode, I look at how trade shows are changing and how that might affect your business.

More about our virtual trade show

Make it British Live! Online

24th & 25th September 2020

The virtual version of the Make it British Live! trade show –  connecting buyers and designers with UK manufacturers of fashion, textiles and homeware.

Make it British Live! was due to take place on 17th & 18th March at the Business Design Centre, but like all trade shows and events that were due to take place this year, we sadly had to postpone it.

But connecting with people in the industry is still very important, especially right now when so many businesses that previously sourced from overseas are now moving their production closer to home.

So we wanted to find a way to still bring everyone together.

Join us from the comfort of your desk, factory or home!

Just like the real event, the virtual event will have all of the features of Make it British Live! plus more!

Once you’ve logged into the event platform it will be just like walking through the doors of the real show – with all the features there for you.

Hear inspiring talks on the main stage, attend intimate workshop sessions, chat with the exhibitors in their expo booths, and join us for some fun speed networking.

Streaming live over two days!
