What our exhibitors say

 

  • “We feel it's really important to be here to catch new accounts and make sure we see as many of our current customers as possible… A real highlight already was the first day, we had non-stop customers from 10 am to 3.30 pm and we picked up new accounts on top of our current customers which was a really good, especially as it was unexpected!”
    Kenny Sterling
    Bugatti Shoes, Exhibitor AW19
  • “We see all of our key accounts here - our biggest market is the UK and Moda has a great location because it's so central and attracts retailers from all over the country, and from Ireland which really makes it stand out. We've been exhibiting here since the show began!”
    Maureen
    Pomodoro, Exhibitor AW19
  • “This is our first year and we've had a steady influx of people and really good feedback on the collection which has been really positive. It's really good to be here and meet retailers face to face and get direct feedback from them, as well as great brand exposure. We've met lots of new potential customers as well, we've had orders and it was really nice seeing our existing customers to show them what's coming and what we're planning.”
    Pretty Lavish, Exhibitor AW19

Hear from the buyers

  • “Since the start, I’ve never missed a Moda. When I come here, I see all my agents and it’s a nice experience to come to Moda. It’s easy, there’s access to it and then when you get inside the show, there’s always a nice buzz about it. The brands are here that I want to buy from as well.”
    Martha Fraser
    Martha V Boutique, VIP Buyer AW19
  • “Moda’s a good networking opportunity, it’s a place to do business. There’s no distractions here like we have in the office and you’ve got everyone in one place, so you can go between suppliers and see how their collections are going to sit against each other in store… I probably spend nearly 100% of my budget at Moda, we can spend a five-figure sum here, and that literally means it’s all done for the season in one place in comfort and privacy.”
    Catherine Lockerbie
    The Care Shop Dumfries, Moda Hosted Buyer AW19
  • “Moda’s a nice open show; I can walk down the aisles and say, “that looks nice” and there’s nothing stopping me from hopping on a stand and having a look. That’s how I find new brands and I find that really helpful.”
    Lynn Clark
    Finale Shoes, Moda VIP Buyer AW19
