UBM is making big changes to its New York City trade show lineup for 2018. The fashion trade show company is launching in June a pre-collections show with Coterie and its first dual-gender fashion trade show with Project in July. These changes are intended to create new and more efficient business opportunities for both brands and retailers.
UBM is making these changes in partnership with Accessories Council and follows a series of consultations with customers and industry influencers. With the new changes, the pre-collections show with Coterie, Fame, Moda, AccessoriesTheShow and Pooltradeshow will be held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City from June 10 through 12 and the dual-gender show will be held with Project Womens, Fame, Moda, AccessoriesTheShow, Project, MRket and Children’s Club from July 22 through 24.
The women’s wear show will continue to be held in February and September, and the January 2018 men’s and women’s market weeks will continue to run separately, with women’s running from January 7 through 9 and men’s from January 21 through 23.
UBM is the global leader in fashion trade shows and has been seeing firsthand the dramatic changes in the retail landscape, from the growth of e-commerce and fast fashion and changes in consumer buying patterns to the importance of delivering lifestyles and experiences.
