The fashion trade fair is making its physical comeback in NYC at the end of July, when it will welcome 67 international and domestic companies to its first in-person event since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Florentine trade fairs Uomo, Filati and Bimbo wrapped up on Friday, following what was, according to organisers, a better-than-expected run. For most exhibitors, this physical edition was all about meeting up again.
On Wednesday, the Florentine show opened its 100th edition, hosting nearly 400 exhibitors with a cheerful mood, veined with the attending menswear professionals’ excitement at finally getting together again.
Pitti, the giant Florentine menswear salon, will host this year’s LVMH Prize finalists with a major installation in this summer’s reschedule edition, amid fresh signs of momentum at the giant trade show.
From 25 to 27 June, during Paris Fashion Week Men's, the Tranoï trade show will run at the Palais de Tokyo. The event will feature 22 brands presenting their latest menswear offerings and women's pre-collections.
Florence-based trade show Pitti Uomo will be one of the first to relaunch its physical show, from June 30 to July 2, albeit in a reduced format and with safety measures. It expects up to 8,000 buyers and over 300 brands.
Originally planned for August, the trade shows have been postponed to fall, with the Portland edition now set to run September 29 through 30, while the Boston event will take place October 4 through 5.
Joor is in expansion mode. The online wholesale management platform said its virtual show support facility Joor Passport is continuing to grow with new partnerships including the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair.
As Tranoï and the French Fashion Federation join forces, and Who’s Next and Mode & Objet confirm their dates, French trade shows are preparing their return, after cancelling several editions due to the pandemic.
