Celebrating 20 years of Chic in 2014
The UK’s only dedicated national fashion and travel accessory Trade Fair
Chic has been the UK’s only dedicated national fashion accessory and travel goods trade fair since 1994.
To celebrate our 20th Anniversary we are moving back to our original home at The National Motorcycle Museum (opposite the NEC) in January 2014.
The lavishly appointed venue has been a constant topic of discussion with visitors and exhibitors alike since we reluctantly re-located in 2005 due to a fire at the venue shortly before our show. It has now been totally rebuilt to an even higher specification offering a very pleasant buying environment with free parking by the entrance.
Access could not be more convenient… We are located directly opposite the entrance to the NEC and a few minutes by taxi from Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station.
We have listened to our visitors and exhibitors and gone ‘Back to Basics’
Over recent years – like other trade fairs – we have tried lots of different ideas like catwalks, celebrities, workshops, guest speakers etc. to attract buyers during the economic downturn.
We have realised that Chic buyers prefer a traditional trade fair where you can see everything easily in a relaxed and friendly environment, where you can buy a broad selection of established quality brands plus a selection of emerging and international collections, without having to trawl endless halls of products that you do not sell, in search of the ones you do!
If you sell handbags, jewellery, travel goods, umbrellas and fashion accessories, that is all you will see at Chic, so every stand will be full of just what you and your customers need… and nothing more!
The ‘back to basics’ Chic concept is a return to our core principals of providing a relaxed and friendly ‘showroom-style’ trade fair in a great location with lots of free parking right outside the door, a luxurious venue which you can get round easily in a day, and as always it’s the fashion event where all the suppliers sell from stock so you can buy what you want, when you need it... right at the start of your retail selling season.
