The COVID-19 pandemic has driven yet another trade show to cancellation!
LondonEdge, a UK-based trade fair with focus on youth, lifestyle and subculture fashion, will no longer be hosting its show to be held on 6-7 September at Islington’s Business Design Centre, nor will it go ahead with the VegasEdge, the Las Vegas edition stipulated for 18-19 August.
The shows scheduled for February, August and September 2021 are currently still planned to go ahead.
As the rest of the world moves towards a more digital approach, the organisers of the show have a pre-existing platform – LondonEdge Now, a virtual marketplace for buyers to view, source and order collections in the absence of a live event.
Anybody can register on the multi-brand, wholesale sourcing platform and source the collections they would have otherwise viewed at the show.
Managing Director of LondonEdge, Carole Hunter, speaking on the cancellation of the show, said “As the world is beginning to move forward positively, excitement and the same positive perspective applies to all at LondonEdge as we move towards 2021 with the determination to approach things anew and deliver fresh ideas at our next shows at a time when we can celebrate meeting again.”
