Find new fashion suppliers online at November’s free Retaissance Live event

Independent retailers and brands are invited to take part in a free virtual networking event this November hosted by B2B fashion platform Retaissance. Supported by the Enterprise Europe Network, Retaissance Live will see brands and buyers from across the continent meeting online to discuss collaboration opportunities.

The event will include Meet the Buyer sessions taking place on Tuesday 9 November 2021, with retailers selecting brands they’d like to meet before the end of October. For brands, there will also be a special half-day workshop session to prepare for the event on Wednesday 3 November 2021, with speakers from Retaissance and NuORDER.

The first Retaissance Live took place last year and was attended by a range of brands and designers from across Europe. Those already signed up for this year’s event include A  LINE, Fassbender, AMS Pure, Aldo Martins, Angelika Jozefczyk, Barrus London, J Label, Arena Martínez, Joyce and Girls, COSEL and David Koma.

Registration for the 2021 event is now open and attendance is free of charge for both retail buyers and fashion brands.

Cathie Osborne, founder and owner of Retaissance, comments: “We’re very excited to launch our second live event and have already secured a varied selection of buyers on board from previous success in 2020, and new partners joining to support the recovering retail sector. With their support, we’ve been able to build a roster that represents the broad, diverse range of industries that makeup retail across Europe. Last year during the pandemic, hundreds of thousands of pounds of deals were made. We want to help continue that growth of revenue and give new brands the opportunity to reach out to new markets.

“This will be a brilliant opportunity for independent brands to create new sales opportunities, gather product feedback, network and approach new markets. We’ve had a lot of interest in the event so far, so be sure to get in touch and book your free ticket to secure your meetings.”
