Organisers of the Off-Price Show reported very brisk trading and a mood of confidence over the two days of the London Spring edition (11th-12th March), with a number of new highs. Visitor levels were up 8.8% over last March, despite some previous uncertainty about travel arrangements due to the recent Transport for London Tube changes. There was a record level of international visitors to the event, Also announced was the move of the event to the new West Hall at Olympia, and by the end of the show, 71% of the new space had been sold out to existing exhibitors.
“Great show - we’re delighted the show was really busy and vibrant” said IDEX Group’s Buzz Carter “The heavy demand for space in the new hall is a clear signal that the industry of both buyers and exhibitors enjoyed a particularly strong show over the weekend. The high numbers of international buyers and exhibitors further confirms Off-Price Show’s popularity across the globe.”
The next Off-Price Show in London event takes place on September 23rd-24th 2012 in Olympia’s new West Hall.
