For the first time this season, the order show Supreme Body&Beach will start on a Friday, February 21st 2020 marks the kickoff of the order season for the bodywear industry. The event’s organizers have developed new floor space on the second level of event venue MTC, World of Fashion, to accommodate the increase in domestic and international exhibitors who show more than 450 collections of the autumn and winter season 2020.
With a new peal in international participants, Germany’s largest order platform at the successful Munich location asserts its position as the segment’s leading European trade event.
Presenting all relevant brands and manufacturers in the lingerie, beachwear and homewear segments at one key event, Supreme Body&Beach offers buyers and exhibitors a perfect order environment and an international networking platform.
Determined to strengthen and evolve this position, the team at The Supreme Group continues to improve their offering with new initiatives. This season's highlights include the new fashion shows featuring Madison Models Munich as well as expert presentations by the leading European segment trade consultants at Bodywear Consulting.
“Our order platform Supreme Body&Beach has been growing and evolving over the past years and seasons,” says Aline Müller-Schade, member of The Supreme Group’s executive board. “The increased demand for exhibition space from domestic, European and overseas fashion labels is proof of this. We are excited to receive this kind of positive feedback. It pushes us to continue evolving our trade show in cooperation with all stakeholders in order to create an event that offers outstanding experiences and a great environment for business."
“FRIDAYS FOR …” – early start proves successful; industry demonstrates eco-consciousness.
Following the successful example of The Supreme Group’s other trade events, Supreme Body&Beach will also switch to the new schedule, with Friday as the opening day.
“Around the world, people start 'Fridays for' movements to push their issues. Our decision to kick off the order season on a Friday was driven by the desire to meet the needs of exhibitors and visitors and make our event a bigger success for everyone. Our claim is also an expression of the increased awareness for sustainability issues we are witnessing around us. Our nod to the FFF movement is a commitment to more sustainability, a big topic for our industry, our exhibitors and The Supreme Group. Besides the latest trends, Supreme Body&Beach will introduce #newfabrics and #cleanbeach as new developments,” Ms. Müller-Schade adds.
