Can you give some tips for those exhibiting for the first time in Paris and specifically at Who's Next?
Make sure you communicate your presence at Who’s Next - let your community know that you’ll be exhibiting, and send invitations to your buyers and potential clients.
Next, make sure you’re prepared with all the sales tools you’ll need during the event: lookbooks, catalogues, order books, price lists in major currencies, margin rates, commission rates, business cards and your commercial pitch. In terms of merchandising, be sure to carefully select the pieces that best represent not only your brand image and story, but also the pieces that will appeal to the French market. Personalise your stand so that buyers can understand your brand straight away.
Take advantage of all the networking opportunities at the event: speak with other brands, participate in talks and workshops, attend parties and after work events. All of this and much more can be found on our WSN Community by Swapcard app.
