Tradeshow Support – How to show

UKFT prides itself on its impartiality and we visit most of the international tradeshows and showrooms for fashion and textiles each year. This means we can give you up-to-date knowledge on the show and showroom scene.

We normally cover:

We can talk to members about tradeshow options by appointment at our central London offices or by phone. We will tell you which shows could work best for your business size and collection. We can explain whether shows are suitable for you, how they work, how to visit (and what you need to do to get in) and how to apply for vetting if you decide to show.


The “UKFT Guide to Exhibiting at International Tradeshows” explains how tradeshows and showrooms work. When you are ready to show, we offer one-to-one meetings to talk about specific tradeshows and help you to visit or apply. Our Practical Exporting seminar explains the export basics that you will need to know before you show. Go to our events section to view the latest seminar programme and dates.
