Managing Director of the LondonEdge series, Carole Hunter said the following:
“Show #40?! What an unbelievable journey! 20 years in this business has taught me so much. Since the conception of LondonEdge in 2000, we’ve witnessed four UK Prime Ministers, three Popes, (at least) two worldwide recessions, four US Presidents, five Olympic Games, the global digital revolution, internet dating, the world dominance of the smartphone & countless other amazing/devastating events in equal measure. We’ve also welcomed many, many thousands of buyers, 2000 exhibitors & supported 10’s of thousands of lifestyle & alternative fashion businesses to fly high! These shows bring a band of amazing exhibitors including the likes of KOI Footwear, Daisy Street and Joe Brown while year 21 will deliver more exciting plans, expansion and more!”
