French fashion trade show Who's Next has decided to push back the date of its next summer edition, to betteraccommodated its exhibitors and buyers.
Who's Next recently carried out a survey among its attendees, which focused on the choice of dates for its spring/summer trade show. For the past three years, Who's Next has held its spring/summer edition in Paris on the first weekend of July.
However, more than 60 percent of exhibitors and 73 percent of buyers who participated in the survey indicated that the first weekend of July was not a convenient date. The majority voted for Who's Next return trade show to take place in September, rather than July which led to the organizers of the event deciding to push back the date of its spring/summer trade show.
Who's Next spring-summer edition will now be taking place on the first weekend of September, running from Friday 4 to Monday 7, 2015 at the Porte de Versailles, Paris and coinciding with other Parisian events such as Maison & Objet.
The change of dates follows a recent trend among trade shows who have been shifting dates as well as location to ensure optimum visitor attendance. However some of the changes made, such as Bread & Butter's decision to hold its upcoming winter edition at an earlier date in Barcelona have not been well received in the industry, which led the trade fair founder Karl-Heinz-Müller cancelling the event in favour of remaining in Berlin and holding the event at the same time as the cities other trade shows.
