Following the reintroduction of further Covid-19 restrictions, which make it unlikely that live events will be permitted before April 2021, Clarion Events has confirmed that January’s Top Drawer will be held digitally.
“While we had hoped we could deliver a safe and successful event for the community, we have also been busy planning for such an eventuality and can confirm that the SS21 editionwill now take place as a virtual event,” stated show director, Alejandra Campos. “Once more, our digital platform – Top Drawer On Demand – will allow the retail community to come together and access new opportunities to connect and trade.
She highlighted that the digital programme will provide UK and overseas buyers with easy access to new products, as well as expert advice and trend forecasting, along with live product launch sessions and enhanced networking tools.
Alejandra continued: “As ever, we are incredibly thankful for the support and feedback we have had from our exhibiting brands and our audience of buyers and designers. We look forward to welcoming them back to On Demand at the start of next year, where they can continue to discover new products and brands, connect with both new and prospective suppliers, and access invaluable industry insight.”
Further information on Top Drawer On Demand SS21 will be announced in the coming weeks.
