Event description

Description

Join the Department for International Trade (DIT) on a Fashion Trade Mission to Germany and showcase your products to major German buyers, agents and press during Düsseldorf Market Week, one of the most important buying events in Europe’s fashion calendar.


Why participate?

This three-day exhibition at a centrally located showroom is an ideal opportunity for delegates to present their collections to key industry players and some of Germany’s leading e-marketplaces as part of Düsseldorf’s bi-annual fashion trade event, which draws buyers from all over Germany to its two major tradeshows, 800+ permanent showrooms and high profile industry events.

Delegates will also be able meet and hear from e-buyers on how to access the German market via online channels.

The Opportunity

  • Germany is the largest market in the EU and the leading European country for fashion sales with over €64.5 billion in sector turnover and 20% of Europe’s fashion market share.
  • Düsseldorf offers an unparalleled order platform in Europe, with its GALLERY and Supreme fashion trade fairs, ordering centres Halls 29 & 30, the Düsseldorf Fashion House and 800+ showrooms. Often overshadowed by the earlier Berlin Fashion Week, Düsseldorf is where more actual ordering takes place.
  • Germany is home to a thriving and diverse retail landscape: a variety of department and multi-brand stores, world-renowned concept stores and a strong e-commerce offer all give the country’s 82 million consumers a rich shopping experience and plenty of choice.
  • This mission is being supported and co-organised by FashionNet, the umbrella organisation behind Düsseldorf’s many Market Week events, with strong links to key industry players including buyers, agents, press, influencers and more.
