The International Fashion & Accessory Trade Fair

1st - 3rd July 2012


The International Fashion & Accessory Fair. 1st - 3rd July 2012 Jaguar Exhibition Centre The Ricoh Arena Coventry. CV6 6GE

July Chic Now Covers Three Halls At The Ricoh Arena We launched the new July format at Chic last year and it was an outstanding success with visitors and exhibitors. The three halls each have different characteristics which makes the buying experience very enjoyable whilst the outstanding restaurant / bar area provides a well appointed and relaxed dining venue without having to leave the exhibition halls. Parking and access are as easy as ever with dedicated car parks just outside the entrance. The arena itself is extremely easy to get to by car (at junction 3 on the M6) or by rail or air via Birmingham International Airport / Railway Station where our free shuttle bus collects visitors at frequent times during the day to make the short journey to / from Chic. Chic, The International Fashion and Accesssory Fair Chic has traditionally been dedicated to the fashion accessory trade event, however the industry has changed dramatically over the last ten years. Now the majority of fashion accessory retailers are clothing boutiques or footwear stores. In fact over 70% of Chic buyers buy clothing or footwear either as their main business activity or as a major part of their product assortment. It is well known that Chic is the show where serious buyers come to spend. Our loyal visitors love the relaxed atmosphere which puts them in the mood to place significant orders. Many do not visit any other fashion shows in the season and therefore spend the majority of their budget at Chic! We look forward to welcoming you to the show and hope that if you are showing at Chic for the first time, that it will be the start of a long and successful relationship that we have shared for over 18 years with so many regular exhibitors who have become our friends. Please call us to discuss anything about the show, there are no silly questions and we are always keen to help in any way we can to make your Chic experience as enjoyable as possible. Kind regards The Chic Team
