Why Attend the Breakout Fashionistas Fashion & Apparel Global Market Access Boot camp 2020?

If you are an ambitious ready-to-export SME; interested in learning how to access the UK market, then this event is for you. It is the perfect opportunity for you to build on your understanding of the level of product adaptation required to meet importer-mandated demands in UK ma Learn how to master UK product standards, regulations, language and cultural issues, service expectations, local competition, income-levels and pricing. In this regard, get the practical know-how on:

Product Design Adaptation;

Product Brand Name Adaptation;

Product Quality Adaptation; and

Trade Finance.

The Business Opportunity

In 2018 the British Council revealed that the UK fashion industry was worth £32 billion to the UK economy. The industry has over 890,000 jobs supported across the industry, comparing fairly to the financial sector. Furthermore, according to Statista the apparel and footwear market in the UK has been growing steadily over the last seven years. In 2019 the market value was set to rise to €63.6 billion. In addition to the market value, the annual expenditure on clothing, based on sales volume, has also seen a gradual increase, reaching £58.3 billion in 2018. The majority of clothing purchases are reported as coming from women in search of outwear garments, which account for nearly double that of men’s outerwear purchasing.

Statista also reports that the total annual import value of apparel and clothing accessories from EU and non-EU countries into the UK from 2008 to 2017 has been growing. In 2017, approximately £20 billion worth of apparel and clothing accessories were imported into the UK, around six billion of which came from EU member countries. The above data in combination with the UK-Africa Duty-Free-Quota-Free trade preferences, which cater for, among other sectors, the Fashion & Apparel industry, present an excellent business opportunity, for exporting to the UK.

The Challenge

In practice, however, many African fashion & Apparel SMEs have an incredibly tough time accessing the UK market.Product Adaptation is cited as the biggest challenge, which in turn is a function of two very important elements:

  1. Technical Barriers –standards, quality, regulations, innovation and sustainability;
  2. Non-Technical Barriers – culture, lifestyle, trends, branding, marketing;
  3. Access to Finance – Trade Finance and other innovative financing options.
The Breakout Fashionistas Fashion & Apparel Global Market Access Boot camp 2020 is, therefore, a highly interactive event where you can gather UK market intelligence to help your company develop strategies for bankable export plans.  In addition, this event presents a huge opportunity to network with industry decision-makers, experts and fashion houses.

Who Should Attend?

  • Fashion, Textile and Apparel SMEs;
  • Investment and Export Agencies;
  • Trade Finance Organisations;
  • International Buyers;
  • Manufacturers;
  • Industry Experts & Coaches

Tickets are currently available from £1000 + VAT. Join us in London on 11th April 2020 and be part of the Global Fashion Trade
