At The Harrogate Convention Centre this September, you’ll find the newest collections from some of the top names in the industry. There will be over 180 exhibitors at the event, and the brands that you’ll see are the ones who will consistently hit the best-sellers lists in bridal. Taking up a colossal floor space over eight halls and three hotels, Harrogate offers the greatest volume of suppliers of any bridal trade show. As well as major industry players, the show is also home to some of bridal’s hottest new names who will be bringing their fresh designs to the mix – giving you the chance to uncover the best styles for 2018 all in one place. Every sector will be represented, including occasionwear, prom, bridesmaid, MOB, menswear, accessories and childrenswear, so it’s vital you attend to see the latest offerings and stay ahead of the game.
One of the greatest things about The Harrogate Bridal Show is its prime location in the beautiful spa town of Harrogate. Located in the centre of the UK, this is the perfect place to meet, and this picturesque location will come alive with celebrations. The exhibition’s home, the Harrogate Convention Centre, is at the very heart of a town packed with great places to eat, drink, shop and relax. Harrogate railway station and Harrogate bus station (both in the town centre) provide transport connections from around the UK, and are both just a short walk from the venue. Leeds Bradford International Airport is just 10 miles (16 km) south-west of Harrogate – and a complimentary bus service to and from the airport is also available making it easy to attend wherever you’re visiting from.
The Harrogate Bridal Show offers unrivalled opportunities for networking and building those all-important business relationships. The event offers relaxed spaces such as the Champagne Bar and the VIP and Bridal Buyer business lounges, where you can meet, chat and network in your own time – and at your own pace – making it the perfect place for forming new partnerships and establishing social relationships.
As well as being an important exhibition in its own right, The Harrogate Bridal Show is also home to the Bridal Buyer Awards and other after-hour events. The unmissable black-tie Awards evening on the Monday night is a celebration like no other, and is a great chance to celebrate with friends in the industry. Because we all love a chance to dress up, let our hair down and have a good catch-up, visitors to The Harrogate Bridal Show will also be able to socialise at the BBSA party on the Sunday night at the Crown Hotel. This annual event is the perfect place to unwind after the first day of the show.
The Harrogate Bridal Show’s organisers have made it easy for you to find the best pieces for your store, and have created an exceptional event that makes the process enjoyable and memorable.
