Accessories and footwear show Boutique by Chic is to relaunch as Boutique Manchester and relocate to the city for its October edition.
The premium trade show, which was cancelled in April because of the impending venue switch, will move from the Ricoh Arena in Coventry to Manchester’s Event City. Sister show Chic, the short-order handbags and travel goods event, will remain at the Ricoh Arena but will move into three new halls at the venue.
Organiser M&S Exhibition Services said the relocation would create a clear distinction between the two shows.
The spring 12 edition of Boutique Manchester will run from October 16-18 and the autumn 12 event will be on unconfirmed dates in April.
Brands at Boutique Manchester will include handbag brands Charlotte Reid and Fiorelli, ethical jewellery label Divine Rocks and footwear brands Irregular Choice and Venutti.
Event City, which opened in February, is adjacent to shopping mall The Trafford Centre.
