Buyer attendance was up 18.6% year-on-year at the spring 16 edition of London trade show Pure, organisers have said.
The three-day event at Olympia shook off the chaos caused by road closures for the Ride London cycling event on its opening day (Sunday August 2), seeing buyers from Asos.com, Debenhams, Harrods, Hoopers, John Lewis and House of Fraser, among others.
It has also reported that international visitor numbers were up 14% on the same season last year.
The next edition of Pure will take place February 14-16 at Olympia London.
Pure is owned by Top Right Group, which also owns Drapers.
