Scoop round up: Brands remain split on dual venues

Day two at Scoop saw buyers from across the UK writing orders, but varying attendance numbers between the trade show’s two venues led to some concern from exhibitors.

A number of exhibitors showing at auctioneer Phillips’ headquarters in Howick Place, Victoria, said the venue felt much quieter than the Saatchi Gallery, on King’s Road, Chelsea.

Amanda Osborne, director of agency Brand Studio, which represents premium womenswear label Turnover, said the day’s sales at Phillips’ headquarters had been “very disappointing”.

“In our first season at the Saatchi Gallery, we were really busy and really happy with it. There’s fewer buyers here for sure” she added.

At the Saatchi Gallery Bernshaw director Alex Bernstein said the venue was a major draw for buyers. “This show is unique – the location is great and it works so well here.”

He added: “The dates are getting earlier, but we’ve adapted to it. It’s always hard to get the right dates in the summer, with buyers being on holiday.”
