The Parisian fair is opening a new space in Moda City with music, panel discussions and special sale actions to attract both professional and end consumers. Besides, the company has acquired event planning agency Like That.
Lingerie and intimate trade shows in Paris reinvent themselves. Eurovet’s Unique by Mode City, which took place last weekend in the French capital, is gearing up for the upcoming fair edition in July 2019. During its next event, the show is considering to increase its offer with a space specifically aimed at end consumers.
Unique by Moda City will hold within its premises Unique Summer Camp, an open-to-the-public space filled with music, panel discussions, pop up stores and special sale actions. In fact, Eurovet, the show’s owner, had already flirted with final customers with the Absolute Summer programme, but it goes one step beyond now, as explained by the group’s president, Marie-Laure Bellon, to Fashionnetwork.
Bellon says that the new end-consumer platform aims to break existing barriers between professionals and customers in trade shows. Eurovet expects that around 25.000 visitants will join Unique’s Summer Camp debut in 2019.
