You will find emerging brands, smaller designers, and those who have proven themselves over a couple of seasons. That is what you want to find. And that they have a small opening minimum order, for your shop. You are taking a risk but if you like what you see for your customer then buy it. You are a wholesale rep, or small showroom. Should you exhibit your collections?
If the brands you are representing can support your attendance to exhibit their samples at the shows then YES.
If the brands are new, and no one has heard of them you are going to have to work double-time to get people to come to your booth and take notice. How will you do this? You have to be an award winning sales person.
But I would sometimes work the Chicago trade shows and have a bad show due to cold weather January in Chicago is exactly as it seems-- January in Chicago. Plus, the collections I sold were being represented in NYC and that is where the better stores attend trade shows. Because I repped emerging brands I knew who my stores were even though they never found my designers in NYC at the shows. They took appointments with me in person in their stores which I made sure to do before they exhausted their open to buy.
I was an excellent showroom and a superb sales rep for my designers. But I had to try and fail a bunch of times. I would instead go direct to the top stores in Denver, Minneapolis, versus sitting pretty waiting in the Chicago Apparel Mart. But until we can all fix the industry, this is how mostly goods are bought and sold.
