  • Spend time talking to your customer about what they would like to see in your store
  • Read up on different fashion magazines for upcoming trends

  • Register online for market info
  • Make your market appointments
PACK
  • Re-sale certificate and tax id number
  • Projections, otb and calendar appointments
  • Business cards: keep them with you even during social events
  • Notebook, pens and calculators
  • Order sheets
  • Phone book: you never know who you might have to call when you are far from home

SCHEDULE
  • Start early
  • Use the show directories, mobile app and SHOP THE FLOOR to map out your day. Note the booths and vendors you want to see or with whom you have appointments.
  • Walk row by row, floor by floor. You never know what you may find.
  • Don't be shy. If you see a busy booth, ask what time would be good for you to come back.
  • Network: build a group of market friends that you can have lunch or dinner with and share experiences.
  • Set a goal of visiting 10 new vendors per market.
  • Write your order at the show!  It can be overwhelming to try to do it when you get back home
