With a hugely successful March/April 2019 event in the stunning Messe Essen exhibition venue, where more than 425 bridal, occasion wear, menswear, children's and accessories labels unveiled their new collections for the first time, show organisers United Fairs have been urged to confirm dates for next year so that exhibitors and retailers alike can plan their schedules early.

Event Director Siegrid Hampsink has today announced that Saturday 4 April to Monday 6 April 2020 will see more than 425 collections in the spotlight in northern Europe's largest and most prestigious industry exposition where retailers from more than 45 countries will make their buying decisions, choosing from some of the finest international labels as well as the speciality brands showing a fresh and adventurous approach to design.

Key to the event's premier position on the buying calendar are the carefully-planned dates, designed to allow for early ordering and the resulting early delivery cycles which means new product will be available in store at the ideal time of the year to maximise of consumer interest.

The exhibition's vibrant website https://europeanbridalweek.com/ will bring full information about the 2020 show with regular updates on labels and special show news and planned editions of the much talked-about Bridal Biz magazine will again provide brand and trend insight.

A stunning 430 labels from 100 of the world’s driving forces in bridal made European Bridal Week the largest industry buying event in Northern Europe – by a long long way. At Messe Essen over the weekend buyers from more than 40 countries turned out to welcome the sparkling new collections from some of the most important names in the business – in bridal and occasionwear, mother-of-the-bride, menswear and accessories.

The halls were buzzing, the atmosphere was electric, the beat was fast and the catwalk shows presented in the purpose-built theatre proved to be a magnet for retailers. Model after model strode down the stage making a powerful statement about 2020 design direction with brands such as Iceberg-Selestia, Impero Couture, Lilly, Oksana Mukha, Victoria & Vincent and Svetlana Zaitseva strutting their wow-factor stuff to rapturous applause. Sincerity, Sweetheart and Lillian West, always claiming attention at Essen, delighted retailers with their mix of cool classics, sensuous silhouettes and the very best interpretations of boho.

Event Director Siegrid Hampsink had high expectations for this, the fifth edition of European Bridal Week, but even she was surprised – and no doubt thrilled – with the visitor numbers – up more than 15% year on year. “Our pre-registration data was a pretty good indicator that retailers were geared up for a big buying experience,” she said, “but from the minute the doors opened to the show, the flow of visitors never slowed down. Early analyse shows that the biggest growth area came from within Germany, then Austria, and Scandinavia and according to exhibitors the value of orders was also on the increase. This paints a wonderfully optimistic picture of the industry which seems to be on steadier ground now than in recent years.

European Bridal Week delivered what the bridal business wants – quality, choice and a real sense of style. It was three glorious days of design statements, not only from the leading international labels, but from the new, young talents standing on the brink of the big time. And that is what our industry is all about.
