There’s only a week and a half left until the UK’s biggest buying dates. From 13 – 15 February, Pure London in Olympia and Pure Spirit in Earls Court are bringing more brands, catwalks, seminars and features than ever. With so much on offer, and with free shuttle buses running between the two venues every few minutes, make sure to plan in at least two days to your diary to take it all in.
Registering for your free tickets to attend both shows is quick and easy at http://www.exporeg.co.uk/visit/sites/emap/pure/feb11/vis/reg.asp?PC=ebuzz – and you’ll save yourself £20 on the door.
Here’s how we recommend starting off the show to make the most of it.
On Day 1, head to Earls Court for Pure Spirit, kicking off your day at the buyers’ survival breakfast. Here you can enjoy a tasty complimentary breakfast of bacon baguettes, pastries, tea and coffee. Plus, catch a glimpse of Olly Murs on stage; pick up a free event guide and bespoke Spirit shopper bag; and take advantage of a number of exclusive offers from media partners RWD and Drapers.
At 11am, experience the Next Generation designers and Best of British brands on the catwalk at Earls Court, before heading to Pure London for midday to see leading trend forecaster, WGSN, translate their exclusive insights into a live catwalk.
Pure is your oyster, and to sum up, there’ll be:
1,100+ brands showing across the two venues
