The Schoolwear Show Lowdown

CWB Reviews The Schoolwear Show, which took place at Cranmore Park, Solihull in October.

This years' Schoolwear Show played host to 44 exhibitors and attracted over 800 visitors, including buyers from Canada and Germany. Feedback from suppliers at the show was positive too, with many reporting an equally good number of new enquiries, as well as seeing existing customers.

Back to School footwear brand Pod, which was taken on by design and development company Aegis Shoes Ltd in 2008, returned to Cranmore Park this year and chose the Schoolwear Show as its exhibition of choice for seeing existing BTS customers and also those reinstating their relationship with the brand. This year Pod returned to the show and CWB caught up with the brand...

"As last year was the first time we exhibited at the show we were unsure of what to expect, however, there seemed to be a very positive mood, "says the brand's marketing manager, Amy Richardson. "The general consensus from customers was that despite the present economic situation, there is still a strong demand for quality footwear, with many of our customers topping up their stock throughout the season due to high sales."

The Pod sales team are now making appointments to show the Pod Back to School shoe collection. If you are a retailer and would like to arrange a visit to view the new collection please contact the Pod Sales Office or one of our regional sales representatives.
