“There’s a great cross section of retailers from specialty to independent to department stores. So we get to see a lot of customers in a short period of time . . . We want to make sure all the best retailers all over the country get a chance to see and view us. We think this is a great vehicle to do that.”
- Noel Hord, CEO & President, Donald J Pliner
“The most exciting things I discovered were the leading brands and trends in America. As a European exhibitor, it’s very interesting to test how your collection works in the show. The advertising (opportunities) you offer is different from the other shows. Take advantage of SHOP THE FLOOR, it’s a tool that completes the show experience.”
- Paola Dezi, Marketing Director, Coolway
“The best thing about FN PLATFORM is seeing all the collections, the energy from the excitement of newness, the buyer and sales community coming together. Three days at FN PLATFORM compensates for weeks of market in NYC. I’ll take three straight days in Vegas and knock an entire season out in one shot.”
- Virginia Wong, Lead Merchant Shoes & Accessories, Victoria's Secret
