Drapers hosts a series of bespoke events and awards throughout the year, debating the industry’s hottest topics and celebrating the biggest achievements across the different sectors. Find out more about each of the different events here, and how you can get involved.
The most highly respected awards in fashion retailing are back for 2018 and ready to recognise the top performing and most innovative businesses in fashion.
With more than 800 of fashion's finest in one room, these awards represent the best networking opportunity, and exposure for your company if shortlisted, that you will get this year, all in the luxury surrounding of The Roundhouse in the heart of London.
The Drapers Fashion Forum will look to the future and investigate what the fashion retail landscape will look like in a year, five years or even 10 years: what retailers will be focusing on and investing in;
adapting organisational structures; streamlining supply chain and back-end operations; how the store will function alongside digital platforms; how consumers will be shopping and on what platforms; and, ultimately, how retailers can future-proof their business to survive and thrive.
Drapers Independents Awards celebrate the most influential brands and highly respected independent retailers and reward those businesses that are changing the landscape of fashion. The ceremony provides an unrivalled opportunity to network with independent retailers that are innovating and inspiring as well as the brands that they stock that are really pushing the boundaries and standing out in a highly competitive crowd.
The Drapers Digital Festival 2018 was yet again the world’s largest gathering of fashion ecommerce and digital professionals. Over 600 attendees meet at the festival to learn, celebrate, innovate and shape the future. This year the festival consisted of a day packed with talks, debates, unique live judging sessions, exclusive fringe events and an awards gala. For the first time, the event hosted the Experiential Lounge, a creative space where participants can network and collaborate.
As the only footwear-focused fashion retail event, the Drapers Footwear Awards recognise and celebrate the very best in the industry.
The 2018 awards were not only a fantastic platform to showcase your achievements but also attracted an audience of more than 400 industry heavyweights resulting in the perfect networking opportunity for your business.
