Coeur Tradeshow Moves to New Location in October
Coeur, the bicoastal accessories and lifestyle show, is moving its Los Angeles show to the Alexandria Ballrooms in downtown LA for its Oct. 12–14 run.
The show will be held at the Mezz Ballroom of the newly renovated event space, where exhibitors will show their collections in a light-filled venue with old Hollywood glamour.
There will be shuttle buses available between the venue, located at 501 S. Spring St., and the Cooper Design Space, where Coeur Los Angeles was held since its launch in 2011.
There will be a cocktail reception for buyers on Oct. 12 featuring drinks by the Cocktail Cook and hors d’oeuvres by chef Josef Ceneno of Baco Mercat, Bar Ama, Orsa & Winston and Ledlow restaurants. Orsa & Winston will also be catering lunch for buyers and guests during Coeur’s three-day run.
The trade show has also begun working with Showroom Exchange /Ready To View, which helps designers and manufacturers manage orders, retail contacts and daily operations.
This season, Coeur is also launching Coeur x Capify in partnership with Capify, a New York–based 13-year-old company that provides working capital to small- and medium-sized businesses. With offices in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia, Capify offers funding up to $1 million through its Merchant Cash Advance and Business Loan programs.
“The fashion industry is an important part of our economy,” said Eric Gunther, Capify director of business development, in a company statement. “My experience in both apparel and finance has always focused around encouraging innovative brands and retailers to grow and achieve success.”
