Faire Announces Show Dates


As of Friday, July 31, 2020

Faire, an online marketplace focusing on independent retailers, announced dates for its inaugural trade show. The Faire Summer Market will run Aug. 26-27 on faire.com. This online trade show hopes to be a forum where independent retailers can work on orders from independent designers and brands for apparel, accessories, homewares, goods for pets and kids among other categories.

Show producers also are offering a few digital tools that they hope can guide retailers through the virtual trade show. They include data-informed shopping, where retailers can find intelligence on what are the best selling items among consumers in different categories and markets. There’s a shop-planning tool. With this tool, retailers using the Square point-of- sale system, will be able to help the retailer crunch data of what is selling well their stores, which might help guide buying strategies at trade shows. A show statement said that all vendors will offer promotions during the show.
