Tradegood Trend Boutique Grand Opening in NYC
Upgrading the online sourcing experience with actual samples
in a social setting
New York and Hong Kong, Mar 2, 2015 -Tradegood, the innovative sourcing community developed by Intertek that connects responsible buyers with trusted suppliers, launched its first fashion showroom —Tradegood Trend Boutique — in New York City, USA, on Feb 16, 2015.
The Tradegood Trend Boutique is a new fashion showroom where buyers, private label manufacturers, and brand holders can select the best on-trend products at below-market prices. Here, buyers can shop for products from a wide range of trusted suppliers from global markets all year round, with no need to wait until market weeks to visit this permanent location.
Jointly organized with Intertek USA, the grand opening of the Trend Boutique attracted some 50 buyer representatives to visit the new venue situated in New York’s fashion production and design center, a focal point for many professional buyers and exhibitors, in a highly convenient location.
Attending buyers applauded the fact that only on-trend samples carefully selected by fashion experts from Tradegood-verified suppliers are showcased in the Trend Boutique, and that they can get to buy directly at factory prices, thus saving time and money in trend research and factory sourcing. At the Trend Boutique, buyers can enjoy a personal consultation service that provides help in identifying the latest trends and the right factories. This is a new channel enabling US buyers to work directly with quality factories, with complete transparency of supplier information, including compliance and capabilities. Buyers can start sourcing by inspecting the actual physical samples instead of sieving through the massive array of virtual product photos available online. The concept behind the Trend Boutique has been enthusiastically welcomed by stakeholders in the fashion business.
More exciting events will be held at the Trend Boutique in the coming months. From Mar 24 to 25, the first “Factory Showcase” debuts, enabling buyers to see a show-reel of factory samples arranged according to different themes and to get to talk with the suppliers face to face. And on Mar 25, there will be a CSR Happy Hour event co-hosted by Intertek Ethical Sourcing Forum (ESF) and Tradegood.
Those who would like to experience this new concept in sourcing at the Trend Boutique, are cordially invited to make an appointment by filling in the form. For more information, please visit http://www.tradegood.com/en/trend-boutique.
With the launch of Tradegood Trend Boutique, Tradegood is bringing responsible buyers and trusted suppliers much closer to each other, helping to streamline the supply chain while adding transparency. Tradegood will continue to upgrade its services to deliver first-rate customer service to our members while, at the same time, opening up new opportunities for [the] Intertek Group.
Buyers visit Tradegood Trend Boutique and discuss how the service can help them find the right suppliers efficiently.
