The organisers of The Off-Price Show are to launch a new marketplace section within the next event in March for buyers wishing to meet up and coming and newer fashion suppliers.

The new area, called The Village, will give space to a selection of first-time exhibitors, showing a wide variety of clothing, jewellery, bags, fashion essentials, shoes and fair trade and organic products.

There will also be a special clinic answering enquiries from newer smaller retailers who want tips on buying, e-tailing, training and other store and online related issues.

The Off-Price Show features current and past season stock from brands, producers, wholesalers and importers, and features street wear, casual wear, outerwear, knitwear, formal wear, denim, party wear, lingerie, nightwear, underwear, hosiery, work wear and a wide range of accessories including footwear. The next event takes place at London's Olympia on 13-14 March 2011.
