Eurovet, a leading trade show organiser for the lingerie, hosiery and swimwear sectors, has become the latest sponsor of the 2013 UK Lingerie Awards, in association with Fashion Forms.
Lingerie Insight is pleased to announce that Eurovet’s January show, Salon International de la Lingerie, will sponsor the Lingerie Brand of the Year category, the most sought after accolade of the event.
Meanwhile, the organiser’s summer show, Mode City, will sponsor the Swimwear Brand of the Year category.
Séverine Marchesi, director for both Salon International and Mode City shows commented: "It is a great pleasure to support the incredible talent in the categories of lingerie and swimwear, as many of these brands already show a support in choosing the Eurovet shows to showcase their collections each season.”
“We want to be able to give back to brands and retailers who continue to support us throughout the years, which we’re hoping to do by offering free trips to Paris to attend the shows."
As part of their sponsorship, Eurovet will offer two retailers the chance to win a round trip to Paris to attend the two shows, which will run from January 25-27 2014, and July 5-7 2014, respectively.
The competition will take place at the UK Lingerie Awards, where buyers and retailers will be asked to drop their business cards in a hat for a chance to win the two trips.
The lucky winner will receive Eurostar tickets from London to Paris, a one-night stay in a Parisian hotel and a VIP pass with dedicated access to the fashion shows and to trends forums.
Marianne Trotta, Lingerie Insight and UK Lingerie Awards commercial manager said of the sponsorship: "We’re beyond delighted to have Salon International de la Lingerie and Mode City as partners of the 2013 UK Lingerie Awards.
“Particularly exciting is their offer to give out two paid trips to attend the January and July shows which we hope will see buyers enjoying both what the shows and Paris have of best to offer. Make sure you bring your business cards on the night and you could be off on a paid trip to Paris."
The UK Lingerie Awards will take place on December 4 at the Freemasons’ Hall, in the heart of Covent Garden. Over 500 of the industry’s most important professionals, celebrities and for the first time ever, the lingerie-loving public, will rub shoulders on the night.
