"The quality of buyers is second to none, the location is ideal and the level of service from the organisers has been exceptional."
Ipshita Chatterjee, designer and owner, Minor Edition
"We are an exclusive brand and for us it's important to meet buyers face-to-face to see if the store is right for our label. Being at Bubble is really valuable in making sure our brand is stocked in the right stores. We've placed lots of orders with both new and repeat business, and have had interest from buyers all over the world. From Italy to Istanbul to Oman, the show is really great for getting your brand out there."
Melanie Salisbury, Rock 'n' Regal
"This is our third time at the show. It's a big investment to exhibit at any show but Bubble is worth it. We pick up new business and the level of exposure to both the UK and the European market is second to none. As we don't hold our collections in the UK, it gives our current customers the opportunity to come and see us and the product."
Jacqueline Winfield-Reed, UK agent, Dot
"As a British brand we just have to show at Bubble. The calibre of visitors is fantastic from Harvey Nichols to great independents. I think the show is becoming more international, attracting buyers from all over the world. We've opened new accounts abroad. I couldn't recommend Bubble enough. If you're a childrenswear label then you have to be at Bubble."
Emily Cohen, director, Sunuva
"Bubble is great for finding new and unusual brands in the market and also great homegrown British labels. The seminars are a great complement to the show too."
Lisa Parkinson, The Children's Shoe Company
"We are an online business and have come all the way from Holland. As a new business this is the first fair we've been to and we've found lots of brands that we would never have seen if it wasn't for the show. I would definitely recommend Bubble, especially for new businesses."
Tuyet Nguyen, owner, Little Mii
"There is so much brand choice all under one roof. It's not too big where I am swamped with brands, yet it's big enough to inspire whilst keeping that personal feel, which I like."
Suzanne Kirby, proprietor, Ragamuffin
"In our first few years of buying we travelled to Birmingham, Harrogate and many more places until we came across Bubble London. This year we placed most of our S/S 13 orders at Bubble and were thrilled to see how the show is growing."
Vonda Norma, partner and buyer Felix & Lily's
The next edition of Bubble London will present the new season's autumn/winter 2013 collections on the 27-28 January 2013.
