MODA UK follows world fashion trends from the virtuosos working in fashion today and curates an unforgettable experience that encompasses the entire value chain of apparel. The international trade fair features womenswear, accessories and footwear from the highest pedigree. MODA UK first took to the stage back in 2002 and in those two decades has positioned itself as the chief cross-border sales platform on a major level. It’s also earned itself the title of UK's National Footwear Show with its claim to fame being the largest collection of footwear brands under one roof in the entire country. What can visitors expect when they walk into the exhibition space? There’s a little bit for everyone – ethical fashion, footwear sourcing, contemporary ready-to-wear collections, premium brands, occasionwear and diffusion lines. Fashion brands benefit greatly from exposure at MODA UK, because of its many opportunities to hold meetings with potential buyers.
MODA UK enjoys a busy schedule as it arrives twice per year in Birmingham, UK. Editions run for a total of three days once in early February and once in August. Hyve Group Plc Moda Ltd has a great program planned for professional visitors from 09:30 am in the morning until 18:00 pm in the afternoon with the exception of the third day, which wraps up at 16:00 pm. The trade show is held at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) and is co-located with MODA Accessories, MODA Footwear, MODA Lingery & Swinwear, and MODA Menswear. As all major exhibition centres, The NEC provides visitors and exhibitors with enough public transport options. The Birmingham International Railway Station can be reached on foot. Several bus lines service the centre and there is also a free air-rail link from Birmingham Airport for an extra quick commute.

- “Moda is the key show for our fashion buy, we come every season. We’re part of The Club and really enjoyed the benefits including the convenience, and all the amenities the team offer. Added extras like the Speed Networking are fab, we met some great new brands, and we loved the Selfridges Retail Safari – it was a real eye opener to get insights into how it all works and the networking was really useful.” – Corinne Smith at Logues;
