After securing a deal worth more than USD$40k between Two Deck’s US footwear brand and a major on-line retailer in China, exhibitor, Mike Todd of Two Deck said: "The Hub is a strategic venue to negotiate and close deals of this nature, a single place in the APAC region to meet high value customers which is key to growing business across this vast region."

Another exhibitor, Kevin Tallon of newly launched brand Capitale Nord said: “We came to the HUB because we felt that the buyers attending are professional, from the right kind of stores and can appreciate a brand like ours. The HUB’s position and the international experience of the HUB organisers also help to set the right 'vibe' for presenting a new range. We had great feed back and interest from key buyers, such as American Rag in Shanghai plus D-mop, and Lane Crawford from Hong Kong.”

Buyer Yu Ma-tou of The Fashion Door in Guangzhou was also happy with his visit: "The HUB is a great platform for us to find designer brands that have style and originality."

“The Hub is a refreshing new vision of a trade show much needed in this part of Asia. It was great to have over 90 edited international brands under one roof in a relaxed businesslike environment. Fei stock brands from Topshop to Victoria Beckham and the portfolio of high fashion to high street brands at The Hub represented our multi brand retail concept well.” - reported Ray Lee of Fei Space and Fei Look.

Co-founder Richard Hobbs added: “We continue to develop and refine The HUB format to be even more relevant to what buyers are looking for in the fast evolving fashion retail and distribution markets in this part of the world. The results of this 4th edition have vindicated our early vision that building a platform where great brands and designers can connect with discerning retailers and distributors was needed and would be a success.”
