Retaissance Live is set to be attended by buyers representing more than 800 physical stores and e-commerce platforms, the event organisers have announced.

Cumulatively, the registered buyers so far represent more than 50 million customers in 35 countries worldwide.

The luxury agency and aggregator of brands and buyers has partnered with Enterprise Europe Network for its second Meet the Buyer event on 9th November, with a workshop session for brands on 3rd November highlighting how best to gain interest from a buyer and top tips on selling their brand.


The workshop will include speakers from Retaissance and NuORDER with a focus on the current market opportunity and insight from their exclusive retail partnership program including Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales.

The list of buyers attending includes names like John Lewis and Partners, Atterley, Curated Crowd, Seezona, Wolf and Badger and two major UK buying groups that represent more than 700 stores in the UK.

Cathie Osborne, founder and owner of Retaissance, said: “We’re very excited to see that so many people have already signed up for the event.

“Our priority has always been providing the very best opportunities and support for independents, so we can’t wait to see the amazing relationships start to develop.

“At last year’s event, our very own brand Coco and Kinney met the boutique online fashion marketplace Atterley, who hold the likes of Jimmy Choo and Burberry within their portfolio.

“Within 24 hours after the brand started on the site, they received their first order. Hearing about the success from last year, we can’t wait to do it all again!”
