Can anyone visit Top Drawer A/W17?

If you are in the process of setting up your own retail business, or are a student within the retail industry then you are more than welcome to attend.

Do I need to provide proof of trade?

Yes. Spot checks for proof of trade will be in operation. You should have proof of trade on you which can include a business card or a company cheque book. If you are found buying for personal use, you will be asked to leave the exhibition.
