CIFF YOUTH is moving dates and location for the coming seasons

As the previous seasons have shed light on emerging needs within the youth fashion industry, CIFF YOUTH took the opportunity to ensure optimal conditions for its community: dates matching key buyers’ schedules and budgets, and a spot-on location in central Copenhagen.


Meeting its clients’ needs by moving dates

CIFF YOUTH will take place on June 21st – 23rd.

Our target is to strengthen the Scandinavian children’s industry by moving the dates closer to some of Europe’s most prominent youth tradeshows, which are taking place in June. Throughout the years, Copenhagen has proven to be a key destination for the industry. By moving CIFF YOUTH to the end of June, we expect to attract more key buyers, who already are in Europe and in the middle of the buying season.

Most importantly, this decision comes after discussions with our clients, buyers and the press.

“As the youth fashion industry evolves, so do we. We have faced an increasing demand from our clients to move CIFF YOUTH’s dates, allowing them to book relevant buyers before they close their budgets. It is our priority to please our brands and visitors by meeting their needs and offering top-notch service quality and a unique experience” Kristian W. Andersen, Chief Innovation Officer of CIFF and CIFF YOUTH.


New location in central Copenhagen

Stepping out of Copenhagen Fashion Week, we made the decision to move CIFF YOUTH to the historic location of Øksnehallen, in order to benefit from the advantages the city center has to offer.
The venue is located in Vesterbro, a few minutes away from Copenhagen Central Station, and will give our visitors a glimpse of the Copenhagen lifestyle and culture.


Keeping quality of service and creativity levels up

The change of location will have no effect on the quality of our services. It is still on top of our minds to ensure a good experience to our clients and all our visitors.

CIFF YOUTH has always differentiated itself by ensuring quality and creativity. We can therefore ensure we will keep on doing what works best: blending new talents with more established brands, in order to offer the perfect mix to our visitors.

We will reintroduce NEXT, special area launched this past season, and with no other target than helping up and coming brands grow.
