9 Emerging Brands at KNOWSHOW Showcase

KNOWSHOW is all about igniting the right connections and providing a playground for different kinds of brands to proudly showcase their product and retailers to discover new awesome labels.

We recognize how hard it can be for an  new brand to gain traction. Spreading the word and opening new wholesale accounts, while working with tight budgets and all of the other hurdles that come with starting something new can be overwhelming.

That's why we created the Emerging Brands Showcase, a dedicated show section where up-and-coming apparel, accessory and countertop goods brands can effortlessly show their products to Canada’s top retail buyers.

Designed specifically to help promote a new wave of Canadian brands, KNOWSHOW is proud to announce 9 of these dynamic  companies that you'll be able to see at the Emerging Brands Showcase this summer.
