Association of Trade Partners Sweden is industry-specific and works for and with our members. We aim to raise the industry on the political agenda and maintain strong contacts with the government, industry offices, organizations, and collaborative partners.

Through our international contacts, we monitor legal and trade issues via ICC and UICAB. We are also active in the Nordic Federation IUCAB, IDI, and Team Sweden, and collaborate with Business Sweden, Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, and Stockholm County Governor.

Trade Partners is the founder of Stockholm Fashion District. We work closely with the Swedish Fashion Council and engage in supporting various important industry networks and fashion organizations such as the Swedish Fashion Association. We also serve as representatives in the Nordic Fashion Association (NFA), which comprises fashion organizations in the Nordic region.

We engage in industry-specific projects for each segment of our membership, and for our shoe industry members, we undertake various initiatives including:

Stockholm Shoe House, which consists of three floors showcasing Swedish and international shoe brands and is part of Stockholm Fashion District.

Market Council for Stockholm Shoe House, which addresses overarching industry issues in Sweden.

Skoleverantörernas Förening, which Trade Partners actively engages in and supports as an important industry network.

Buying days in Stockholm Shoe House, organized in Stockholm and related to purchasing events for the shoe industry.

Buying days in Varberg, which complement the purchasing-related activities organized in Stockholm Fashion District and through Stockholm Shoe House.

– Swedish Shoe Environmental Initiative (SSIE), an initiative originating from the Swedish shoe industry and initiated in 2012 in collaboration with Trade Partners and Swedish commerce. The goal of the project is to create a tool to facilitate sustainable shoe production for individual companies; a sustainability tool for design and product development consisting of an index.

Stockholm Fashion District, founded in 2016 by Trade Partners, is a unique and innovative business meeting place with digital and physical showrooms open 365 days a year, fashion weeks focusing on trade that bring together Swedish and international brands and buyers, forums for creativity and creation, and further development through seminars and training. The district is visited annually by designers, e-commerce, retail, international delegations, stakeholders, and other fashion enthusiasts. Over 600 brands showcase their collections in the district.

Network Groups, where Trade Partners Sweden works to create conditions for our members to succeed. We do this by actively participating and influencing developments within our members’ industries. Significant efforts are also made in legal matters to protect free trade and thus improve business opportunities for agents, distributors, importers, and others operating in an international environment.

Seminars and Training, where Stockholm Fashion District’s training and seminars target companies with growth potential in the design and fashion industry. You can be active in retail, within a design company, as a designer, agent, or distributor, marketing manager, salesperson, or CEO.

Newsletter, sent out monthly with content-rich information for the industry.
