When you purchase a package to exhibit on COTERIE DIGITAL, the functionality will be added to your existing NuORDER account. Please contact your COTERIE DIGITAL sales contact to request a copy of the contract.

Managing and Connecting with Buyers

Through the combined database of NuORDER’s retailers and our fashion trade event marketplaces (MAGIC, COTERIE, PROJECT, and MICAM Americas) a global pool of buyers are resourced, featuring boutique to big-box retail stores shopping a wide variety of fashion categories, including apparel, footwear, and accessories.  All buyers will be required to be registered and approved before accessing the digital trade event. You'll also have control over which buyers can view your profile and what they can see through the privacy setting of your digital brand page.

If you have the contact details of the buyer, you can reach out to them directly by sending them your unique URL for your digital showroom. If you do not have their contact details, that retailer will need to request to connect with you, for you to be able to interact with them. Additionally, through targeted content like brand editorials & designer interviews, retailers will be able to discover your products and navigate to your brand page in order to request a connection and shop your brand.

You will only be able to see the buyers who have sent you a connection request, not all who have viewed your showroom. However, you will also receive an analytics report which will provide you key metrics on your page performance.

Yes, you can invite your own buyer base to the digital trade event. Each brand page has a unique URL, so you can send a link and invite your buyers to visit.
