Below is for historical reference only.
In 1980, Elyse Kroll developed a forum to present emerging, innovative designers. Her exhibition, held at a world-class hotel famous for its elegance and service, set ENK apart from the anonymous booth shows that were prevalent at the time. ENK's unique production introduced exhibitors, the media and an influential list of buyers to a new fashion experience. ENK Productions, as the company was first named, became an instant success with designers such as Jhane Barnes, Paul Smith and Hugo Boss. In 1986, responding to the demand from the womenswear market for a show of its own, ENK created Fashion Coterie. In 1987, Accessorie Circuit was added to begin the triumvirate that quickly became ENK International. The tremendous response by the global marketplace continues to prove that ENK International's exhibitions are not only eagerly anticipated bi-annual and tri-annual events but also clearly responsible for elevating New York City alongside Paris and Milan as an international fashion capital.
is unequivocally the most exclusive trade show producer in the United States.
Like a world-class conductor, ENK International orchestrates a series of
trade exhibitions that include nearly 10,000 design companies. In New York
City and Las Vegas, ENK International's shows attract 250,000 domestic and
international buyers and press yearly which produces sales of over $1 billion.
What distinguishes ENK International from all other trade exhibitions is
its juried roster of exhibitors, its progressive show environment, comprehensive
services and unsurpassed amenities. Currently, ENK International produces
16+ annual exhibitions including Coterie, Accessorie
Collections, Children's Club and ENKVegas.
