The International Guest Buyer Support Programme is a highly successful initiative. In excess of £18m of orders for businesses were generated by buyers attending London Fashion Week and participating in the Guest Buyer Support Programme in February 2009.

Because of the structure of the programme this year LDA funding will not be used on flights for the February 2010 London Fashion Week.
