Comments from Matt Law: Show Director:

“ The Ledge has continued to grow season on season and boasts a platform of solid action sports and streetwear brands. The Ledge is backed once again by an array of leading publications including Factory Media, which is Europe’s leading action sports publishing house. I feel that this kind of direct support really helps to legitimise what Ledge is about and shows its true core roots that we focus on within the industry from the ground up. We continually listen to our supporting brands and this September we have once again adapted the show to suit the needs of the industry. This is what The Ledge is really about, we are not just a start up show to try and manufacture a show within an industry we do not understand or claim to invent the wheel like so many before and now. We have proven over the last two years that we have a solid foundation and proven success buy the way of growth and the key brands involved. We are here to support the industry, listen to the needs of the brands and adapt at short notice to deliver, which is why The Ledge has been regarded as the only show of its kind in the UK that ticks all the boxes. No one else can really claim to do what we do For Our Industry, By Our Industry. Supporting Our Industry. We have the right industry people with over 20 years experience involved behind the scenes, great brands onboard and great industry and publication support. We are legit, which is what counts in todays market, as you know what you are getting. “
