Buyers Pack Las Vegas to Peruse Some 15 Trade Shows
If retailers couldn’t find what they were looking for in Las Vegas, they probably couldn’t find it anywhere.
The vast array of apparel, textile, accessories and footwear trade shows held between Feb. 10 and Feb. 15 stretched on for miles at five different locations.
The Las Vegas Convention Center was ground zero for young contemporary clothing, sourcing and shoes. The Mandalay Bay Convention Center hosted a slew of shows that appealed to menswear buyers, lingerie retailers, womenswear boutiques and anyone interested in buying a new product with a different angle or sustainable bent.
The Sands Expo and Convention Center kept up with the hip world of streetwear, sportswear and menswear. And every ballroom at the Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel & Casino was packed with exhibitors of women’s apparel, accessories and hats.
At the Embassy Suites Hotel, there were three floors of jewelry makers and their collections to visit without having to leave the building while two swans glided through the lobby pond.
