Retailers from south Florida, the Caribbean, and beyond will find a convention center filled with more than 90 booths of quality apparel and accessories, priced at 70% below wholesale costs. The new OPMiami is a market sized show, meaning while it still delivers incredible prices, it is considerably smaller than the Las Vegas based editions.
“We’re thrilled to return to Miami,” said Stephen Krogulski, CEO of OFFPRICE. “The timing is right to bring a show back to Miami with the right partner. Miami is one of the fashion hubs of not just this country, but the Caribbean and Latin America as well. You never know what you’ll find at the OPMiami show, but one thing is for sure, the apparel available will be priced lower than anywhere else in the nation.”
OPMiami will feature 90 booths of apparel and accessories on the upper level of the Miami Airport Convention Center (MACC). SMOTA takes place on the first floor of the MACC on the same dates as OPMiami, June 28-30, 2015. SMOTA is a must attend for retailers looking for footwear as 1,500 lines are represented under one roof in a user-friendly, cost-effective atmosphere catering to their every need.
“We at SMOTA are so pleased that we are doing a combined show June 28-30, 2015 with the OFFPRICE Show,” said Beverlee Maier, executive director of SMOTA. “We feel that now the buyers can meet all their needs for shoes, clothing and accessories, and where better than sunny Miami! The MACC is a user friendly facility with everything under one roof.”
The new OPMiami show is a great opportunity for buyers to source products who cannot attend the August show because of obligations to their store’s back-to-school sales. Exhibitors in Miami are expected to provide a peak into fall trends and offer back-to-school specials.
Show organizers anticipate more than 2,000 retailers to attend both events.
