The OFFPRICE Show is once again being recognized for its growth in net square footage. The Trade Show News Network (TSNN) recently announced its 2012 Top 250 Trade Shows in the United States in terms of net square footage, and both the February and August OFFPRICE Shows ranked in the top 200. Checking in at #163 is the February 2012 OFFPRICE Show (126,245 sq. feet). Right behind at #164 is the August 2012 OFFPRICE Show (124,544 sq. feet). Both shows take place at the Sands Expo at Venetian/Palazzo in Las Vegas, Nev.
“In order to be recognized on TSNN’s Top 250 List, several things have to happen at the same time. There needs to be quality exhibitors who want to be at the show, coupled with thousands of retailers in attendance writing orders,” said Stephen Krogulski, Chief Executive Officer of OFFPRICE. “No show can grow without a hard working staff, eager exhibitors and a healthy attendance.”
The recognition speaks volumes about the off-price industry as a whole. As more retailers realize the tremendous opportunity to source apparel, accessories, footwear and more at prices that are well below wholesale, prospective exhibitors take notice and join the show. It provides show management the ability to create a truly dynamic show floor.
An integral part of Fashion Week each August and February in Las Vegas, the OFFPRICE Show is set to feature another large show floor at its upcoming 38th show, August 17-20, 2013 at the Sands Expo at Venetian/Palazzo. OFFPRICE has established itself as the best source for buyers to find apparel, accessories, footwear, jewelry, and more, often times at up to 70 percent below wholesale prices. More and more exhibitors are carrying brand name apparel than in years past as buyers desire to find brand names at value prices continues to increase.
