CURVE’s Decade of Lingerie

CURVE is celebrating a HUGE milestone in February — 10 years in business! It’s an incredible accomplishment for a trade event that showcases in two major US cities.
CURVELASVEGAS opened its doors at the Venetian in February 2007 and CURVENEWYORK was launched in February 2008 at Penn Plaza. Since then, thousands of visitors have walked the aisles at both locations, twice a year, to see a staggering amount of intimate apparel, swimwear, shapewear, lounge, atheleisure and accessories from a growing roster of exhibitors.

Thanks to CURVE, brands – large and small – have had the opportunity to meet with buyers from speciality boutiques, e-commerce sites and department stores based in the US and worldwide.
The result? An opportunity for both parties to expand and improve business as Pierre Nicolas Hurstel, CEO of Eurovet Americas/CURVEXPO, noted:
“We have offered independent stores an invaluable resource to build their differentiation and offer something new and exciting to a customer who is still discovering the intimate apparel category. This past decade, several foreign brands successfully entered the US market with contacts and business initiated on the CURVE show floor.”
