“Underneath it all, lingerie is fashion’s foundations.”
This sentiment is the New International Lingerie Show’s (NILS) theme for their upcoming trade event running from February 5 – 7, 2019 at the Westgate Hotel in Las Vegas.
Close to 30 exhibitors give visiting buyers a rounded selection of intimates that vary from classic, whimsical, sensual and playful – perfect for customers at lingerie or ready-to-wear boutiques.
Streamlining the Trade Experience
With NILS running at the same time as Las Vegas Fashion Week, CURVELASVEGAS, Magic and London Edge, the show sets itself up as trade destination for every type of retailer visiting Vegas.
“We are right next door to Magic and Central Hall of the LV Convention Center. All buyers need do is walk under the breezeway that separates the Westgate from the convention center.” said NILS’ Tim McNamara.
A collaborative shuttle service between NILS and London Edge makes transportation between all these trade shows even easier.
This February’s show dates are no coincidence, says Tim, they were picked with an important purpose: maximizing and streamlining time for vendors and retailers to visit the NILS show with ease.
Tim also has wonderful advice For buyers trying to find alternative, efficient ways of traveling between the shows Tim suggests the Las Vegas Monorail. “I would encourage them to give it a try. A 5-day pass is about $30 and it’s fast, clean and safe. It is really an unknown quantity in Las Vegas.”
Once buyers are at NILS, they’re in for three days of intimates buying and a networking party on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at 6pm at the Westgate Cabaret Theater. Beer, wine food and live music are on tap during the evening.
“[The Networking Party] is a fun time and we encourage everyone to attend and meet their fellow lingerie fanatics.” said Tim. “There are a lot of connections to me made.”
What could be more fun than a networking party? How about cold-hard cash? The show is giving away $1,000 during each day of the show to lucky winners. All buyers have to do to enter is register for the show. They’ll get an entry for each day they attend.
