The fashion show is coming along . It will be held in the Westgate Cabaret. Westgate Cabaret has a stage and double decker seating. We will start with our Meet and greet with complimentary food and drinks then start the fashion show about 45 minutes from start of the meet and greet.
Excite. Enhance. Expand. Could you tell us how this theme plays out at the upcoming show? How does it relate to buyers?
The theme for this show plays out in the fact we are bringing exciting lines to show while growing in size. All the while enhancing the look and feel of the show with more advertising in the lobby with models and advertising. We have added more booths to the floorplan which also enhances the look of the show. Especially in the first aisle!
New Buyer Outreach Program
Also for this show we have implemented a buyer outreach program. This program is designed to offer incentives to the stores to attend. Incentives like free hotel stays, dinners, shows, and in some occasions flights. We are currently working with our existing exhibitors to ensure that the stores that they need to see will be attending in September.
