trends. “Compelling displays are key to healthy sales,” says Margaret Casey, director of programming, WMCLV. “It’s a very competitive market and gi retail- ers are competing for their share of the consumer’s wallet.”
And, as always, unbeatable entertain- ment and networking opportunities are in development.
“Given our unique platform, we anticipate a tremendous buyer turnout for this inaugural show,” says McKay. A dedicated buyer outreach team is already conducting an extensive program focus- ing on personal outreach to the buyer community. In addition, WMCLV’s stellar marketing program will include direct mail, extensive advertising and a comprehensive email campaign.
Compared to other convention cities, Las Vegas continues to be one of the most aordable U.S. destinations, and attractive rates have been negotiated for Gi + Home attendees. WMCLV is the only venue in the western U.S. capable of producing a Gi + Home market featur- ing a broad selection of resources for buyer attendees, all on one campus. No other destination can provide the experi- ence of Las Vegas for the value oered.
McKay says that the Gi + Home show is lling a void. “Buyers and exhibitors are anxious to have a comprehensive resource in the West, which has been fragmented and underserved for some time.”
