Las Vegas (February 27, 2017) – Held February 20-23, 2017 at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, the Womenswear In Nevada (WWIN) show recorded a 13 percent increase in store attendance over the February 2016 edition. Attracting apparel retailers and other buyers from all 50 states and 30-plus foreign countries, the 2017 show also tracked notable increases from key geographic targets, including Nevada, Texas, Colorado, Wisconsin and Missouri as well as Canada and Mexico. Fueled by a record-breaking opening day, the strong attendance came together with exhibitor reports of brisk order-writing and new business to create a positive buzz on the show floor during the four-day run.
Opening one day before a number of the other trade shows comprising Las Vegas Fashion Week, WWIN’s first day was among the highest attended in its recent history.
"Almost all of my orders on opening day were brand new accounts for us,” said Ravi Shajwani, Shana Apparel. “It has been a great show for us.”
The next edition of WWIN is scheduled for August 14-17, 2017 at the Rio Hotel. For more information on exhibiting or attending, visit www.wwinshow.com.
