Las Vegas KidShow/ MAGIC Tradeshow

We returned to Vegas at the end of February to exhibit at the Las Vegas KidShow at the Bally’s Hotel and Casino. This was a smaller show that’s geared toward kids apparel. We heard it was a good show from talking to folks around us at the ABC Kids Expo last October. This show was held in one of the ballrooms and was a much smaller, more manageable size show. We met some really nice people around us. One lady has been doing the show for years, she was selling cute accessories and tutus for girls. It’s nice talking to people who’ve been doing these shows for a while to get some really good insight into the market. We’re newbies in the kids apparel market but we’re finding we’re getting a good response from buyers from Gift Shops, Resorts and parks. We managed to get some good orders and made some new contacts as well.

After the KidShow was over, we spent the day walking the floor at MAGIC. This is a HUGE apparel tradeshow, spread out into 2 buildings- The Las Vegas Convention Center and Mandalay Bay. We had exhibited at MAGIC once in 2010 in the Juniors apparel section. We found the booths around to be so huge that we almost got lost. You need at least a 20′ x 20′ size booth to stand out there. There’s so many awesome brands like Tokidoki, Mighty Fine, Lounge Fly and See You Monday. We picked up some cute leggings from them which we’ll be offering on the site soon. The highlight of the show was when I walked into the Juniors hall and there was the Tokidoki booth facing me, and the creator of Tokidoki Simone Legno was standing there. I went straight over there to say “hello again”. Even though I doubt he remembers me… though this is probably my 3rd or 4th time meeting Simone. I got some nice bystander to take a picture! Cheese! Here’s some photos from the Las Vegas Trade Shows.
