Fashion buyers from around the world will flock to Las Vegas for the upcoming OFFPRICE show, produced by Tarsus Group, to stock up on apparel and accessories for the Fall and Winter seasons. Held during the world-famous Las Vegas Fashion week, the new show will run August 13 – 16th at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. Hundreds of new and returning exhibitors will release brand new products, providing buyers with great deals on back-to-school and holiday wear, as well as a sneak-peek at what to expect for the 2017 New Year’s fashions.
The array of on-trend designs and products on display at OFFPRICE cannot be matched elsewhere. Exhibitors will be offering discounted prices from 20% – 70% below regular wholesale rates, making buyer savings will well worth the trip.
“One of the biggest differences between OFFPRICE and other tradeshows is that ours is an order writing show,” says OFFPRICE Publishing Editor Jasmine Glasheen. “The product is already made, so you can write an order for the product you need and have it sent to you within two weeks. The OFFPRICE show is great for fulfilling product gaps immediately.”
OFFPRICE is exclusive to wholesale professionals. As a special resource for Independent Retailer readers, we’ve interviewed several of the exhibitors for an inside preview of what’s new and trending at OFFPRICE. Be sure to register at www.offpriceshow.com/lasvegas to reserve your spot in advance.
