“A must for any apparel retailer and merchandiser” is how the trade show OFFPRICE promotes its fall event in Las Vegas.
Rebranded as OPNYC in 2015, the former “Taste of OFFPRICE” Show returned to Midtown Manhattan in early May.
OFFPRICE is at it again, this time with shows back to back in May and June.
The largest show floor in the 20-year history of the OFFPRICE Show catered 8,460 retailers looking for trendy and fashionable items for their stores.
There’s a very good chance that even if you’ve been to an Offprice show before, you still haven’t seen everything there is to see. This is especially true, says Offprice CEO Stephen Krogulski, because the show continues to sign new exhibitors and expand to meet the needs of its buyers.
OFFPRICE is all about speed, says Stephen Krogulski, CEO. “The OFFPRICE shows are about writing orders,” Krogulski says. “You come to an OFFPRICE show, buy your goods, and the goods will ship immediately.”
The 40th OFFPRICE Show (August 16-19, 2014) in Las Vegas celebrated the history of the show while demonstrating a vibrant and exciting future. The show recognized the 15 companies that have been exhibiting at OFFPRICE since its first year in 1995 at a cocktail reception for attendees.
Both the February and August OFFPRICE Show’s placed in the top 200 in the Trade Show News Network’s (TSNN) prestigious Top 250 Trade Shows in the US rankings. The rankings list the top 250 trade shows in the country based on net-square-footage. The February 2013 show ranked 159 (131,000 NSF), while the August ‘13 show checked-in at 165 (125,000 NSF). In 2012, the show’s ranked 163 in February and 164 in August.
Retailers have discovered OFFPRICE is the place to be for quality apparel at almost unbelievable prices. More than 500 exhibitors carrying products at up to 70 percent below wholesale costs provided a buzzing show floor at the Sands Expo at Venetian/Palazzo, in Las Vegas. The February 2014 OFFPRICE Show enjoyed gains in two important trade show categories: retailer attendance and net-square-feet. OFFPRICE experienced a healthy retailer attendance gain of six percent from its February 2013 show.
OFFPRICE order writing trade shows connect retail buyers with the leading off-price specialists offering clothing, accessories and footwear at 20 to 70 percent below wholesale. Taking place every August and February in Las Vegas, the OFFPRICE Show is the largest event of its kind. The next show will be held February 16-19, 2014 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center.
