Womenswear in Nevada (WWIN) and Las Vegas Apparel Will Co-Locate in Downtown Las Vegas in 2024
As Las Vegas Fashion Week got underway on Aug. 7, two trade shows announced they will be co-locating under one roof for their next editions in 2024.
Womenswear in Nevada (WWIN), produced by Clarion Events Inc. and Las Vegas Apparel and operated by ANDMORE (formerly International Market Centers), will run concurrently at The Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas Feb. 13-15, 2024 — just days after the 2024 Super Bowl, which will be played at Allegiant Stadium on Feb. 11.
Together, the two buying events are expected to feature more than 500 brands.
Relocating from Caesars Palace, WWIN showcases a mix of all women’s apparel categories and price points — modern updated, petite, tall, plus size, contemporary, traditional and accessories. The semi-annual market, which was held Aug. 7-10 at Caesars Palace, presented 1,500 lines from more than 400 exhibitors and attracted buyers from across the U.S. and from 25 countries worldwide.
“Listening intently to the feedback of our valued customers, we recognize their need for a fresh, innovative venue for order writing in Las Vegas while staying true to the core values and amenities WWIN has maintained for over 20 years. We are proud to announce that the wait is over,” said Desiree Hanson, executive vice president, fashion, Clarion Events.
The Expo at World Market Center, which opened in 2021, offers complimentary parking, as well as multiple dining options. The surrounding downtown area offers buyers and sellers new and affordable options for hotels, restaurants and entertainment in the Las Vegas Arts District and its growing culinary and mixology scene.
“This collaboration is a game-changer for the industry,” said ANDMORE Executive Vice President and Chief Growth Officer Dorothy Belshaw. “The fusion of WWIN's legacy and Las Vegas Apparel's aligned and customer-centric approach creates new efficiencies and greater value for buyers by enabling them to see more and do more while at Las Vegas Fashion Week.”
The two markets will evenly divide the Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas, each maintaining its individual brand identity and allowing buyers to seamlessly shop between the two events.
Las Vegas Apparel launched in August 2021 at the Expo at World Market Center, creating a curated destination for young contemporary lines, accessories and more. The semi-annual market features more than 100 exhibitors and 150 lines, as well as dozens of complementary gifts, fashion accessories and point of purchase products available in the World Market Center Las Vegas permanent showrooms.
Also part of Las Vegas Fashion Week, MAGIC, PROJECT and Sourcing at MAGIC were held Aug. 7-9 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and will return Feb. 13-15 at the same venue. OFFPRICE was held Aug. 5-8 at the Venetian Expo Center and will return in February. The four events are produced by Informa.
