LAS VEGAS—The co-location of two Las Vegas Fashion Week events—Womenswear in Nevada (WWIN) operated by Clarion Events, Inc. and Las Vegas Apparel operated by ANDMORE (formerly International Market Centers)—in Downtown Las Vegas will offer attendees a fresh experience off the beaten path.
In February and August of 2024, the two events will co-locate at The Expo at World Market Center, a purpose-built Downtown Las Vegas trade show destination. WWIN, a long-time Las Vegas Fashion Week destination, will relocate from Caesars Palace; Las Vegas Apparel launched in August 2021 at the Expo at World Market Center. The two markets will evenly divide the Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas, with each maintaining its individual brand identity while allowing buyers seamlessly to shop between both.
The semi-annual WWIN market presents 1,500 lines—a mix of all women’s apparel categories and price points—from more than 400 exhibitors and attracts buyers from across the U.S. and 25 countries. The semi-annual Las Vegas Apparel presents more than 100 exhibitors and 150 lines, focusing on contemporary lines and accessories, and attracts buyers from across the U.S. and 9 countries.
Together, they will present more than 500 brands and offer a broader depth and breadth of apparel and accessories styles, categories and price points. “The buyers we anticipate seeing are looking for the quality brands they know from both shows in a setting that is comfortable and easy to navigate, which makes the Expo at World Market Center an attractive location to shop,” Caron Stover, ANDMORE SVP, Apparel, said. “The destination is also closer to other Fashion Week events, offering buyers added convenience and efficiency. Attendees can park for free on site or have ride-share drop them off right at the front door of the show.”
The organizers of both shows view Downtown Las Vegas as the place to be. “With the loyal followings both shows have built, WWIN as the premier order writing show for almost 25 years and LVA in just two years, we expect to see attendee numbers well into the thousands,” Melissa K. Montes, Vice President of WWIN, said. “The caliber of restaurants, trendy bars and brand-new hotels Downtown in the Arts District is showing buyers a new side of the city that’s much easier to navigate, especially after a long day of appointments.”
