As other industry tradeshows make format adjustments and shift dates in attempt to retain exhibitors and hold onto attendees, The Atlanta Shoe Market (TASM) continues to build on its strong growth of recent years by staying true to its principles and practices: convenient, affordable and housed under one roof . The TASMs 2010 Fall Market edition, scheduled for Feb.
19-21 at Atlantas Cobb Galleria Center in the Renaissance Waverly Hotel, is sold out-again. . .
It is difficult enough that FFANY and WSA show dates overlap this February (2-4). But when three shoe shows (FFANY, WSA and Outdoor Retailer) all had overlapping dates for this August, something had to be done.
WSA show organizers have decided to break up the logjam by moving its show dates from August 3-5 to 9-11 at the Sands Expo and The Venetian in Las Vegas. FFANY will be held August 3-5 in New York and the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City, UT, runs August 3-6—the new dates moving from its previous July dates to address the needs of the paddlesports market. .
