OFFPRICE Show Expands Childrens Wear Offerings

The off-price retail market just keeps growing. Sales of off-price apparel and home goods are expected to increase six to eight percent between now and 2020, outpacing the growth of the overall retail market. For over twenty years, the OFFPRICE trade show has been a reliable industry source for off-price apparel, footwear, and accessories.

The next OFFPRICE Show, to be held August 12 – 15th at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, features a newly expanded children’s wear section (see details on page 11). The children’s wear market is expected to reach $70.1 billion by the end of 2018. There is no question off-price will play a huge role in that growth. Now more than ever, parents and gift-givers aren’t willing to sacrifice on style when it comes to kids. Off-price pieces offer fashion and affordability.

OFFPRICE Show is an order-writing tradeshow with more than 500 vendors spanning over 1,300 booths. The exhibitors offer men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel, footwear, jewelry, and accessories for 20 – 70 percent below wholesale. Wholesalers are able to sell major labels and unbranded goods at lower price points by capitalizing on forecasting mistakes, canceled orders, and overstocks from full-price retailers and manufacturers. As a reseller, this means you can pass along the savings to your customers, and offer in-demand products at very competitive prices without sacrificing your margins.

OFFPRICE has complimentary buying tours so new and veteran buyers to the off-price industry can learn the ins-and-outs of the OFFPRICE Show, how to get the best deals, and which exhibitors have the types of products you are seeking. There is also a Q&A session and plenty of opportunity to network with other buyers. Show management recommends planning out your trip in advance and arriving early to get the best deals before they sell out. Before the show, you can view exhibitor lists, floor maps, and more on the OFFPRICE website and show mobile app.
