February 2017 Rocky Mountain Gift and Apparel Show Recap

Rocky Mountain Gift Show doubles new buyers attendance!

Over 3,200 buyers attended the February Rocky Mountain Gift Show and Denver Apparel & Accessory Market. 137 new-to-the-show buyers decided to shop for rustic, western, resort and souvenir merchandise, that is twice as many NEW buyers than last February! Speaking of new, the show introduced over 85 NEW temporary exhibitors adding to the many reasons the Rocky Mountain Gift Show and Denver Apparel & Accessory Market is the Rocky Mountain region’s most attended trade show for wholesale buying opportunities in the resort, souvenir, gift, jewelry, home and related industries.

Friday at the Rocky Mountain Gift Show was full of energy with over 500 buyers receiving free lunch tickets, participating gift showrooms were open late for Late Night Friday Night shopping; and new to the show, Wilcor Outdoor entertained buyers with hot cocoa, music and giveaways at the Buyers Bonfire!

Each day of the show, two lucky buyers took home high-end swag bags with products from Primitives by Kathy, Naked Bee and Sunday Afternoons hats.
