A few weeks ago I was able to attend WWDMAGIC as well as Accessories The Show (ATS). I stayed at the Palazzo, which I love (you can get a pretty good rate if you’re attending a show there) and it’s a short walk to the Sands Expo Center where ATS was being held.
Originally, I was only going to attend ATS because I wanted to find some new jewelry and handbag vendors and having never attended ATS before, I thought it would be my best bet to find accessories. After all, it’s name said it all – or so I thought. 🙂 On a whim, I also decided to register for MAGIC as well figuring if I had time I would swing by and check it out since it had been some years since I had attended. I was only going to be in Vegas for two days, so I had to use my time wisely.
The first day, I met up with a girl friend who was also in Vegas for a show and we set off to attend ATS and… what a disappointment it was! For being called Accessories The Show, there sure weren’t many vendors and of the vendors that were there, they all seemed to offer very similar products. That same day we also stopped by to check out Capsule, Liberty, and Agenda. Although, there was not much at those shows really for my boutique customer, it was still fun to check it out.
The next day I headed over to check out MAGIC on my own and am so happy I did. The accessories section at MAGIC by far exceeded the accessories at ATS. I found so many new, great vendors that it really got me excited to put in some orders! All in all, I’m glad I made the trip – I met some great new people and found some new accessories vendors and accomplished what I set out to do. 🙂
Did you attend WWDMAGIC or any other of the shows? What did you think?
