In response to the growing demand for a tightly
merchandised Las Vegas-based event featuring
premium and advanced product for men and women,
ENKVegas made its rousing debut. Featuring
nearly 70 highly coveted exhibitors, the show
runs from August 25-27 and is located in the
Bassano Ballroom complex at the Venetian hotel.
We know the quality of our exhibitors is
superior, and now we are seeing that same level
of retailer at ENKVegas, said Elyse Kroll,
Chairman of ENK International. It's very
exciting. We've created an intimate environment
perfectly suited for writing business, and from
the response we are receiving, it looks like
ENKVegas is a homerun.
ENKVegas is the latest upscale fashion trade
show from ENK International, which has built its
incredible reputation throughout the industry on
identifying and presenting business-driven
events of impeccable quality and taste.
ENKVegas is a powerful Las Vegas-based
alternative for both longtime exhibitors who
show at ENK's New York exhibitions as well as
for those who need a West Coast forum to
showcase their collections to a new set of
We've been showing at Blue in New York for the
past two years and it's always been great, says
Marina Lelchuk of Buckler. Unlike other Vegas
shows where the environment is too rushed and
overwhelming, this show actually provides a much
calmer, intimate setting. It's much easier for
buyers to work the appointments. They are
actually writing orders instead of just
previewing. We had great appointments with
ENKVegas is the answer retailers were looking
for in Vegas, says Rick Speilberg of Hudson
Jeans. Retailers have been here since the show
opened and there is only good happening here
no bad or ugly. We are thrilled and, speaking on
behalf of us all participating in a debut,
ENKVegas is a solution.
We are so pleased with the appearance,
sincerity and ease of this show, says Kate Levis
of Hatch Showroom.
It's refreshing as
exhibitors, and we have also heard from our
buyers how nice it is to participate in a show
that is about the merchandise and not the
'show. The ENKVegas show is a fresh and
elegant exhibit. We are happy to be a part of
it, and share the experience with our buyers.
The ENK team has been so gracious and made the
set-up and execution of the show seamless.
Buyers from high-end retailers and better
independent boutiques, including Frasier Ross of
Kitson, Ron Herman and Mario Bisio of Mario's
crowded the aisles to shop the upscale
contemporary brands at ENKVegas.
We had no idea of what to expect, but We've had
great success so far, says Lori Lindsay of
Cheap Monday. All of my appointments showed up,
I picked up several new clients, and reconnected
with buyers I haven't seen in a long time!
Our experience at ENKVegas allowed us to work
in a more intimate way with our accounts, says
Scott Allgauer of Rag & Bone. The venue,
ambiance and attention to detail were in keeping
with the Rag & Bone aesthetic. Our accounts
appreciated the private yet approachable vibe of
Despite a less-than-ideal industry climate,
ENKVegas has succeeded with the perfect recipe
of quality over quantity, intimacy over size and
scope, and an environment conducive to business
getting written. It is rare when exhibitors and
buyers come together to agree on a collective
response to a trade show but it appears with
ENKVegas, they have.
Initially, we were concerned that our clients
wouldn't want to see yet another show, but so
far We've seen tremendous traffic, says Crystal
Green Aignan of J Brand. The show has been
very well produced. The energy is relaxed and
seductive to the client, and We've seen terrific
results. We will definitely be back!
