2 Las Vegas Fashion Week events to co-locate

Two Las Vegas Fashion Week events — Womenswear in Nevada (WWIN), operated by Clarion Events, and Las Vegas Apparel, operated by ANDMORE (formerly International Market Centers) — will co-locate at The Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas beginning in 2024.

Together, the two buying events assemble under one roof each February and August to present more than 500 brands, designed to cater to the evolving needs of apparel and accessories buyers and sellers, according to ANDMORE.

The Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas aims to offer market-goers an elevated overall experience: a broader depth and breadth of apparel and accessories styles, categories and price points with easier navigation, gift and lifestyle crossover brands, an elevated arrival experience, seamless check-in,  customer service, expanded hospitality and amenities and more.

“Listening intently to the feedback of our valued customers, we recognize their need for a fresh, innovative venue for order writing in Las Vegas while staying true to the core values and amenities WWIN has maintained for over 20 years. We are proud to announce that the wait is over,” said Desiree Hanson, executive vice president of fashion at Clarion Events.

This co-location shifts the home of WWIN to a new trade show destination. The surrounding downtown area offers buyers and sellers options for hotels, restaurants and entertainment in the renowned Las Vegas Arts District and its growing culinary and mixology scene.

“This collaboration is a game-changer for the industry,” added Dorothy Belshaw, executive vice president and chief growth officer of ANDMORE. “The fusion of WWIN’s legacy and Las Vegas Apparel’s aligned and customer-centric approach creates new efficiencies and greater value for buyers, by enabling them to see more and do more while at Las Vegas Fashion Week.”

The two markets will evenly divide the Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas, each maintaining its individual brand identity and allowing buyers seamlessly to shop between the two events. Both markets will continue to offer buying opportunities alongside an educational and amenity-filled experience during Las Vegas Fashion Week.
