Highlights from Rocky Mountain Gift Show

Over two hundred and thirty gift and apparel exhibitors welcomed buyers at the August event. The Rocky Mountain Gift Show and Denver Apparel Market maintained momentum with buyer traffic from Colorado and twelve surrounding states. The new event app was a complete success. Attendees found it easy to use, fast, convenient and informational. Select gift showrooms kicked off the show offering buyers cash incentives on orders. Many buyers took advantage of Free Lunch Friday and Late Night Friday Night shopping. Over the weekend, there were seminars, $1 margaritas, complimentary wine & cheese and informal modeling. Monday wrapped up the event for retailers with show-only specials and swag bag giveaways.

Rocky Mountain Buyer’s Choice Award Winners
Thirty-six new exhibitors, along with hundreds of new products, debuted at the Rocky Mountain Gift Show and Denver Apparel Market this August. During three days of the B2B event, buyers had a chance to vote for their favorite new products. The Visit & Vote promotion highlighted seventeen great new products that competed for the Rocky Mountain Buyer’s Choice Award. The votes are in and… it’s a tie! Colorado Wassail Company: McGowan’s Olde Tyme Wassail and Mova International’s Sea Life Globe are the winners! Both exhibitors will receive a free color ad for the February Show Book. Congratulations to all the participants for submitting their outstanding new products!

Margaritaville & The Wine and Cheese Social
$1 Margaritas never tasted so good! Every dollar from Margaritaville benefits the Wounded Warrior Project. Over the past six years, the Rocky Mountain Gift Show and Margaritaville patrons have donated over $6,000 to help support our nation’s heroes! Thank you for all your generous donations! As a new addition, attendees enjoyed complimentary wine, cheese and chocolate while viewing 2018 spring trends. The informal, interactive, fashion show was a huge hit and beautifully coordinated by Donna Baldwin Modeling Agency. The Wine and Cheese Social was Sponsored by: Denver Market Association & Rocky Mountain Gift Show
