“AccessoriesTheShow is a beautiful, clean show. It’s more selective than others and attracts better, more qualified buyers. Also, you can tell show management really cares about their people; it’s the only show that cares about their exhibitors as much as they care about the buyers.”
Glenda Gies Design
“We like AccessoriesTheShow because we fit in but still stand out. We saw good quality retailers at the January edition and like how the show is three days long on a Sunday through Tuesday schedule. The lunches are great also!”

It was smooth and easy as far as operations go.”
“The February edition of AccessoriesTheShow was definitely the most successful show we’ve ever had in Las Vegas. It’s important because it’s a market that connects the entire U.S.!

Overall, we found the quality of retailers very good and on the second day we had a higher quality than average place the most orders.”

It’s saturated with shows and you want to be in the one where you get noticed. I’ve been searching for the home that I like most for my company and AccessoriesTheShow felt the most right.”

We feel the criteria for producing a world class event is experienced management in promotion, proper jurying, creating an exciting ambiance, buyer comfort, convenient layout of booths and exhibitors who contribute to making their customers buying trip an enjoyable process.

I know that I can always count on AccessoriesTheShow to have the “best of the best” in terms of selection and quality of products. Keep up the good work.”

"We were thrilled with AccessoriesTheShow! Shoeclips.biz launched its wholesale business six months ago and AccessoriesTheShow was our first time emerging into the fashion market. Having been a business owner for years, I have participated in many trade shows in the past and I have to say that AccessoriesTheShow is truly a high-end, class act show. The complimentary and ‘out of this world’ catering, fantastic booth location and presentation, cleanliness, and helpfulness from all event and building staff, were the key ingredients to the high-end show. To top things off is the outstanding quality of serious, high-end retailers who crowded our booth at AccessoriesTheShow, including large retailers like Stein Mart and Anthropologie. Needless to say, we cannot wait for the next show.”
"Bottom line is that we had an amazing show - AccessoriesTheShow did not disappoint. They brought the buyers out! Our numbers were up from the last show and we are overall really pleased with our experience at AccessoriesTheShow."
