WSA Show Shifts August Dates

The 2010 trade show calendar continues to shuffle.

The Las Vegas-based WSA Show said last week it was shifting the timing of its August event to avoid overlapping with the New York-based FFANY show. WSA will now be held Aug. 9-11 at the Sands Expo and The Venetian, while FFANY will be held Aug. 3-5 and Magic will be Aug. 17-19 in Las Vegas.

“The Las Vegas exhibition calendar is always complicated, and luckily, WSA was able to make a date change for August 2010,” said ENK founder and chairwoman Elyse Kroll. “As we reinvent our national shoe show … it became apparent that our dates needed to be friendlier, and of paramount importance is that the industry needs to be united and under one roof.”
