The annual Value Merchandise Expo returns to New York Jan. 23 to 25, and space for the show is filling up fast. “The New York Show is ahead of schedule with exhibitors booking space weekly,” says Alan Paggao of Value Merchandise Expo LLC. “The balance of buyer and exhibitor participation is the primary driver for a great and profitable trade show experience,” he adds. “Our goal is to create a marketplace where exhibitors and buyers in our industry can positively benefit from attending our shows.”
The idea behind the trade show is to bring flea market vendors and other retailers and wholesalers together to help reignite the challenging economy by providing value priced products into the marketplace. So far, Paggao says, registration is tracking ahead of schedule.
The show hopes to offer compelling reasons for both swap-meet-style vendors and suppliers to attend. “For the exhibitors, we strive to provide them with an affordable booth price, qualified buyers and great service,” Paggao says. “Following these guidelines have provided exhibitors a minimum investment with limited exhibiting issues to focus on why they exhibit at our shows: to sell their products to the buyers.”
Paggao also notes that his company’s experience in having worked with large trade shows in the past helps them anticipate exhibitors’ and vendors’ expectations to overcome this challenging economy. “We have proven success on previous shows and expect the same on future shows to come,” he says.
