(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). The International Lingerie Show is moving to the Westgate Hotel (formerly the Las Vegas Hilton) for its April 3-5, 2017 event.
The upcoming show, September 12-14, 2016, will be the last time it is held at the Rio Hotel, its home since the start of the millennium. When we confronted Jeff Yunis, president of Specialty Trade Shows, the owner of ILS, he replied, “I cannot deny what you know.”
“This 3000 plus room hotel has recently been totally refurbished and, as we all know, has great exhibit space. Add to that, the hotel has six better restaurants and lots of other amenities.”
Yunis confirmed that buyers will pay less for rooms than they are now paying at the Rio for nicer rooms.” He added that “exhibitors will see only a very modest increase in costs.” He would not comment on what those who are skipping the upcoming September will have to pay to rejoin the event next April.
ILS sees the move as “the dawn of a new day for the sexy industry. The new facility will offer the opportunity to do more events and to make the show more of a social event to go with the business to business environment.”
Yunis also reported the ILS has a new, redesigned website: www.lvlingerieshow.com. — NM
