I read Shop-Eat-Surf at every opportunity, and I waited too long to sign up for the Executive Edition. It’s timely, relevant and clearly “from the industry, for the industry.

KnowShow nearly doubled in size

February 03, 2012 1:10 PM

 

Our fall and winter show, from January 18 - 20, 2012, was a success.

 

We had just under 1,500 attendees. Of these attendees, there were 750 retailers representing 400 retail locations across Canada. The show's square footage was 85,000 square feet -- nearly double our size from last January, up from 58,000 square feet last January.

 

And there were 125 booths housing more than 300 brands. The expanded size of the show floor impacted the tighter flow of previous shows, but we've received nothing but positive feed back from the majority of brands were consistently booked throughout the show.

 

Beyond the show hours, we had a busy week of social events including a media reception and opening night happy hour on Wednesday Night which included an art show curated by Comune and a musical showcase sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon.

 

In partnership with Quiksilver, we hosted over 150 people for a night of riding and refreshments at Grouse Mountain on Thursday night and packed the house at Fortune Sound Club for Friday's closing party.

 

Here's our video recap:

Our attendees were active in sharing their show experience via Instagram and Twitter, and by searching the hashtag #knwshw on both platforms you can see the show through the eyes of those who were there.
