Formal Markets sells out space for August editions in Atlanta and Las Vegas

Exhibits and on-site experiences are bigger than ever, say organisers of the upcoming editions of Formal Markets in Atlanta and Las Vegas, which aim to provide buyers with two prime opportunities to complete their seasonal purchasing. The exhibitions take place 29 July-2 August at AmericasMart Atlanta and 11-13 August at The Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas.

“Formal Markets offers the most dynamic sourcing experience of the summer, with all resources located under one roof at both Atlanta and Las Vegas locations, affording buyers easy access to top industry suppliers,” said Caron Stover, ANDMORE℠ SVP, Apparel.
