Press Release

CALA Vegas Set to Debut During Las Vegas Market Week This August

 

Veteran trade-show producer Gerry Murtagh seeks to provide a different experience for exhibitors and buyers during MAGIC

 

 VENICE, CA—CALA Shows Inc., the contemporary apparel show best known for its five-times-yearly San Francisco trade event at Fort Mason Center, confirms the addition this August of CALA Vegas, which will be located at the Hard Rock Hotel Ballroom and runs simultaneously with the other Vegas shows.

 

President and owner Gerry Murtagh plans to build on the popularity of his perennially sold-out San Francisco show as “a great platform for new and emerging vendors to showcase their product in a strategically curated show featuring the best contemporary brands in the industry.” CALA Vegas will take place August 12–13, staying open the first night until 8 p.m. to accommodate late shoppers.

 

CALA Vegas plans to set itself apart from the already busy Las Vegas apparel exhibition scene with a distinctive all-inclusive package of free hotel rooms at the fashionable boutique Hard Rock Hotel plus fully catered complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres passed by waiters during show hours. Other amenities will include free Wi-Fi, drayage, and booth power.

 

With the ballroom show space located only feet from the hotel elevators, and Uber and shuttle drop-off right outside the doors, exhibitors and buyers can avoid much of the usual traffic and congestion of trade-show season. The Hard Rock is also located less than ten minutes from the Las Vegas Convention Center.

 

The 50,000-sq.-ft. CALA Vegas show floor will be set up similar in style to its Fort Mason counterpart, Murtagh explains, with uniform open booths and “every exhibitor showing off the same playing field. The three-story booths of the ’90s are all a thing of the past.”

 

“My CALA exhibitors and buyers are looking for an intimate, efficient, easy-to-navigate environment,” he says. “Exhibitors are there to write orders. And we plan on spoiling our buyers with the best complimentary food and cocktails, with champagne in flutes brought straight to the booths.” Murtagh expects the show to sell out quickly. He plans to double the exhibition space for February 2020.

 

“This is Vegas made easy, efficient, and profitable,” he says. “CALA Vegas will grow to be a solid alternative to UBM.
