Apparel-industry trade-show organizer Informa Markets Fashion plans to postpone the August edition of its biannual Las Vegas events to provisional dates of September 29-October 1 stemmed from issues due to the COVID-19 pandemic and shifts in this year’s buying season.
Featuring WWDMAGIC, Project and MICAM Americas, the Informa Markets Fashion shows are to be hosted at the Las Vegas Convention Center. When the Informa-branded events open to exhibitors and attendees during the conditional fall dates, there will be noticeable changes that serve the current climate, which necessitates social distancing, crowd control and increased cleaning measures.
The company revealed that a more mindful show-floor layout could include micro markets which will afford smaller, more-personal setting for business. Informa Markets Fashion is also developing an increased digitized approach to its events that will complement its on-site shows, affording greater options for its business-to-business audience.
