An integral part of the buying cycle, FAME in May brings you the best of Immediate Fall/Winter. You will find over 500 Junior and Young Contemporary RTW lines at the Javits Center May 4-6, 2011 – Wednesday 9am-7pm, Thursday 9am-6pm and Friday 9am-3pm. True-to-form, FAME will present traditional and updated classics along with many new designers and the hottest trends. It has all been edited to spark your customers’ interest and drive sales. You will also continue to enjoy the show’s many outstanding amenities.
Why the mid-week show pattern? One answer: The New York Auto Show. The Auto Show opens on Easter every year and in 2011 Easter is three weeks later. That means The Auto Show, the largest event and revenue draw to the Javits Center and city of New York, is closing on Sunday, May 1 – what should be our first show day. After countless months of negotiations and an extensive outreach to buyers, we have used our considerable clout with the City and our goodwill with the Javits Center to made it possible to maintain the May show during market week and run Wednesday through Friday.
While nobody’s first choice, at the end of all of our outreach to you and a thorough exploration of virtually all conceivable options, your final word was loud and clear and this date pattern is the best solution available to serve your market needs this May.
One silver lining revealed by all of the research we undertook for this May market is just how much you rely on FAME to run your business. We understand and truly appreciate how special our partnership is with you and can count on us to do our utmost to make each and every season at FAME as valuable, productive, exciting and enjoyable as we possibly can.
We greatly value and thank you for your continued support and look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be a very important season for all of us as we continue to maximize the opportunities of an improving economy.
