SwimShow Trade Show July 2016 Dates

Save the Date: The Swimwear Association of Florida has announced the dates for the highly anticipated SwimShow which will be held July 16-19, 2016 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in the ever trendy South Beach. The 34th annual SwimShow  is the longest running and most prestigious trade show in the swimwear industry. The event brings together the world’s most influential buyers with the most exciting swimwear brands from around the globe.

Due to the upcoming three-year renovation of the Miami Beach Convention Center, SwimShow will incorporate two exhibitions halls and a newly designed area organizers are calling “The Collection.”  The condensed space required the organization to adapt a more stringent selection process guaranteeing a more cohesive and discerning group of exhibitors. Show organizers are encouraging returning exhibitors to confirm their participation and suggesting new brands interested in participating should submit their applications as early as possible.

Known as the event that starts the swimwear season in the US, this essential show provides buyers a warm and business friendly environment, an easy to navigate and enjoyable shopping experience, and plenty of opportunities to network and meet with key suppliers. As per the last several years, SwimShow is expecting to sell-out this summer.

 “Every year we strive to make the show better than the year before. Each year we incorporate new brands, attendees, and events and we will work to maintain and grow our status as the biggest, best, and most important swimwear tradeshow in the world through the renovation,” said SwimShow organizer Judy Stein. “The goal of the show is to marry a sense of fun and success and that recipe works perfectly year after year.”

In addition to the 4-day exhibit in the Miami Beach Convention Center, special events surrounding SwimShow will include seminars on the latest swimwear and lifestyle trends, Swim Lounge Happy Hour, informal modeling, an evening cocktail reception, a daily breakfast bar and High Tea service every afternoon allowing for networking and a slew of very special surprises!

Some of the designer brands to look forward to include 98 Coast Ave., A. Che, Agua Bendita, Agua de Coco, ále by Alessandra, Amuse Society, Badgley Mischka, bella tu, Betsey Johnson, Cecilia Prado Mare, Cynthia Rowley, Despi, Elizabeth Hurley, Faithful the Brand, Gypsy 05, Hipanema, Huit, Karla Colletto, Kopper & Zinc, L*Space by Monica Wise, Lauren Ralph Lauren, Letarte, Luli Fama, Maaji, Maryan Mehlhorn, Melissa Odabash, Mia Marcelle, Milly, Mink Pink, Nanette Lepore, OndadeMar, Paul Smith, Pily Q, Robyn Lawley, Seafolly, Shoshanna, Strong Boalt, Ted Baker,  Trina Turk, and many more.

SwimShow is the premier resource for buyers from all swimwear categories, and caters to designer boutiques, resort shops, specialty stores, surf shops, department stores, mass merchants and more. This global trade show includes buyers, manufacturers, designers, corporate personnel, press, bloggers, fashion consultants, stylists and other fashion industry leaders.
