This year, SwimShow will host its first Collection area strategically placed in the middle of the show floor. The Collection is a curated fashion environment created for discovering the best emerging and established swimwear designer brands in the industry. The modern and polished platform has been created to emphasize each individual brand’s identity with the focus on the product. Buyers will have an opportunity to engage with brands in a one-on-one unique intimate environment that will allow them to gather personal insights into the collections.  Retailers are invited to experience this beautifully encased luxury oasis, while enjoying champagne butler service, a VIP lounge area, free access to Wi-Fi (also available throughout the tradeshow). "SwimShow is constantly adapting and improving to better meet the needs of our attendees and exhibitors, and The Collection is the latest example of these efforts," Judy Stein, executive director, SwimShow said. "This newly designed area will cultivate a new shopping experience on the Show Floor."
