After what many saw as a final straw of a WSA Show last week (SEW_0931) ENK International LLC announced new dates and venues for the WSA Shows in 2010 and beyond. In February 2010, the three-day WSA show will be held February 2-4 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, NV.  The 2010 summer show will be held under one roof August 3-5 at The Venetian Casino Resort/Sands Expo and Convention Center and will stay at that location through at least the 2012 dates.

“We are very excited to announce these changes in dates and venues, signaling a return to the footwear industry's historical calendar and offering this premier event under a single roof,” said Elyse Kroll, chairman and chief creative officer of ENK.  “Our footwear brands and retailers requested a single venue and earlier show dates and we responded. Realizing that the previous show schedule made it difficult for our exhibitors to effectively manage their supply chains, we set a goal to find dates and venues that benefited our global buyers and sellers. We are very pleased that we are able to support their needs.”

The specific dates are as follows:
February 2-4, 2010 at Mandalay Bay
August 3-5, 2010 at The Venetian/Sands Expo
February 1-3, 2011 at The Venetian/Sands Expo
August 2-4, 2011 at The Venetian/Sands Expo
February 6-8 2012 at The Venetian/Sands Expo
August 1-3, 2012 at The Venetian/Sands Expo
