Default How do I decide between attending MAGIC or POOL?

I am having trouble deciding if my brand is ready to attend MAGIC or POOL in vegas? Our company went live this year and we have already placed our product in multiple stores across the US. Could someone with more insight and experience let me know if it would be more beneficial to swallow the cost and attend one of these trade shows? Also, does anyone know what it costs to attend MAGIC?

Part of me thinks it may be better to save money and market in order to make a bigger impact next year. I really appreciate any input.

Thank you!!

the shows are at the same location, if you talk to the company that puts on the show, I think they will help you pick what show and give you more info

Pool Booth packages start at $3000.00 - Magic starts at $5500.00.

Also don't forget travel costs, hotel, shipping, order forms, brochures/line sheets, and the cost of decorating your booth.

Where are you located because there might be some regional apparel shows close by that wouldn't cost as much.

Thanks MarLai,
This is helpful. I think that we need to wait one more year to establish the brand before heading out there for the show. Would you agree?

We are based out of Boston (there isnt much here regarding apparel trade shows), however we do the majority of our business out of California. If you like our stuff. Send us an e-mail and we will ship you a shirt at half off for your advice!

You should look into the apparel shows in NY - that way you can save on flights and shipping by driving to the shows.

I know there are a bunch of shows throughout the year, someone on here might be able to give you some recommendations for the good NY shows. I've heard of Coterie and Project, and I believe there is a show called Blue as well.
