The Chicago Collective‘s new Women’s Edition trade show debuts this March, and to kick off the new event, Women’s Edition will also be the feature sponsor for the Collective’s opening night party on February 5th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, at Marshall’s Landing in The Mart.

Bruce Schedler, Vice President of Apparel Trade Shows for the Mart stated, “The Chicago Collective opening night party draws about 800 buyers and manufacturers each season and is one of the most talked about events in the industry. With so many brands and stores at the men’s show that also feature women’s apparel, this is a unique opportunity and format to promote our new Chicago Collective Women’s Edition show.”

Since the newly formatted women’s show takes its cues directly from the very popular men’s show, Schedler added, “We know a higher-level, high-quality trade show experience for women is very much needed right now. In fact, many of our Chicago Collective exhibitors and buyers love our new concept and have already stepped up to support our new women’s show.” He added, “Ideally, we would run both the men’s and women’s shows together, but with limited show space in The Mart, we are not able to make this happen right now.”

The Chicago Collective is known for its diverse range of over 400 exhibitors, its efficient and convenient show floor layout, and highly anticipated events and amenities, including buyer group meetings, happy hours, and more.
