The PCA announced that they are moving the dates of 2024’s trade show to the end of March, from the 22 to 25. Not only have the dates moved, but the location, still in Las Vegas, for the trade show has also moved, and instead of being at the Sands Expo and Convention Center like this year, it will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“From pretty much my first day on the job, I have heard from numerous members that moving the trade show earlier in the year would be better for the annual business cycle. Over the past couple of years, we have sent out several surveys inquiring about the time of year and location, and we held a town hall-style meeting with the membership at last year’s trade show to elicit feedback from our members. Our board has listened and put in some good work to respond to the voice of our membership,” said Scott Pearce, executive director of PCA, in a press release.
“With the move to March, the board really feels that this is an optimal time for the industry as retailers will be able to place orders before the busy season hits and get the new and exclusive products on their shelves when demand is the highest. Plus, we anticipate that many retailers who are not able to attend in summer when business is at its peak will be able to attend our industry’s largest event,” said Greg Zimmerman, president of the PCA Executive Committee.
