Attend This June

Throughout the past years, WESA’s Members and Retailers have mentioned not only that the Fall Market is held too late in the year, but also to run a WESA Market concurrently with another show.

We have listened to the feedback and moved the September Market up to June starting in 2019.

By moving to June, the WESA June Market will coincide with the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market for two days, benefitting you as a Retailer as you will be able to shop two Markets while in Denver, CO.

The WESA June Trade Show offers something for everyone. Whether you are a seasoned retailer with many Markets under your belt or a new store owner, you need to attend this Market. Even if you haven’t been to a WESA Fall Market in many years, it’s time to return and see why over 1,000 buyers from across the country and ten foreign countries attended last September's Trade Show.

It’s time to see what you’ve been missing.

The International Western/English Apparel and Equipment Market in September features over 250 exhibitors offering more than 500 distinct product lines in one convenient location.

The June Trade Show lends itself to a more laid back atmosphere where exhibitors have more time to offer one-on-one service. The Trade Show also presents many opportunities to network with Industry peers at various events. Plan to attend the Opening Night Cocktail Reception on Friday night or Roundup at the Rose on Saturday. If you prefer being outdoors, register for the WESA Open Benefit Golf Tournament for a day of golf and networking while supporting our Industry’s future.

Plan to attend the WESA June 2019 Trade Show!

Let the WESA Market help you get Off and Running!

Off and running to rejuvenate your outlook

Rediscover the difference that WESA offers, with something for everyone. Over 250 Exhibitors and 1000 Buyers convene every September to conduct business, network with peers and connect with the Industry.

Relearn techniques for store productivity at a free retailer seminar that includes a free Buyer lunch.

Relax and enjoy face-to-face networking time, at the Opening Night Reception or Roundup at the Rose to visit with Industry peers who share your concerns and goals.

Off and Running to rejuvenate your inventory

Rediscover products you may have missed before while shopping WESA's new one-stop Market in the PAVILION BUILDING! The WESA Trade Show is at the same great location, the Denver Mart. All temporary exhibits are located in the Pavilion. All temporary exhibitors are together, with easy access to WESA's permanent Mart exhibitors.

Revive your enthusiasm in 100,000 square feet of equestrian-related lines including western apparel, tack and equipment, accessories, jewelry, home décor and leathers, the WESA is the largest Fall Trade Show for the Industry.

Off and Running to rejuvenate your lifestyle

Reassess your community spirit and support scholarship funding for Industry youth. The WESA Open Benefit Golf Tournament is a fun way to reaffirm your goals and values for the future generation. All amateurs welcome in support of scholarships for NHSRA and NLBRA!
