Mission Statement

The Western & English Sales Association (WESA) was organized in 1921, under the corporate name Men’s Apparel Club of Colorado. These WESA founders launched an initial trade show in Denver in January 1922, with the goal of creating a forum where retailers, manufacturers, and sales representatives could conduct business in an atmosphere of fair trade and fellowship.

The International Western/English Apparel & Equipment Markets are the world’s largest trade events for the Equestrian Industry, attracting a constantly growing global audience to WESA’s world-class Markets.

The WESA Board welcomes your thoughts and suggestions. Comment forms are available during all Markets at the WESA Show Office, or feel free to write in after the Market.
