Traditionally, the Association hosts two WESA Trade Shows per year; the first in January and the second in September. However, the Association has decided to change its Trade Show schedule to January and August to better accommodate WESA buyers at the Dallas Market Center. The Association has also extended the Trade Show to a 4-day show pattern to allow more time to showcase your newest items, form new business opportunities, while enjoying a great location, superior facility, and dynamic marketplace.
WESA invites you to join the Western and English industry at the WESA Trade Show for education, community, trade and fellowship. The Association thanks you for your support and attendance of the WESA Trade Shows: Where the Industry Meets
