ATTENDEE CHECKLIST & TIPS

Below is a checklist and guidelines to help you better prepare for the show...

PREPARE
  • Make notes on your best-selling styles and best-selling brands
  • Review your merchandise sell-thru and sizes selling
  • Hold a meeting with your staff for their opinions and feedback
  • Spend time talking to your customer about what they would like to see in your store
  • Read up on different fashion magazines for upcoming trends
  • Tear out sheets on items that catch your eye
  • Be a leader not a follower!  Know what is happening and selling in your area by doing your homework!  Shop the local competition making notes on price points and brand names.
  • Plan your o.t.b. (open to buy)
  • Register online for market info
  • Make your market appointments
PACK
  • Re-sale certificate and tax id number
  • Projections, otb and calendar appointments
  • Business cards: keep them with you even during social events
  • Notebook, pens and calculators
  • Order sheets
  • Phone book: you never know who you might have to call when you are far from home
  • Mini stapler to staple cards to order sheets or cards into your notebook
  • Large tote bag for all the line sheets
  • Register online for market info
  • Cell phone and charger
  • Laptop for checking e-mails and working orders at night. Most hotels have a business center that you can check e-mail as well
SCHEDULE
  • Start early
  • Utilize the show directories, digital show planner and MAGIC mobile app to map out your day. Note the booths and vendors you want to see or with whom you have appointments.
  • Walk row by row, floor by floor. You never know what you may find.
  • Don't be shy. If you see a busy booth, ask what time would be good for you to come back.
  • Network: build a group of market friends that you can have lunch or dinner with and share experiences.
  • Set a goal of visiting 10 new vendors per market.
  • Write your order at the show! It can be overwhelming to try to do it when you get back home.
