Trade Market Returns to Four Days
"WSA EXPANDS TO TWO VENUES FOR AUGUST 2002 SHOW"

LAS VEGAS, NV (February 2002) - On the heels of a successfully expanded February trade market, World Shoe Association (WSA), organizers of the largest footwear show in the U.S., announced that the August 2002 trade market will return to a four-day show, with exhibition booths at both the Sands Expo Convention Center and the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Show hours will return to Thursdays from 8:30am-6:00pm, Friday and Saturday 9am - 6pm and Sunday from 9am - 4pm.

The August show will take place on two levels of the Sands Expo Center, suites at the Venetian Hotel and the Las Vegas Convention Center's S-1 Hall, the lower level of the convention center's brand new construction.

According to Chris Aiken, executive director of WSA, the two venue show is expected to once again run smoothly. "We expanded to the Las Vegas Convention Center in February," said Aiken, "It was an exciting opportunity to grow the show." The addition of the space at the Las Vegas Convention Center has added more than 100,000 square feet to what is now the largest footwear show in the US.
