Urban Expositions seized the opportunity to acquire the California Gift Show in 2013 to accelerate efforts to rebuild the Southern California gift market’s brand as a leading trend, product and style resource. We have and will continue to pour significant resources into bringing a fresh, vibrant show to the region’s substantial buyer base. And it's working. So make plans now to join us!
This show brings together an unparalleled offering of local resources, destination lines and international fare in Kentia and South Halls at the award-winning LA Convention Center. In addition to its easy access and state-of-the-art offerings, the LA Convention Center is just steps away from L.A. Live, the sports/entertainment district surrounding STAPLES Center and the Nokia Theatre. Here you’ll find sports and music venues, night clubs, movie theaters, restaurants and more.
As part of the effort to continue building the revitalized show, we’re bringing you a significantly expanded exhibitor base in nine well-balance product categories, ideally suited to the West Coast retail audience, including Gifts, Design LA, Handcrafted, Personal Style (including Spa), Outdoor Living, Boardwalk, World Style, Vintage, and Jewelry Cash & Carry.

And the word is spreading. Drawn to the fresh, fashion-forward mix that promises to help differentiate and define their stores, the buyers are coming back too. Make plans now to boost your sales as an exhibitor at the Winter 2014 California Gift Show. And see what everyone is talking about.
