Thank you . . .
for your interest in participating in the Southern Christmas Show.
From its beginnings in 1968, the Southern Christmas Show has become a holiday tradition for families and friends throughout the region. One of the best-attended consumer shows in the nation, it annually attracts over 100,000 show guests ready to start the holiday buying season.
Show highlights include a Dickens-style village with over 50 shops, holiday designer rooms, freshly-cut and decorated Christmas trees, miniature scenes and dollhouses, model railroads, and of course, Santa Claus.
Participation in the show is limited to exhibitors selling holiday décor and gifts. It is a retail show, so all exhibits must have cash and carry items.
The show covers a total of 250,000 square feet. Show guests are welcomed by an Olde Towne Village surrounded by arts and craft exhibitors. Commercial and food exhibitors fill two additional halls at The Park Expo and Conference Center.
Exhibit Space Availability
The Southern Christmas Show is always a sold-out event, and maintains a healthy waiting list. However, we are always seeking new exhibitors with products that are new, and unique to the show.
Because we strive to provide show guests with a good variety of holiday décor, crafts, and gifts, the show waiting list consists of applications offering types of products that are already well-represented in the show. If, for instance, you sell jewelry, then no matter how different your jewelry is from what’s already in the show, your chances of being selected are unlikely because the show already has a good selection of jewelry. If you sell a product that’s not already in the show, and is something appropriate to the show, your chances of being accepted are good.
Applying for Exhibit Space
We encourage you to apply for exhibit space using the online application found at the tab on the left side of this page. If you would like to discuss the show prior to applying for space, please give us a call at 800-849-0248.
