Business Journals awarded TSW's fastest 50 for AccessoriesTheShow
Jan '09
For the second year in a row, AccessoriesTheShow and Moda Manhattan have been recognized as two of the "50 Fastest-Growing Shows," by Tradeshow Week -- the leading voice of the exhibition industry. AccessoriesTheShow received two awards for its January and August exhibitions, where as Moda Manhattan received three for its January, August and May shows. The prestigious awards were measured on the percentage of growth and total net square footage of growth from 2005 to 2007.

Leaders in the women's fashion industry, AccessoriesTheShow is one of the world's largest all-accessory trade exhibitions and Moda Manhattan is a well recognized bridge to designer Ready-To-Wear trade exhibition. Together, AccessoriesTheShow, re-launched in 2001 and Moda Manhattan, launched in 2002, have continuously grown in size over the years, tripling the amount of exhibitor space to 150,000 net square feet, and bringing in crowds of over 14,000 attendees. The overall success of the shows coupled with a noticeable hole in the market compelled Business Journals Inc., a multi-media company that owns and produces AccessoriesTheShow and Moda Manhattan, to acquire two additional exhibitions, Fame in 2001, a Junior/Young Contemporary fashion trade show, and MRket in 2007, a high-end menswear show in Las Vegas.

Britton Jones, President and CEO of Business Journals, Inc., accepted the awards at the TSW Fastest 50 annual event in Baltimore. "My favorite thing about the show is the exhilaration that comes from producing a great show and helping exhibitors grow their businesses," says Britton Jones, who also led a conference as the SISO chairman at the TSW event.

AccessoriesTheShow and Moda Manhattan tradeshows are produced concurrently with the fashion markets, five times per year in New York City. AccessoriesTheShow and Moda Manhattan offers retailers with over 1,800 lines of juried accessories, and over 500 collections of ready-to-wear apparel in well over thirty classifications. Held in the premiere venue in New York City, The Jacob K. Javits Center, AccessoriesTheShow and Moda Manhattan offers its attendees state-of-the art exhibit design and amenities, conveniently located in the fashion capital of the world. AccessoriesTheShow and Moda Las Vegas also run twice per year in Las Vegas, catering to the West Coast fashion market.

Business Journals, Inc. is a business media company that produces the nationally recognized b2b publications MR Magazine and Accessories Magazine, plus AccessoriesTheShow, Moda Manhattan, Fame and MRket tradeshows. In 2008, Business Journals, Inc. will produce 19 tradeshows in both New York and Las Vegas.
