Wholesalecrafts.com Announces American Craft Retailers Expo Shows

Wholesalecrafts.com, producers of the American Craft Retailers Expo (ACRE) shows, announced the final ACRE show lineup for 2015, which includes two shows: ACRE Philadelphia, February 14–16, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, and ACRE Las Vegas, May 28–30, at the South Point Hotel Casino and Spa.

“We have strategically decided to focus on just these two ACRE shows in 2015,” said Nancy Vince, president of Wholesalecrafts.com Inc. “We feel that the timing and placement of these two shows proposed the best opportunity for the biggest buyer reach, with each show having a two-show-for-one travel dollar advantage.”

Exhibitors participating in both shows can also have their freight transported from ACRE Philadelphia to ACRE Las Vegas with free storage in the interim.

“Combining our two ACRE shows with the largest wholesale American craft website, www.wholesalecrafts.com, and our quarterly Buyer’s Guides, we will continue our focus to connect retailers with the best of American craft,” Vince said.
