 AUGUST 8-10, 2015 ORLANDO GIFT SHOW, ORLANDO CASH AND CARRY SHOW BRINGS SO MUCH SO CLOSE FOR CENTRAL, NORTHERN FLORIDA RETAILERS
 

ATLANTA, GA (April 21, 2015) – Running August 8-10, 2015, the summer edition of the Orlando Gift Show and Orlando Cash & Carry Show at the Orange County Convention Center’s West Concourse (Hall WD2) is the one-stop resource for central and northern Florida retailers’ ordering needs.  Conveniently located in the center of the state, this popular semi-annual event will deliver a versatile selection of giftware, home accents, and souvenir and resort resources along with a full line-up of buyer services, including daily cash giveaways, new product preview areas and parking rebates.

“Florida retailers depend on the Orlando Gift Show each year because the show’s central location makes it an easy-to-reach, affordable trade show destination to place orders and pick up a wide selection of impulse items in time for their busy season. In addition, show attendees and exhibitors can also benefit from the show’s low hotel rates and take advantage of savings on attraction tickets and dining during their stay this summer,” says Donna Guess, Vice President of Souvenir Shows and Operations, Urban Expositions, managers and producers of the Orlando Gift Show.

Among the highlights for the August 2015 show:
