In addition to hitting Las Vegas’ retail and hotel businesses, the ongoing U.S. economic slump is expected to impact Sin City’s trade shows.
With gas and food prices continuing to rise, home values still falling, consumer credit woes persisting and retail sales plummeting nationwide, Las Vegas’ apparel trade shows this month could be feeling the economic pinch in the form of lower than usual buyer attendance and decreased order volume. As stores scale back inventory and take a cautious approach to buying, trade shows, including Project, are bound to see some impact.
