SAN DIEGO — There's plenty of change afoot in San Diego's trade show scene, which centers around the Action Sports Retailers Trade Expo and Agenda trade show.
For 2008, beginning with the Jan. 24 to 26 shows at the San Diego Convention Center and San Diego Concourse, respectively, both will adopt Thursday to Saturday schedules to accommodate large chains like Macy's West and Pacific Sunwear that prefer to send buying teams out during the week, as well as smaller stores who need to attend trade shows on weekends. "This will make traffic more consistent over three days, and will eliminate the slow day of Sunday," said ASR show director Andy Tompkins.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
