Economic concerns aren't dampening spirits as vendors get ready to head to Project.
A flagging economy and a tight trade show schedule are forces conspiring to put a damper on Project, scheduled for Feb. 13 to 15 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas. But the show is bucking the odds with a robust marketplace of some 1,210 men's, women's and accessories vendors and strong retail pre-registration numbers, up nearly 42 percent compared with the August 2007 show, which drew 25,000 attendees.

"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)
