LOS ANGELES — Therese Allen, group show director for all four shows of the MAGIC marketplace, including MAGIC, WWDMAGIC, MAGIC Kids and The Edge, died of breast cancer on Aug. 6. She was 51.
Allen emigrated from Belize in 1976 and began her career at the Woodland Hills, Calif.-based trade show company as an assistant, at a time when MAGIC International was solely a men’s wear show composed exclusively of the West Coast firms that were its owners.
