STYLEMAX ANNOUNCES THE ADDITION OF GIFT

STYLEMAX, known for providing specialty apparel retailers with key brands, is pleased to announce the addition of Gift at STYLEMAX starting in January 2015. This leading women’s apparel and accessory trade show, which runs four times a year and features more than 4,000 resources in over 100,000 square-feet of the Merchandise Mart, will become the go-to resource for Gift & Apparel stores through the addition of this curated gift & home section.  

STYLEMAX will continue to develop the “Gift at STYLEMAX” component in the new year, with a focus on introducing new Gift retailers to the show through the buyer perks program, including discounted parking and hotels. The STYLEMAX sales team is expanding the existing gift component with the addition of cards, candles, umbrellas, frames and other select giftable items. Beckman’s handcrafted section will also remain an important component of the Gift at STYLEMAX area.

Changes in the Gift industry as well as the vacancy of the Gift permanent showrooms on the 13th floor of the Merchandise Mart have prompted STYLEMAX’s absorption of the Chicago Gift Market.
