MAGIC is a semi-annual apparel trade show in Las Vegas. What started out as a "Men's Apparel Guild In California" has now grown to encompass women's and children's clothing, accessories, and sourcing. It is one of the largest fashion trade shows in the United States. This year, it takes place the 13th -16th of February. MAGIC exhibitors are divided up by category. For examples, sourcing vendors are located in one area while juniors, for instance, are located in another area. At MAGIC, clothing for Fall/Winter 2011 will be displayed for buyers to choose from. Although most exhibitors are available throughout the trade show to walk-up buyers (and students), some exhibitors' merchandise are available by appointment only.
At MAGIC, there are many relevant industry seminars available. These cover a variety of topics to include e-commerce, branding, globalization, and trend forecasts. There will be events all over Las Vegas hosted by various companies, associations, and organizations for their friends, vendors, clients, and others to attend. One may find out about such events through the MAGIC website, social networking sites such as facebook and twitter, and just word-of-mouth by talking to vendors.
