It is difficult enough that FFANY and WSA show dates overlap this February (2-4). But when three shoe shows (FFANY, WSA and Outdoor Retailer) all had overlapping dates for this August, something had to be done. WSA show organizers have decided to break up the logjam by moving its show dates from August 3-5 to 9-11 at the Sands Expo and The Venetian in Las Vegas. FFANY will be held August 3-5 in New York and the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City, UT, runs August 3-6—the new dates moving from its previous July dates to address the needs of the paddlesports market.
