ARKA will be exhibiting at the Class@ASR Trade Show next week Booth CL108, February 3-4. Our last trade show, AGENDA, was a huge success for ARKA! ARKA opened up new accounts with additional high end boutiques nationwide from the AGENDA Trade Show.
We are also working with over 30 additional buyers that loved our shirts at AGENDA. Additionally, a sales representative approved our line to meet with the buyer of Bloomingdales! We also had over 15 press members interview us, five of which interviewed us on camera as well.
We currently have about 25 upcoming events. We have four show’s coming up in February, starting next week:
1. February 3-4, we are exhibiting at the Class@ASR show, booth CL108, at the San Diego Convention Center.
2. February 16, 17, 18, we will be in Las Vegas during the MAGIC Trade Show. We have collaborated with four other designers and booked a large suite, walking distance from S.L.A.T.E. and Project, at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. We are trying to create a more comfortable lounge type environment with an open bar and music for buyers & press. Additionally, our suite will be open until approximately 10pm, after MAGIC hours. Instead of waiting in the long cab lines, buyers and press could come up to our suite to grab a drink, meet the designers, view their products, and have a good time. We are also discussing a party that will be held in the suite on Thursday February 18. This will also be a cash and carry show as well. The show will be called “The GuerrilLA Show.” The letters “LA” in the word “Guerrilla” is capitalized since we are all LA based apparel companies.
3. February 20-21, we have been invited to take part in a two day retail show in Costa Mesa. The show will be held at the Camp Site, 2937 Bristol St, Costa Mesa. This two day event is sponsored by Foam Magazine and KUCI FM Radio. The show will be held from 1:00pm-8:00pm on 2/20 and 12pm-5pm on 2/21. There are several scheduled performers and events throughout the day, including a bikini fashion show.
4. February 27-28, we will be exhibiting at the Class Trade Show in Santa Monica, at the Santa Monica Convention Center.
We have also collaborated with SoJones.com, one of the highest visited sites, with over 100,000 visitors a month and the worlds first Urban fashion and Streetwear online magazine. We we’re initially featured on their site in August, got featured again at AGENDA, and we made an exclusive shirt offer for them which is posted on their homepage right now. Additionally, we are releasing a limited quantity of a new design, we plan on releasing in the summer, with SoJones logo on it, which is going to be distributed to select buyers at the MAGIC trade show in Las Vegas.
