“A quick note to say WELL DONE. This as our first time as an exhibitor and I wanted to let you know how beautifully executed this show was.”
“I have to say that the Pacific Northwest Show in Tigard, Oregon, is my show of choice. I work approximately six shows per season, and this is by far my favorite.
It is very well executed and organized. It is also very affordable, as some shows are very
expensive. The emails are very 'hands on' and the information is very accessible. I
receive a response right away when I need something from Linda, the executive director/show producer. The level of communication is the best! I really appreciate the support for the retailers and the sales reps.
The extras are also great -- free giveaways, reduced cost of daily lunches, coffee, cupcakes, beer, and pretzels. The first night with the cocktail hour and mingling, karaoke, and it goes on.
This is a very professionally run show, and the comradery is incomparable. It makes my job fun, and I love seeing my colleagues and retailers having a great experience.
Keep up the great work!”
“Once again, great job with the show. You all are pros. Thank you for running a great organization.”
"The Northwest Market Show is probably my favorite show that I attend. It is very well run --from check-in to check-out it. It is a smooth-running show. I enjoy the treats they have throughout the show, the Saturday get together is usually nice and entertaining. What is great about the show is how many people attend the show. The Northwest Market does a great job in bringing together a nice combination of apparel, shoes and accessories that attracts a lot of buyers to the show. I have always had a good show and nice time at the Northwest Market."
