Join Us as an Exhibitor

The Northwest Market Association (NMA) shows are the largest regional markets on the west coast, with over 230 footwear, apparel, lingerie, handbag, gift, jewelry, accessory and children's exhibitors representing over 1,200 lines.  The show provides a one-stop shopping experience for retail stores in the comfortable and attractive setting of the Embassy Suites Hilton Portland Washington Square in Tigard, Oregon.  Sales representatives also enjoy the convenience and intimacy of the hotel, working with both new and existing customers.  The Embassy Suites’ amenities of a complimentary buffet breakfast and evening cocktails with snacks offer the opportunity to socialize with buyers and other reps in a more casual setting.

We receive feedback from both reps and buyers that this is one of their favorite shows in the United States.  There is a true sense of community.  And, our show is well priced and consistently well attended by serious buyers.  JOIN US!  You may exhibit for two days (footwear only), three days or four days (booths only) at each show.  Your space will be assigned based on your product category and show participation days.
