The next Lansing Gift Show proudly returns March 4-6, 2018 to the Lansing Center facility in downtown Lansing, Michigan. Since its inception over 10 years ago, the Lansing Show has become The place retailers go to see what’s new, have face time with their reps and take advantage of cash and carry wholesale buying opportunities.

 

Coming off two vigorous spring shows in the last two years, booth space commitments are well ahead of pace as Reps, distributors and manufactures line up to be involved in this market; the main life line to Michigan gift.

 

Lansing is the perfect geographical happy medium. This capitol city is simultaneously convenient to both coastlines of Michigan as well as the greater metro Detroit market. The show literally brings big city lines to the door step of retailers as most are within an hour’s reach of Lansing, making it possible to do a big show-type buying trip in one day.

 

While location and major lines are reasons enough to visit the show, another undercurrent which has contributed to the show’s popularity is its Cash and Carry sales opportunities. While a lot of shows have a cash and carry section or area off to the side, in Lansing, the cash and carry vendors are intermingled amongst the order writing vendors keeping both with in easy reach of the buyer. This liberal policy has allowed for a free and equal commerce feel on the show floor and has resulted in over 35% of the show’s over 100 exhibitors to participating in Cash and Carry.

 

The Lansing Gift Show is over 43,000 square feet of just what Michigan retailers need. Reps committed to booth space for the 2018 show early this year as they noticed their retailers coming off an up tick in summer sales.
