UBM’s N.Y. Fashion Shows Add POOLTRADESHOW, BLUE@Intermezzo to Line Up

April 19, 2017

UBM Fashion has added two shows -  POOLTRADESHOW and BLUE@Intermezzo – to its NY Women's May marketplace, for a total of six shows: Accessorie Circuit, Intermezzo Collections, Accessories the Show, Fame and MODA, opening May 7-9 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center

BLUE@Intermezzo, the first-ever platform dedicated to showcasing premium denim brands, will exhibit between the major women's fashion markets. 

"Retailers rely on Intermezzo Collections to circle back around after the larger shows and regional markets to sharpen their assortments, address of-the-moment trends and fill in their inventory to carry them through the rest of the season. BLUE@Intermezzo is the perfect opportunity for denim brands to distribute their replenishment inventory as well as pick up new business," said Peter Berta, director Accessorie Circuit/Intermezzo Collections.

POOLTRADESHOW, described as “a breeding ground for art-inspired and independent fashion brands”, will serve a carefully merchandised show and features everything from unique apparel and accessories to lifestyle, apothecary, home goods and stationary, introducing a unique selection to the east coast market.

Exhibiting brands include YRN, JOYN, Wicked Heathens, and Blue Planet.

"We couldn't be more excited about offering the POOL experience in NY to brands that have not been able to make it to Vegas yet, or to brands looking for a unique and affordable show like ours on the east coast. In addition, retailers will have a fresh opportunity to shop what is happening now and next," said Jason Peskin, POOLTRADESHOW show director.

As an added benefit to UBM brands and retailers, POOLTRADESHOW's SWIMLESSONS now will serve as an educational forum for new and established brands across all UBM Fashion's portfolio.

The educational series presents influential and experienced leaders in the industry sharing knowledge and experiences on how emerging designers can establish themselves in the competitive market.

HERE, hosting responsible meetings and caring for our communities are top priorities. Through its 'Focused on What Matters: Embracing Humanity and Protecting the Planet' philosophy, MGM Resorts commits to creating a more sustainable future, while striving to make an impact in the lives of employees, guests, and the communities in which it operates. Water Stewardship Efforts MGM Resorts understands the importance of using water efficiently, especially in the desert destination of Las Vegas. Conserving water has always been part of the mission, but MGM Resorts has expanded its ambition into water stewardship. In 2022, MGM Resorts President and CEO Bill Hornbuckle signed the CEO Water Mandate—a UN Global Compact initiative mobilizing business leaders to advance water stewardship. MGM Resorts International was the first gaming company to take this important step. MGM Resorts replaced 200,000 square feet of real grass with drought-tolerant landscaping in Las Vegas. MGM Resorts pledges to reduce water withdrawal intensity by 33% by 2025 and by 35% by 2030. From 2007-2021, use of more than 5.6 billion gallons of water was avoided because of conservation efforts. Caring for One Another MGM Resorts’ Food Donations Program collects and preserves unserved food from conventions held at MGM Resorts properties, then safely donates to food insecure people in the community. Since the program’s launch in 2016, more than 3.7 million meals toward a 2025 goal of 5 million meals have been donated into the community. Donations include: Unserved perishable prepared foods from events Perishable unprepared food from MGM Resorts’ kitchens Nonperishable food items from minibars and warehouses The collaboration with Southern Nevada’s primary food bank, Three Square, has developed the infrastructure needed to safely collect, transport, and store food from MGM Resorts properties in Las Vegas, reducing food waste while serving the community. Fostering Diversity and Inclusion To MGM Resorts, a diverse and talented workforce is essential to success. By cultivating innovative strategies that consider multiple perspectives and viewpoints, the company creates an inclusive workplace culture that benefits its employees and community. MGM Resorts takes pride in being a welcoming home for veterans, individuals with disabilities, people from diverse backgrounds, LGBTQ+ community members, and more. This commitment to inclusion is reflected in the company's recruitment and hiring practices and its social responsibility initiatives. From the workplace to the community, MGM Resorts' commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion remains unwavering, and its efforts continue to create a more equitable and sustainable world for all. MGM Resorts understands its responsibility to contribute to the social and economic progress of the communities in which it operates. HERE, we embrace humanity.
