FashionGo, the leading online B2B fashion marketplace, is transforming the wholesale trade industry playbook with its first in-person trade event that will bring their digital platform and community to life in 2022, with the first event location in Palm Springs and later in New York. These locations will be the first in a series of openings as FashionGo plans to launch additional regional locations, optimizing market access and geographies in coming years.
The first wholesale trade event will launch May 3-5 in Palm Springs, California, the very location where the first ever wholesale apparel in-person marketplace, Round Up, the predecessor of the Apparel Guild in California, launched 80 years ago. FashionGo Week Palm Springs will combine the creativity, rich experience, and sense of community of in-person fashion markets with the convenience, speed, and efficiency of FashionGo’s powerful technology and data driven tools.
Led by BluEnsign co-founders Tom Nastos and Scott Chowan, FG Events team was created to pave the way on this groundbreaking FashionGo Week in-person events series. Nastos and Chowan bring decades of experience building and leading fashion tradeshow brands such as Coterie®, MAGIC®, Project® and FN Platform®. Together with their expansive physical events expertise and FashionGo’s over 20 years of know-how and capabilities in B2B and digital experiences and capabilities as well as thousands of brands and close to a million registered buyers, attendees and exhibitors will experience the new era of wholesale.
“We have assembled an experienced and empowered team of innovative creators and connectors who are passionate in their support of the wholesale fashion and lifestyle communities,” said Tom Nastos of FashionGo Events. “Together, we are focused on building a premier portfolio of specialty events, offering new opportunities and solutions that are just right for all of our customers.”
