As we wrap up our trip to the Big Apple (NYC) and sunny LA we want to take you on a behind-the-scenes look at our visit to the Active Collective Tradeshow over the past 2 weeks.
First up... NYC! Located at the heart of the Fashion Capitol of North America, the Metropolitan Pavilion, our Founder Melissa and Sales Manager's Izzy and Emily had a blast showcasing our new Varsity Collection as well as Spring/Summer 23 indent to perspective buyers in the Big Apple.
"The vibe was sophisticated and intimate in NYC. It was great to connect with some of the largest retail giants and have discussions about how we can work together. There were so many like-minded, driven businesses and buyers; it was a fabulous place to network," said Izzy, National Sales Manager.
Then it was off to LA to the gorgeous Pasea Hotel and Spa - a beachfront resort and spa in sunny, Southern California for the second Active Collective show. LA was laid back luxury at its finest, and Melissa, Izzy and Emily enjoyed hosting meetings with a stunning beach backdrop.
"The LA expo was so much fun! Everyone was super happy and upbeat (I think the sunshine always makes people happier), and just excited to be there. We had so much interest, specifically in our eco products, and it was just great to be in the orbit of other people passionate about the industry," said Emily, International Sales Manager.
"It was such a fantastic couple of weeks. Although I love the Big Apple, the LA expo had a real buzz to it. The beach side location; all the buyers flowing through and all the attention the MoveActive stand was getting was brilliant. I also loved seeing all the other Aussie brands exhibiting like Tully Lou and PE Nation. Izzy and Emily had a busy few days and did a great job," said Melissa, Director.
