Gulf Coast Gift Show Shifts Dates

UrbanExpositionsATLANTA-The Gulf Coast Gift Show will shift to a Wednesday-Friday opening pattern for its next edition, which is scheduled for Oct. 22-24.

The show will also move from its previous location, the Edgewater Beach Resort Conference Center in Panama City Beach, Fla., to the Boardwalk Beach Resort in the same community. The latter was the show's location for many years. According to Urban Expositions, the Gulf Coast Gift Show's manager, the return to the Boardwalk Beach Resort will put exhibitors and attendees at the heart of Panama City Beach's beach front, restaurants and entertainment venues.

Among the product categories to be displayed at the show will be souvenirs, beach items, resort wear, T-shirts, general giftware, logo products, fashion accessories, shell items, coastal- and nautical-themed products, toys and games.

Urban Expositions has also negotiated discounted hotel and condominium rates at the Boardwalk Beach Resort. Retailers planning to attend the show can call the resort at 800-224-4853 for reservations. Attendees must preregister and attend to qualify for the discounted rates.
