IGES Offering Free Lodging For Show Buyers
Due to many buyer requests for more weekday shopping, the 2010 International Gift Exposition in the Smokies (IGES) and The Souvenir Super Show (SSS) will open on a Wednesday, running Nov. 3-7. With the overlapping dates of two Tennessee shows – one in Sevierville and one in Gatlinburg – buyers are encouraged to allow extra time to experience two shows for the price and convenience of one trip.
To help celebrate the new Wednesday opening day, IGES will be giving away free lodging for the first three nights of the show, Nov. 2-4, with lucky buyers selected each month through October. Registering for the show in advance automatically enters you and can be done online at www.iges.com or by calling 800-430-7608. Winning buyers names and companies they represent will be posted on the IGES website, with buyers staying at the Wilderness at the Smokies hotel conveniently attached to the Sevierville Events Center.
In addition, the first 200 buyers through the doors of the Sevierville Events Center on Wednesday, Nov. 3 will receive a gift bag filled with samples and coupons from companies exhibiting in the show. The show doors will open at 9 a.m.
