Yes, we'll be back in the heart of D.C., at a beautiful, state-of-the-art venue that offers a host of amenities, including:

  • On-site dining at Starbucks, and much more!

  • A convenient metro station just steps away

  • Over 2,000 parking spaces in a three-block radius

  • Fabulous hotels, restaurants, shops and attractions within walking distance

What isn't changing is the friendly, stress-free atmosphere this Show is known for!

A bigger, more diverse selection means more ways to generate traffic in your store. Be sure to see:

  • Our expanded At Home, Handmade, General Gift and New Resources divisions

  • The Museum Source, a brand-new, juried division focused on unusual, high-quality, high-margin products
  • Addition of Cash & Carry division this February.

Plus, our new, easier-to-control venue will help us eliminate personal buyers, so the exclusive gifts you discover will be just that — exclusive!

Along with companies returning to the Washington Gift Show after a hiatus, you'll see a greater number of new exhibitors in our New Resources division.

A showcase for first-time exhibitors, New Resources offers gifts, jewelry, crafts, home decor and accessories that will keep you on the leading edge of retail trends — and a step ahead of your competition!

The new Washington Gift Show is focused on the high-end, high-margin products that generate traffic and build profits for your store. Don't miss:

  • More upscale merchandise in the General Gift, At Home and Handmade divisions

  • The Museum Source, a new juried division with products perfect for general gift shops, too

We've listened to what you wanted in a regional gift show. You'll find the quality improving! Come see for yourself!

You wanted the Washington Gift Show to come a little later. So starting this summer, it's changing to an August/February time frame. That means you'll:

  • Have more time to assess last year's sales and understand your needs

  • Buy for the busy fourth quarter without tying up capital all summer

  • Avoid conflicts with other shows during the busy January and July show schedules

  • Know which products have been most successful at the larger, national markets

  • Feel more confident about the weather and your travel plans
