The Big Kahuna: Off Season Show for Coastal Souvenir Retailers and Resorts

Oct 13, 2016

Retailers are gearing up for The Grand Strand Gift & Resort Merchandise Show, from Urban Expositions, coming to Myrtle Beach, SC this December 4-7th. This show, known as "The Big Kahuna," is a must-attend event for retailers in the coastal souvenir and resort business.

For 2016, "The Big Kahuna" has dozens of new exhibitors, including The Incredible Sunvisor, Tangerine Temple, Fin Fun Mermaid, and more. Retailers come to see products that are new, exciting, and trending from top selling brands, local designers, and up-and-coming artists. Buyers will find a versatile selection of merchandise tailored to the coastal souvenir business, including beach items, resort wear, t-shirts, giftware, logo products, fashion accessories, shell items, coastal and nautical themed products, toys, games, and more.

The Grand Strand Gift & Resort Merchandise Show is known for its laid back and enjoyable environment. Dates are strategically timed for seasonally low accommodation rates at nearby hotels. The convention center is within walking distance of Broadway at the Beach and plenty of other Myrtle Beach attractions.

This off-season show is an excellent networking opportunity. In addition to registering in advance, scoping out the exhibitor list, and booking appointments with your top vendors, Urban Expositions recommends utilizing social media. Stay up to date with what is happening before, during, and after the show with #GSGIFTSHOW.
