PHOENIX -- Virgo Publishing announced the dates and locations for the SupplySide East and SupplySide West events in 2004.
SupplySide East will be held May 5-7, 2004, at the Baltimore Convention Center. The show had been held in New Jersey the previous four years, but its growth dictated a move to a larger, more modern facility. The exhibit hall for SupplySide East had sold out each of the previous four years. Exhibit sales for SupplySide East 2004 are well ahead of previous years, with more companies reserving space and many companies taking larger exhibit spaces.
The move to Baltimore will also enable an expansion of the SupplySide education program, additional special events, and greater promotional opportunities for participants.
SupplySide West will be held Sept. 29 - Oct. 1, 2004, at the Venetian Hotel and Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. SupplySide West has been held at this location since 2000 and continues to grow. The show had been held later in the year until SupplySide West 2003, which was moved to early October at the request of exhibitors and attendees.
"Many key decisions related to product development and marketing are made at SupplySide West," said Jon Benninger, director of business development at Virgo Publishing.
"Positioning the show in early October has proven to be very popular because it enables companies to make key decisions prior to the New Year."
