ANME trade show strives for growth

The ANME Trade Show is a wholesale order writing show focused on the army navy surplus, tactical, outdoor and hardware/workwear industries. Held twice a year in Las Vegas., it welcomes visitors from over 40 countries for wholesale deals and closeouts on clothing and gear for their stores.

This August marked the 12th year of the show and, during the three-day event, exhibitors displayed domestic and international military surplus, camping and outdoor equipment, outerwear and workwear clothing, knives, tactical gear, patriotic apparel and dozens of specialty products.

The buyers represented dealers from the army navy, sporting goods, tactical and hardware/farm and fleet stores around the United States. It was clear the buyers came to write orders.

Exhibitors also saw many international buyers, looking to purchase genuine US Military Surplus and military themed clothing for fashion. Alongside the new products in tactical and outdoor, ANME also boasts the largest collection of US and international military surplus wholesalers under one roof.

An exciting addition to ANME Summer was a ‘Hot Show’ supported by exhibitors who were given a minute to pitch hot products at deep discounts. These deals were only available while the exhibitor was on stage. Buyers were eager to take advantage of the deals at the Hot Show. The enthusiasm from this continued throughout the morning as buyers wrote orders on products for their store.

The exhibitors who participated at the Hot Show were busy all-day filling orders and add-ons from that morning. Some buyers even reported that the savings they made at the Hot Show more than paid for their trip.

ANME Winter 2020 will be held from January 19th to 21st at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The Winter Show is the larger of the two events each year with around 125+ exhibitors and over 200 booths.

With SHOT Show starting on the 21st, buyers enjoy the opportunity to hit both shows while they are in town. After the success of the first Hot Show this past summer, management is planning to hold at least two more at ANME Winter featuring deep discount deals on over 50 products.

ANME is a business to business show that allows buyers to both meet new vendors as well as connect with their regular suppliers. This is an order-writing show, which means exhibitors bring special show only deals and the buyers attend eager to write orders on new products for their stores. ANME allows these buyers to have in depth conversations the vendors. Through these conversations, buyers gain more information about new and future products and are able to make orders right then and there.
