Jeff Hacker, Life Gear
“A Halloween show at the end of January is perfectly timed for this industry... Rubie's, Secret Wishes, Charades, Forum Novelties, Delicious Sexywear and The Highest Heel will be in Houston. We're excited Houston will be the venue for Rubie's Party.”
Howard Beige, Rubie's Costume Company
"Houston is THE place to be - this is where the industry is coming to shop."
David Spiegel, RG Costumes
"This is the show we come to! It has worked out great for us - the timing, hospitality, accommodations, the buyers are here - it's wonderful for us."
Janet Teller, Dreamgirl
“We are excited about the early show in Houston. The timing and location are perfect--our buying staff will be there.”
Barry Morin, Party City Corporation
"The facility is phenomenal...totally up to date. The weather is wonderful. At this time of year in other cities, I am hearing it's between 5 and 7 degrees. And to have these buying groups here (PCA, PFA, NCA), who normally have three different shows, makes this a very efficient option for us."
