APHA's Trade Show is Bursting at the Seams
Fort Worth, Texas - With four times the space and more than 100 exhibitors, the American Paint Horse Association's Colors of the West Trade Show and Exhibition has more to offer this year than ever before. Not only does the trade show have a new name, but it is now located in the Amon Carter Exhibit Hall. There it can accomodate the anticipated attendance and tremendous growth in exhibitors.
The trade show is held in conjunction with APHA's World Championship Show, which runs July 4-13 at Will Rogers Equestrian Center in Fort Worth, Texas.
"Shoppers will find merchandise from a wide variety of well-known exhibitors," said Gina Phipps, Trade Show Coordinator. "They will find everything equine-related from trailers to tack and clothing to farm supplies. This shopper's extravaganza will offer hard to find products that are not readily available in most area."
Visitors can buy popular items such as horse care products, nutritional aids, tack, clothing, silver jewelry, and enough information to put together an entire horse program, all in one stop.
A big screen television in the concession area will feature live competition from the John Justin Arena so shoppers can keep up with their favorite horse show exhibitors. In addition, artist Earl Kuhn of Medicine Lodge, Kansas, will be on hand Saturday, July 5, to autograph the commemorative World Show posters, "Perfect Partners."
Make plans now to attend the Colors of the West Trade Show and Exhibition. For more information, contact Gina Phipps at the APHA at P.O. Box 961023, Fort Worth, Texas 76161-0023 or call 817/439-3400, extension 331.
