Active Collective began in 2014 as a sub-category on the show floor of the Swim Collective tradeshow in Huntington Beach, California. Active Collective became a standalone trade show in 2015, making it the first and only activewear and athleisure trade show in the United States.
In response to demand from manufacturers and buyers, Active Collective made its east coast debut in early 2017, in New York.
Showcasing over 250 brands, the Active Collective trade show features a wide range of products from the fitness fashion marketplace including active performance, active apparel, yoga fashion apparel, accessories, and footwear. More than 1,000 buyers from the United States and abroad attend each show.
A core theme of the show is quality over quantity, and the show team curates the balance of buyers to brands to represent the best of where fashion meets fitness.
In 2016 Active Collective was acquired by Emerald Expositions, the largest operator of business-to-business trade shows in the United States, with its oldest trade shows dating back over 110 years. The company operates more than 50 trade shows, including 31 of the top 250 trade shows in the country as ranked by TSNN, as well as numerous other events.
Don’t miss out on the industry’s leading active fashion and athleisure trade show, occurring twice annually in Anaheim, California, and twice annually in New York, New York.
