The Best Route to the U.S. Gift Market.

In the United States, gifts and decorative accessories are a $70 billion market. SOURCES was created to help businesses like your's profit from it.

SOURCES LA presented alongside the California Gift Show® is a major global marketplace—a tremendous opportunity for non-U.S. manufacturers to connect with thousands of wholesalers, importers, volume buyers, manufacturers and product designers from major North American companies.

Presented alongside the largest and most comprehensive gift show in the Western United States, SOURCES affords unparalleled exposure to leading importers, distributors, manufacturers, designers and volume retailers looking for offshore resources.

The California Gift show draws more than 30,000 attendees from 20,000 businesses, including specialty and department stores, designers, importers and distributors of home products, mail order catalogs, museums and galleries. More than 1,000 have sales volumes in excess of $1 million. In addition, the Show features 1,700 exhibiting companies, hundreds of which are importers or are presently manufacturing offshore.

The California Gift Show attracts a broad range of buyers including mass merchants, catalogues, specialty chains, hotels, theme parks, museum stores and galleries. Whether looking to direct import merchandise or develop product with overseas manufacturers or artisans, these retailers are capable of doing business with you.

Here’s just a sample of buyers that will be walking the Show:
