Western & English Atlanta is trotting back to town Feb. 28 through March 1, 2009. WEA is the second largest Western show in the United States with more than 450 lines represented. The newest styles from the biggest lines in boots, hats, children’s wear, men’s wear, women’s wear, accessories, jewelry, tack, T-shirts and gifts will be represented on the ample showroom floor. This show promises to bring the fun as well as the leading names in the industry to more than 40,000 feet of show space at the North Atlanta Trade Center in Norcross, Ga.  

At WEA, expect to find the products you need, the food you did not expect and maybe even a raffle prize. WEA has earned a reputation of having the “the best show food,” which includes the vendor-sponsored Saturday night traditional Mexican buffet and Sunday night hors d’oeuvres. Vendors and retailers alike look forward to taking a mid-day break for our hot lunches made in-house daily. Coffee and donuts are sponsored each morning and attendees can enjoy a hospitality suite nightly at the host hotel, LaQuinta Inns and Suites, with refreshments furnished by Budweiser.  For those up for it, free passes to Wild Bill’s country bar and dance club are available. WEA aims to make sure your buying dollars are spent on the newest products for your store.

February WEA will offer a hat-shaping booth, a boot shine booth, and a massage therapist. These educational/entertaining booths as well as the family oriented staff all come together with the goal that the February WEA will be the destination market.  

WEA boasts easy access and free parking as well as reasonably priced and convenient accommodations. For more information on WEA’s past and future shows, visit, or contact Roger Tully at 770-978-8332 or Buyers and guests should pre-register to ensure quick and easy entrance to WEA February 2009.
