This season, POOL is heading back to the main level (as it should be) in the same location it was in February 2016, right next to the main entrance of PROJECT. This shift will allow higher retailer crossover traffic, a more efficient shopping experience all on one level, and even further brand visibility.


This season we are over the moon (or Pacific) excited about our newest show floor destination called Japan Shop. For the first time ever, in partnership with M-Cross International Corporation, POOL will host an area strictly for brands traveling from Japan, featuring as many as 10 new brands!


Next Level is getting even bigger and better at POOL! They will be sponsoring the photo booth activation, an interactive charging lounge, providing t-shirts to print live on the show floor, and powering up the Opening Night POOLTRADESHOW Party. Phewf!


Tuesday, February 21st | Foundation Room in the Mandalay Bay
Party it up at the Opening Night POOL Party powered by Next Level Apparel. Known to be one of the more eclectic of MAGIC's parties, there will be drinks, dancin', and a whole lot of fun. Complimentary cocktails by Belvedere from 10PM to 11PM! Doors open at 10PM.


Pick up your custom Next Level Apparel t-shirt, screen-printed live on the show floor just for you and your crew by AKA. Designs feature the top 5 designs submitted by the brands of POOL!


Because who doesn't love a good photo opp. Next Level will be hosting a festive and funky photobooth with props for everyone to show us their social side ot their #OOTD. We're talking GIFs and Boomerangs too! Share on social or print using our printing kiosk. Say cheese!


Stop by the Next Level Apparel charging loung if you need a little boost. Take a load off, charge up, and map out the rest of your plan for shopping the floor.


Watch the artists from Curbside paint live in the POOLTRADESHOW lounge and be inspired.

A show section treasured by many that is always a crowd pleaser. Cash & Carry is the only section at MAGIC that allows point of purchase sales as well as wholesale ordering. 

Fill your shelves with these brands and shop for yourself too for a little instant gratification. 

C'mon get happy! Meet us and the POOL community for a drink (or 2) on us, with cocktails provided by Belvedere Unfiltered.

Find us at the bar Tuesday and Wednesday from 4-5PM. 


Let the games begin and show us what you're made of! The experts from POOL will be scoping the floor for the best designed and merchandised booth in POOL and the top pick will recieve a complimentary booth at the August 2017 show for a job well done. Only booths abiding to the rules and regulations will be considered, and the winner will be presented on the last day of the show, February 23rd.
