Our Story: Year nine and going strong.
Gather was established in 2010 to provide a relaxed atmosphere where buyers can preview lines and write orders without the stress, cost, and time pressures that usually result when attending larger shows. Its communal showroom and regional focus allows reps to forge more satisfying relationships with the buyers, retailers, and their employees.
Our show has quickly become an ever-growing amalgamation of brands with a like-minded aesthetic. In just two years, the show has grown to accommodate over 75 brands at its flagship location in San Francisco’s Japantown.
In 2014, we expanded our collective by launching Gather NW shows in Seattle and Portland.
