A look back at 3 incredible days of deals at CHAMPS Orlando 2020
As we near the holiday season and look towards the promise of 2021, we would like to take a moment to reflect on CHAMPS Orlando, our final event of the 2020 season. While 2020 has been an unprecedented year both for our industry and the world at whole, this year CHAMPS Orlando solidified itself as a must visit destination for counterculture within the United States.
After making sure all appropriate precautions were being taken, CHAMPS Orlando opened it’s doors for an incredible 3 days at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center located in beautiful Kissimmee Florida. CHAMPS Orlando prides itself on having the Gaylord Palms as it’s home in the southeast as it’s an incredible 63-acre resort with everything from a ship to a castle located inside of it. Easily one of the most unique venues in the world.
With 6pm quickly approaching on opening day Oct 23rd, exhibitors were anxious to get started as they set the finishing touches on their booths. Buyers from all over the country, equally anxious to stock their stores with the latest goods from around the industry, showed up in droves smashing all of our previous attendance records for a CHAMPS Orlando event. As the doors opened and buyers streamed in, turning all anxiety quickly into drive as reported average sales from vendors were up overall year over year from previous Orlando shows.
