This 2017 show will present materials from South East Asia, the Oceanic Islands, the Middle East, Central and South America, Africa, the Cook and Solomon Islands, Polynesia and Indonesia. Opening Night Gala will include live music, cocktails and other libations, hors d'oeuvres and an opportunity to celebrate, mingle with the exhibitors and have the first opportunity to purchase at the show.
