INTERWEAVE PRESS ACQUIRES BEAD EXPO, A LEADING INTERNATIONAL BEAD BAZAAR AND SHOW
Loveland, Colo., January 12, 2006: Interweave Press, LLC announced today that it has acquired the assets of Bead Expo from its founder, Recursos de Santa Fe, the owner and operator of the prestigious annual event for the past 14 years. Bead Expo launched its first show in 1992 in Santa Fe, N.M., where it has held the show many times. The expo has also exhibited in Miami, Fla. and San Antonio, Texas. In 2006, the show and bazaar will take place in Charleston, S.C. from May 17-21 at the Charleston Area Convention Center & Embassy Suites Hotel, 5055 International Blvd., North Charleston, S.C.
Interweave Press publishes Beadwork magazine, which is one of my favorite intermediate beading magazines. Pretty exciting that they will now drive the Bead Expo!
