Metal and Smith is an event for designers who seek quality interactions in a controlled venue. The antithesis of trade shows, our approach is to selectively invite members of the retail and editorial community who have the potential to change the course of our Exhibitors collections.
For those brands accustomed to the trade show circuit we want to clearly emphasize our #notatradeshow point of view which is a large part of our appeal. To us a non-open door policy means a reduction in the amount of bodies, but an increased level of quality in those attending.
Expectations vary based on the individual, but as Event Producers our chief goal is to create a chic and modern atmosphere, punctuated by luxury touches, that encourages our Invited Guests to slow down, engage, and do business with our Exhibitors.
