The Bluegrass Buyer’s Market is organized by Silver Lining Productions Inc. for the Kentucky Shoe Travelers Association.

Our History & Our Future

This well-established regional show began as a footwear market known as the Kentucky Shoe Mart and enjoyed many years or strong sales from loyal buyers. To better serve an evolving industry, are pleased to announce our transition to a multi-category market which will showcase not only footwear but also apparel, accessories, jewelry, gits, and home décor. We enter this new era with appreciation of our history and great excitement for the future!

The Bluegrass Buyer’s Market is a Regional B2B Trade Show

This is a private wholesale trade show event that is not open to the general public. Entry is allowed only to qualifying exhibitors and retailers. Exhibitors receive a buyer’s list of all registered attendees after each show.

This is an order-writing show only, where the items are shipped at a later date directly from the manufacturer. There is no “cash and carry” business where items are purchased and taken from the exhibitor at the show. Pre-show marketing and advertising efforts are well-rewarded as this is an appointment driven show.

Buyers are our #1 priority!

Here are some services & courtesies we are pleased to offer retail buyers:

  • Buyers are greeted with a warm welcome & efficient registration
  • Complimentary Coffee & Pastry Bar
  • Complimentary Lunch Buffet for Retail Buyers served daily in the Atrium
  • Retailer’s Lounge in the Atrium, a comfortable place for buyers to relax, work and talk privately
  • Professionally designed & published Bluegrass Buyer’s Market Guide
