Welcome to Online Registration



ACRE™ (American Craft Retailers Expo) Las Vegas is open to the trade only. 

Welcome to ACRE™ (American Craft Retailers Expo) a wholesale trade show with a carefully juried selection of artisans who have a true passion for handmade products and quality craftsmanship. Now in its 11th year, ACRE returns to Las Vegas in a new location at the Las Vegas Convention Center on June 5-7.  The shift in date pattern aligns the ACRE show with the Las Vegas Jewelry Market Week, and the venue change positions us closer with our sister events: Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show and Jewellery Box. This means you have access to more artists and greater opportunities to find unique products for your business. In addition to the handcrafted products you’ll see at ACRE, you’ll have a chance to meet the artists and hear the inspirational stories behind their products.

We have improved our registration process for you to make it simple and seamless
