Los Angeles Rug Carpet Show: My Opinion

The first Los Angeles International carpet Show was held from Aug. 30 to September 1, 2009. I visited this show twice and met interesting people and fine rugs. The show was well organized. The merchandise and the rugs were high end art pieces. Although the market was tough and those days were very hot in Los Angeles and the volume of sale might not be at a desirable level, but those participants with whom I talked, seemed to be happy. The organizers are determined to have the show again next year.

I always like to participate in or at least visit the shows in which I have interest. I have attended and participated in many shows and exhibitions around the world in Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Nigeria, Germany, Finland, India, ... to name a few. I have also been one of the organizers and the senior advisers of the Grand Persian Carpet Exhibition and Conference in Tehran which is entering its 18th exhibition life in late September 2009 in Tehran.
