Key features of the website are a clean and visual design, an engaging user experience with enhanced navigation, and an easy registration platform.

            The CHA MEGA Show is the only event of its kind in North America, serving as the annual gathering of the global arts and crafts and creative industry. The 2016 event will showcase crafting trends and innovations that will drive consumer sales in the year ahead.

            New for 2016, the event will include an extra day of education programming starting on January 7. The education program will continue all day on January 8 and throughout the duration of the Show once the Trade floor opens on January 9.  The CHA MEGA Trade Show floor will run from January 9-12.  New areas are a Special Events Theater, Trending Now Pavilion and Business Solution Center.  Returning Show favorites include the Hot Product Awards and Showcase, Designer Trends Showcase, Independent Retailer Conference, CHA MEGA Show Block Party and CHA Foundation Gala Awards Dinner.
