Launch LA is one of many newer trade show concepts designed to showcase these brands and the hardworking, inventive, daring people behind them. According to the company, Launch LA "was created in order to provide a select group of design-driven brands, influential buyers and media a needed alternative to the trade shows currently available on the West Coast."
Exhibitors are limited to 150, and are chosen by a group of jurors. The first batch of jurors is comprised of Michael Tomson (founder of Gotcha), Jeff Yokoyama (founder of Maui & Sons, Modern Amusement, and Generic Youth), and Josh Rosen, Morgan Collett, and Colin Tunstall (founders of Saturdays NYC).
