“Las Vegas Market truly allows buyers to ‘Discover the Extraordinary’, with more than 4,000 resources presented on one easy-to-shop campus with world-class amenities,” said Robert Maricich, Chief Executive Officer, International Market Centers (IMC). “Las Vegas Market is the most comprehensive gift, furniture and home décor market in the Western U.S., and its breadth and depth will expand again this winter with the opening of a third Pavilion and the first-ever co-location with Artexpo Contemporary Las Vegas.”
Winter 2018 Market highlights include continued expansion of gift, home décor and furniture resources in both permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits. Within gift, targeted growth is expected in housewares and specialty tabletop, as well as in handmade/artisanal products in connection with a new first-time partnership with Aid to Artisans (ATA). Within home décor, there will be a continued focus on better goods, as well as ongoing development of casual and outdoor offerings in the furniture category. Additionally, the top 14 bedding manufacturers will be at Winter 2018 Market, THE nation’s bedding market.
Temporary exhibits at Las Vegas Market continue to expand this winter with the opening of a new 15,000-square-foot Pavilion as well as fresh concentrations of existing gift and home décor resources. In total, the winter 2018 Market will present 500+ temporary gift and home décor exhibitors in three pavilions, totaling 165,000 square feet of exhibit space and another 100+ home furnishings temporaries on B2 and casual temporaries on C13. The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market will also feature the first semiannual Artexpo Contemporary Las Vegas, a national showcase of more than 100 suppliers of fine art, sculpture, wall art, prints, and one-of-a-kind creations — a synergistic category expansion that will appeal to Las Vegas Market’s rapidly growing base of interior designers, architects, hospitality executives, and upscale retailers.
