Located in one of the world’s most accessible and exciting cities, World Market Center Las Vegas is the largest, fastest-growing new home furnishings trade complex in the world.
Las Vegas Market is its flagship show, drawing a diverse group of 50,000 qualified buyers and other industry professionals from around the globe to each semiannual market. And that number continues to grow.
Momentum continues to build for expansion of better home décor at Las Vegas Market, with planned launch of a new floor of permanent showrooms dedicated to the category at the Summer 2013 Market, July 29-August 2, 2013. In line with this introduction, which comes six months ahead of schedule, International Market Center (IMC) also will reposition its home décor-focused temporary exhibitors to generate dynamic synergies between permanent and temporary resources. “There is increasing momentum for expansion of better home décor resources in the Las Vegas Market,” said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers. “With the summer debut of new home décor showrooms on C4, we will continue to build upon our recent success making concentrations of like resources on B3 and C3. Combined, these three floors will offer 75+ beter home décor vendors in a quarter million square feet.”
Debuting this summer – six months ahead of schedule and at 65% occupancy – C4 will deliver the finest in better home décor and textile resources. Six leading home décor brands have confirmed their intention to anchor the July 2013 debut of C4: Surya (rugs, pillows, throws and art for residential and contract markets) will expand its current Las Vegas showroom presence by nearly 400% into an impressive 30,447 square-foot showroom; Andrew Martin International (UK-based supplier of upholstered sofas and chairs, living room tables, and home decor), will make its U.S. showroom debut in a 10,681 squarefoot showroom shared with Cisco Brothers (furniture crafted in Los Angeles from green materials and building methods); Luna Bella (designers and manufacturers of clocks, accessories, furniture, lighting) will establish its exclusive western states presence in a 2,286 square-foot showroom; Moe’s Home Collection (modern home furnishings featuring top grain leathers, luxurious fabrics, flawless lacquers and stylish lighting) will open a 6,643 square-foot showroom; Palecek (woven furniture, accessories and lighting for retailers, designers, and the hospitality industry) will open a 5,500 square-foot showroom; and TerraSur (manufacturer and distributor of exquisitely crafted furniture from Argentina) will open a 2,300 squarefoot showroom.
In line with this, four home-focused categories of temporary exhibits – HOME, STYLE, TEXTILES and MADE (a new segment featuring artisanal, handmade products) – will relocate to the fifth floor of Building C in July. This beautifully redesigned floor will provide a cohesive collection of the finest in home décor, furnishings, bedding fashions, home textile designs and gifts from more than 300 exhibitors, including confirmed newcomers Adivik Linen Company, Grand Legacy Art, Images2000, Iron Thread Design, ORE International and many others. “In less than 12 months, we have positioned a critical mass of leading home brands on three floors (B3, C3 and C4) of Las Vegas Market, and the growth trend shows no signs of slowing,” said Belshaw. “Our strategy began last July on B3, with the remerchandising of existing better home decor resources, and continued in January on C3, with addition of leading suppliers to the marketplace.
Notable changes on C3 this July will include the expansion of Classic Home (furniture and rugs) and the addition of Low Country Originals (lighting). In addition, home furnishings floor B4 will be sold-out this summer with the addition of JLA (home furnishings) in a 10,000-square-foot showroom.
