Las Vegas Market announces dates

The dates for Winter and Summer 2018, 2019 and 2020 Las Vegas Market events have been revealed

Las Vegas Market has announced the dates for Winter and Summer 2018, 2019 and 2020 events, which are in keeping with the current date pattern of late January and July, respectively.

“Based on the positive feedback and continued increased attendance, we are maintaining our existing date schedule to best serve the needs of our customers, who are our primary focus,” says Bob Maricich, chief executive officer of International Market Centers (IMC).

“They avoid conflicts with major markets and allow us to maximise experience for tenants and buyers. This pattern enables us to partner with complementary events in Las Vegas – including ASD for our Summer Market this year – offering an added benefit to attendees at no additional cost.”

The dates are as follows:

2017 (previously announced)
January 22-26
July 30-August 3

2018
January 28- February 1
July 29-August 2

2019

2020

January 26-30
July 26-30

Winter Market 2016 registered the highest attendance numbers in the Market’s 10-year history, with the busiest-ever opening day on record, fueled largely by recent explosive growth in gift and home décor resources, which resulted in gains of 22 per cent in gift buyer attendance and 5 per cent in home décor buyer attendance. The furniture category – with nearly 100% occupancy in furniture showrooms, 95 per cent of the nation’s bedding industry represented, and continued expansion among newly launched casual floors – maintained its strong buyer base. Buyers attended from all 50 states and 77 countries.

Summer Market highlights include the addition of some 40 new tenants in the gift, housewares and home décor categories as well as 50 new furniture companies; concentration of new boutique home décor resources on C5; the targeted expansion of C11 as the industry’s newest destination for gift-oriented housewares, gourmet products, specialty food and tabletop items; continued expansion in casual and outdoor products on C12 and C13; presentation of the top 15 bedding manufacturers; sold out home furnishings temporaries on B2 and expansion of The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market to feature some 500 temporary exhibitors.

Las Vegas Market is the most comprehensive furniture, home décor and gift marketplace in the Western U.S., presenting 3,000+ gift, home décor and furniture resources in an unrivaled market destination. Summer 2016 Las Vegas Market runs July 31-August 4. For more information, visit www.lasvegasmarket.com
