Las Vegas Market announced today that its furniture, home décor and gift leasing gains of the past three years are continuing their upward trajectory, with increases in both new and expanded showrooms planned for the upcoming Summer 2015 Las Vegas Market, August 2-6, 2015.
“Las Vegas Market continues to generate substantial momentum throughout the furniture, gift and home décor categories, dramatically increasing the number, diversity and quality of resources,” said Scott Eckman, executive vice president, International Market Centers.
“We are seeing renewed commitments from existing tenants across all categories as well as an increase in high-end resources. August marks our 10th anniversary, as well the third and final phase of our strategic growth plan to position Las Vegas Market as the leading furniture, home décor and gift destination in the western United States. We are proud of the partnerships we have established with our customers and look forward to forging new relationships as we continue to grow and expand in the years to come.”
