Within gift, targeted growth is expected in gourmet, lifestyle, seasonal and artisanal product categories; a remerchandising of better goods is planned for home décor; and within furniture, there will be ongoing development of casual and outdoor offerings, and THE nation’s bedding market will showcase the top 15 bedding manufacturers.
Temporary exhibits at Las Vegas Market will continue to expand this winter, with B2 Home Furnishings temporaries expected to sell-out with a record number of companies; and another record-breaking number of gift and home décor exhibitors showcased in five categories at The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market: Gift, Home, Design, Handmade and DISCOVERIES, The Vintage Antique Marketplace.
