Las Vegas Market reports growth in temporaries
The Market’s highest-ever rate of renewals and rapid addition of new companies sees major growth in Gift and Home Décor temporary exhibits
Las Vegas Market has announced that temporary gift and home décor exhibits are expected to hit an all-time high this summer, with more than 500 exhibitors showing in The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market, July 31-August 4, 2016.
The Market’s highest-ever rate of early renewals, combined with rapid addition of new companies, has resulted in gains across all five temporary gift and home décor categories – Home, Design, Handmade, Gift and Discoveries: The Antique Vintage Marketplace.
Of particular note for Las Vegas Market’s Summer 2016 gift and home décor temporary exhibits are the early sell-out of Handmade, the expected sell-out of Gift, and rapid expansion of Design, Home and Discoveries.
The planned launch of three new showcase areas also is generating quite a bit of excitement: BHome, a new luxury-focused category within Home; Artisanal LA, a new pop-up show featuring Los Angeles-based artisanal products and producers; and Trading Post 1908, a new pop-up collection of vintage and handmade products.
“The unparalleled rate of gift and home décor temporary renewals, combined with robust early leasing activity, signals Market strength and customer satisfaction.
As Las Vegas Market exhibitor ROI steadily increases, more and more new companies are seeking access to our large, and growing, retail audience from western states,” said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers.
“As the leading furniture, home decor and gift destination in the western United States, the Summer 2016 Las Vegas Market promises to be bigger and more exciting than ever before.”
Summer 2016 marks the first anniversary of The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market, a dramatic, freestanding, climate-controlled temporary trade show space showcasing some 80,000 net sqft of innovative and emerging gift and home décor resources in a vibrant, easy-to-shop, open layout.
Pavilion 1 features Home, Design, Handmade and Gift; Pavilion 2 houses Discoveries: The Antique Vintage Marketplace, a unique resource for one-of-a-kind products including found objects, antiques, repurposed and recycled home décor, furnishings, jewelry and clothing all available for immediate delivery.
Two new speciality segments will debut Pavilion 1 this Summer:
