More than 325 gift, home decor and furniture suppliers – including nearly 90 new-to-market exhibitors - will showcase new products in 105,000 square feet of temporary space in Buildings B and C at the Winter 2014 Las Vegas Market, running from 26-30th January at World Market Center Las Vegas.
The temporary exhibits represent a portion of the nearly 5 million square feet of space within the three buildings that comprise the Las Vegas Market, the most comprehensive furniture, home décor and gift market in the United States. Las Vegas Market is the only major home furnishings market in the Western United States and the fastest growing Gift Market, offering a unique cross-shopping opportunity for retailers and the design trade.
"The realignment of temporary space in Buildings B & C at the Winter 2014 Las Vegas Market is attracting a substantial influx of new exhibitors, bringing not only a wide diversity of merchandise to the industry but also a heightened level of excitement," said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers. "Our gift and home décor temporary exhibit space in Building C is tracking to achieve 20% growth over last market's temporary presentation. This expansion signals the industry's support for the market and further advances our strategic plan to position Las Vegas Market as the leading market in the western U.S. for furniture, home décor and giftware."
To date, temporary exhibits in Building C include 245 companies, including 84 first-time exhibitors and 161 returning exhibitors, in more than 70,000-square-feet of temporary space on three floors, c-ONE, C5 and C11. An additional 40 companies are expected to commit in the weeks leading up to market. Among Building C highlights are the debut of three new themed product category presentations: VERANDA, highlighting outdoor lifestyle merchandise on C5; GALLERY spotlighting better home textiles resources on C5; and FASHION, the first dedicated exhibition area for fashion merchandise, personal care and wellness products and fashion accessories on C11.
Located on the second floor of Building B, the 35,000-square foot Home Furnishings Temporary Exhibits are 99% full and expected to be completely sold out for the January 2014 Las Vegas Market.
