The Las Vegas Market has opened registration for the summer market. The market runs July 30 to August 3 at the Las Vegas World Market Center.
With a record 4,000-plus lines on display, according to show host International Market Centers, the event will feature the largest ever number of resources in its history, with greater breadth and depth as well as exclusive collections across all categories. The summer market also features exclusive trend programming including Ahead of the Curve and First Look, in addition to special events such as the Seventh Annual Up on the Roof Gift for Life fundraiser, the ANDYZ Design Awards and first-ever Gift + Stationery 40 Under 40 Awards.
Other market highlights include continued expansion of gift, home décor and furniture resources in both permanent showrooms and temporary exhibit spaces. Within gift, IMC stated that it expects targeted growth in housewares and specialty tabletop, lifestyle and seasonal gifts, and handmade/artisanal products across all categories as well as a continued focus on better home décor goods and ongoing development of casual and outdoor offerings in furniture. Among temporary exhibition spaces, B2 Home Furnishings sold out with a record number of companies participating. Market attendees will find new exhibitors in the casual temporaries on C13, and another record-breaking number of gift and home décor exhibitors showcased across the categories featured in The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market including gift, home, design, handmade and discoveries.
