International Market Centers said it expects the temporary gift and home décor exhibits at the summer Las Vegas Market to reach an all-time high. Currently, more than 500 exhibitors are set to take exhibit space in The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market during the show, which will run from July 31 to Aug. 4.
Strong early renewals and the addition of new companies have resulted in gains across all five temporary gift and home décor categories, IMC officials said. The five categories are: Home, Design, Handmade, Gift and Discoveries: The Antique Vintage Marketplace.
The Pavilions will offer three new showcases this summer, 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,” said Dorothy Belshaw, IMC president of gift and home décor. “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.”
