Las Vegas Market has planned a new Gourmet Insights Networking Summit scheduled for Aug. 4, 2015. According to the market, the half-day educational program complements the launch of the new C11 permanent showroom floor for gourmet housewares, tabletop, gift and specialty food, at the forthcoming show, running Aug. 2 to Aug. 6, 2015.
“Las Vegas Market will extend its new gourmet offerings for independent housewares retailers beyond exhibits to also include education, and networking opportunities,” said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers.
To further the endeavor, Las Vegas Market also has forged retail partnerships with Gourmet Catalog and HTI Buying Group for the August 2015 launch of C11.
HTI Buying Group leadership has announced that it will be available at the Las Vegas Market C11 gourmet housewares floor launch this summer for consulting, product scouting, and guidance. The company is located in showroom C1142 from August 2-6.
HTI retail members will receive Vendor Specials, Las Vegas Market maps, HTI Program information, Vendor Visit Card and more, and have an opportunity to walk the show with buying group president KC Lapiana on Tuesday, August 4.
