International Market Centers has declared that the 2021 Winter Las Vegas Market is primed to offer retailers a platform to refresh inventories with new and best-selling products while providing suppliers the chance to meet new and returning buyers.
Registration for the market, which runs January 24 to 28, is open at LasVegasMarket.com.
Market buyers will find a depth and breadth of new, innovative and best-selling products on a campus that features more than 4,300 furniture, gift and home décor resources across three showroom buildings and in the brand-new Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas. The market will feature more than 2,000 furniture lines on 31 floors, more than 2,000 gift resources on seven floors and more than 500 home décor resources on 13 floors of the three World Market Center showroom buildings.
The market will welcome the return of gift and home temporaries to Las Vegas Market following a 2020 summer market hiatus as well as the grand opening of the new Expo building, a 315,000-square-foot facility that will house hundreds of temporary gift and home exhibits as six updated destinations: Design, Gift, Handmade, Home, Immediate Delivery and Luxe.
IMC will offer Las Vegas Market’s programming through digital market channels before and during market. Pre-market educational webinars include the market’s First Look program and a Virtual Showhouse. Webinars will address business practices during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, consumer preferences and current market trends as well. Other website features include robust product discovery via the Las Vegas Market Exhibitor Directory, with category, style and price point search filters. The website links to more than 290 Las Vegas Market exhibitors active on ShopZio, a B2B ecommerce platform powered by IMC_di, IMC’s Digital Innovations division, which allows buyers to shop before, during and after market.
“We’re all ready to get back to business in Las Vegas in 2021,” said Bob Maricich, IMC CEO. “Our customers, our buyers and our facilities, both existing and new, are prepared to come together again to jumpstart the West Coast’s retail year. While our summer 2020 market was smaller than usual, almost 30% of our attendees were first-time visitors to Las Vegas Market, which generated a significant new business opportunity for our tenants. IMC has safely produced eight markets since June, and with each successful show, our industry takes another step forward. Buyers and sellers are eager to reconnect, and we look forward to welcoming them back to our Las Vegas campus in January.”
