Gift and Home Decor Temporaries Expand in Vegas
November 4, 2013,
LAS VEGAS-International Market Centers announced that it is continuing a multi-phase, strategic expansion of its temporary gift and home decor exhibition space in Building C during the Winter 2014 Las Vegas Market, adding three new themed product sections--Veranda, which spotlights outdoor and casual home furnishings on C5; Gallery, a showcase of better home textiles resources, also on C5; and Fashion, an assemblage of personal care and fashion accessories on C11. The Winter Las Vegas Market runs Jan. 26-30, 2014, at World Market Center Las Vegas.
"These three new categories of temporary exhibits are a continuation of the Las Vegas Market's overall expansion of better gift and home decor suppliers," said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Decor, International Market Centers. "Building C will now offer buyers access to 13 unique and distinctly themed product categories of temporary exhibitors, creating additional synergies between permanent showrooms and related temporary resources and furthering our position as the leading home furnishings and gift market in western U.S."
The launch of three new themed categories is designed to both add depth to the temporary exhibits as well as facilitate cross-category shopping, and represents a significant step towards full occupancy in Building C. Temporary exhibition space on floors C1, C5, C11 now will be in excess of 90,000 square feet and will offer more than 325 temporary exhibitors plus an array of free, fun networking and hospitality events during market.
