Among IMC's plans are a new Gift + Home CEO Summit, which will target executives in the gift and home industries and offer content that focuses on relevant topics that influence and impact those industries.

Produced by both IMC and Eller Enterprises, the inaugural Gift + Home CEO Summit will take place the last two days of the winter market--Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, 2013. Already IMC has announced that Jon Huntsman, Jr., the former ambassador to China and former presidential contender, and Robert Reich, the former U.S. Secretary of Labor who has served under three administrations, including President Bill Clinton's, will be the featured keynote speakers for the first summit. They will each deliver a 30-minute speech, followed by a Q&A session led by Bob Maricich, CEO, IMC.

Reich will speak on Thursday, Jan. 31, and discuss international currency and geopolitical issues, including the Euro crisis and China's economy. Huntsman will then deliver his speech on Friday, Feb. 1, and talk about China and how the issues affecting that country, such as labor and currency, impact attendees.

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
