World Market Center to Launch Cross-Category Showcase for Tabletop, Gifts

LAS VEGAS-Alessi USA and Vietri will join Michael Aram as anchor tenants for the launch of c-ONE, a new cross-category showcase of directional tabletop, gift and home resources in both permanent and temporary presentations at the Gift+Home at Las Vegas Market, July 29-August 2.

In total, c-ONE is expected to present roughly 45 design resources at the World Market Center in Las Vegas, according to International Market Centers, which owns and operates the show.

"c-ONE is shaping up to be an amazing collection of some of the best names in gift and home offerings--together in one dramatic presentation," said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Decor, International Market Centers. "This stellar concentration of key brands on the first floor of World Market Center's Building C will serve as a 'calling card' for better gift and home resources presented throughout the market."

In addition to these permanent showrooms there will be a number of curated temporary presentations. Confirmed participants, to date, include Jonathan Adler, Fatboy USA, Ann Gish, Inc. and Magisso North America.

Other plans for the strategic growth of Gift+Home at the Las Vegas Market this summer include the debut of the Lifestyle Collection on C10, with suppliers of on-trend resources from in-demand lifestyle categories; expansion of sophisticated home decor resources on C4 as an extension of the successful winter 2013 C3 consolidation of better home decor resources; and repositioning of temporary home exhibits (Home, Style, Textiles) to C5 and temporary gift exhibits (Gift, Gourmet, Global, Made, Trend, Vintage and Carry!) to C11 to facilitate synergies between temporary exhibits and permanent showrooms on adjacent floors.
