LAS VEGAS-World Market Center Las Vegas has announced a full line-up of social events and receptions that will take place during the Summer 2012 Las Vegas Market later this month.

Kicking off the week, prior to Las Vegas Market's official opening, WMC will host a Rep Appreciation Party on Sunday, July 29 from 12 p.m.- 2 p.m. in the Grand Plaza. Reps can take a break from their preparations and enjoy good food and networking with their peers.

The centerpiece of the week's social events will be the Opening Night Celebration, July 30 at 6 p.m., with the critically acclaimed acro-cabaret variety show Absinthe, which performs nightly under the Tent at Caesars Palace. The evening will be complemented by themed stations offering treats and sweets matched up to the circus-like atmosphere created on the Plaza.

"Our goal is to offer our attendees a total experience, from our world-class showrooms to an efficient shopping experience, to our extraordinary celebrations adding unmistakable hospitality and energy to market week in Las Vegas," said Robert Maricich, president of International Market Centers, parent company of World Market Center Las Vegas. "We are particularly excited about this summer's line-up of social events and expect that our attendees will enjoy both a productive and fun-filled week."
