Fine Lines, Enesco Join Las Vegas Lineup
November 25, 2013,
LAS VEGAS-Prominent lifestyle suppliers Fine Lines and Enesco are among the newest exhibitors at International Market Centers' Las Vegas Market in Building C, and others are reopening or expanding their showrooms for the January market.
Multi-line sales agency Fine Lines is marking its 25th anniversary by showcasing its assortment of brands in a new 11,106 square-foot showroom on C10. Enesco, a global leader in gifts, plush toys and home decor, is opening an 11,818 square-foot showroom on C6 to showcase its brands, including its popular Department 56 collection.
"Improved market performance and renewed confidence in the Las Vegas market is helping us to attract the industry's foremost gift and lifestyle brands, major multi-line rep groups and high-profile leaders," said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Decor, International Market Centers. "We continue to make significant progress towards our goals of category enrichment, rapid resource aggregation and accelerated occupancy on existing floors. Overall, we are on track to achieve our three-year goal to reposition Las Vegas Market as the leading home furnishings and gift market in the western U.S."
Enesco CEO Tom Bowles said, "Enesco has not had a physical presence on the West Coast for several years; we know Las Vegas continues to be a growing market, and our Las Vegas showroom will benefit all divisions of Enesco LLC by providing exposure to new customers that don't see our product offering at our other locations."
Other newcomers in the gift category for the market include Gerson, a designer and importer of seasonal merchandise, which is opening a new 6,000 square-foot showroom on C9; and Regal Art and Gifts, a leading supplier of yard art and Christmas ornaments, with a new 2,040 square-foot location on C8.
In addition, existing exhibitors that are expanding include Transpac Imports, which is planning a 200 percent increase to a 9,791 square-foot space on C6.
