Las Vegas Market Reports Major Growth in Temp Exhibits
Las Vegas Market announced yesterday that temporary gift and home décor exhibits are expected to hit an all-time high this summer, with more than 500 exhibitors showing in The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market, July 31-August 4, 2016. The Market’s highest-ever rate of early renewals and the addition of new companies, has resulted in gains across all five temporary gift and home décor categories.
Of particular note, is the early sell-out of HANDMADE, the expected sell-out of GIFT, and rapid expansion of DESIGN, HOME and DISCOVERIES. The planned launch of three new showcase areas is also generating quite a bit of excitement: BHome, a new luxury-focused category within HOME; Artisanal LA, a new pop-up show featuring Los Angeles-based artisanal products and producers; and Trading Post 1908, a new pop-up collection of vintage and handmade products.
“The unparalleled rate of gift and home décor temporary renewals, and robust early leasing activity, signals Market strength and customer satisfaction. As Las Vegas Market exhibitor ROI steadily increases, more and more new companies are seeking access to our large, and growing, retail audience from western states,” said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers. “As the leading furniture, home decor and gift destination in the western United States, the Summer 2016 Las Vegas Market promises to be bigger and more exciting than ever before.”
