Las Vegas Market announced yesterday that a grand opening of new permanent exhibit space on C-ONE, its dynamic cross-category showcase of specialty tableware, lifestyle gift and better home décor resources, will result in the addition, expansion, renewal and relocation of leading resources at the Summer 2016 Las Vegas Market.
“Las Vegas Market is committed to reaching ever-greater heights of innovation and aesthetics, and these changes will enable us to better showcase C-ONE’s juried collection of directional gift and home décor resources,” said Dorothy Belshaw, President of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers.
“Since its launch in 2013, C-ONE has featured a stellar concentration of brands on the first floor of Building C many of which were presented in a temporary format. The conversion of these booths to permanent showrooms reflects a long-term commitment to the Las Vegas market and will significantly enhance the merchandising of these exciting lines,” added Belshaw.
The newly installed permanent exhibition space on C-ONE, will feature several leading brands – Abbiamo Tutto, Alessi, Bodrum, MATCH, Nima Oberoi Lunares, Rolf Glass and Skyros Design – which have renewed and expanded in premiere lobby locations – as well as 10 brands debuting in three showrooms new to the floor. Newcomers to C-ONE for summer Market are Eva Solo (Danish-designed home accessories and kitchenware) and JIA Inc. (Chinese-designed cutlery and tableware) in 556 square feet; Fortessa Tableware Solutions/Schott Zweisel (tabletop, housewares and glassware), showcasing five brands – Zwiesel 1872, Schott Zweisel, D&V, Bella Vita, Jenaer Glas – in 1,800 square feet; Reidel Crystal (wine glasses, decanters, glassware, stemware) in 1,300+ square feet; and Spitfire Girl (lifestyle gift and tabletop) in 600 square feet. In addition, La Maisonnette (fine French tabletop, textiles, housewares and home accents) is transitioning from a temporary presentation to a 600 square foot permanent showroom on C-ONE.
Several current C-ONE exhibitors also will expand their showrooms and assortments for Summer 2016. Skyros Designs (tabletop and accessories from Portugal) and Bodrum (linens) will increase by 35 percent to a 2,400-square-foot showroom; and Tamara Childs/Gilder (hand-gilded metallic tableware, gifts, home décor) will expand by 15 percent to a 600-square-foot space.
