Las Vegas Market has announced a new partnership with HomeWorld Business to host the 12th edition of the Housewares Design Awards during the Winter 2017 Las Vegas Market.
The venerable Housewares Design Awards will recognize excellence in 12 core housewares categories and will introduce a new 13th award recognizing an individual or agency for exceptional product design.
“HomeWorld Business created the Housewares Design Awards in 2003 as the first independently judged design competition focused on the U.S. housewares business, and it has established a high standard for recognizing and promoting housewares design excellence and innovation,” said Peter Giannetti, Editor-in Chief of HomeWorld Business. “HomeWorld Business is excited to launch the next phase of the Housewares Design Awards with the support of the Las Vegas Market, which continues to expand as a resource for housewares products that combine superior styling and performance. The Las Vegas Market is an important Western U.S. hub for the home furnishings and gift trade, and it provides a vibrant setting for showcasing the most inventive new designs in housewares."
“Las Vegas Market is pleased to partner with HomeWorld Business to present the Housewares Design Awards – after its brief hiatus – while we continue our rapid expansion of gift-oriented housewares resources showcased at Las Vegas Market,” 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, Las Vegas Market continually seeks innovative ways to spotlight exceptional products in the industries we serve.”
Las Vegas Market will host an awards presentation ceremony on Tuesday, January 24, 2017, during which winners of the 2017 Housewares Design Awards will be announced and finalists will be recognized. To generate awareness of the upcoming Awards, Las Vegas Market will install a photographic retrospective of past Award-winning products on C11 during the Summer 2016 Market; and a special display spotlighting the 2017 finalist and award-winning products will be featured on C11 during the Winter 2017 Market.
