LV Market Announces More Partnerships and Buying Power for Summer Event
Many of the nation’s top associations and buying groups – including newest partners Casual Classics, Good Toy Group and PRESENTer Network – will convene at the Summer Las Vegas Market to network, learn, and shop a fresh selection of the newest cross-category products available.
Representing the home furnishings and gift industries, as well as the interior design community, many associations are hosting educational seminars, tours and other networking events on-site to provide added value to their current members and expose these associations to potential new members.
“Our campus provides the perfect setting for industry associations, from furniture to gift and more, to host member events and offer educational opportunities,” said Dorothy Belshaw, President of Gift and Home Décor, International Market Centers. “We continue to see more and more groups utilizing our campus for national meetings, networking events and conventions. We are committed to partnering with these associations to help them deliver value to their members while also providing them with exposure to our broad network of potential new members both during market and year-round. Also, Las Vegas is one of the most exciting cities in the world, so the “fun factor” is icing on the cake.”
