Nine New Exhibitors, Six Expansions Among Vegas Market Headliners
Buoyed by brisk leasing activity in the past six months, Las Vegas Market officials said more than 300,000 square feet of new, expanded and renewed furniture showroom space is on the books for the Summer Market, which takes place July 30-Aug. 3.
Market officials said the latest list includes nine new furniture exhibitors, six expanded showrooms, and lease renewals signed by eight exhibitors.
In addition, officials said the market’s temporary furniture exhibit space on the second floor of Building B was sold out weeks ago.
“Debuts, expansions and renewals by industry-leading suppliers are reflective of the home furnishings industry’s confidence in the state of the industry overall, as well as a strong indication of their commitment to the Las Vegas Market in particular,” said Scott Eckman, president of furniture and home décor leasing and chief strategy officer for International Market Centers.
“No other U.S. market offers such a depth and breadth of key furniture, casual/outdoor and bedding resources, alongside such a wealth of complementary home décor and lifestyle gift offerings.”
Making their debut at the Summer Market are case goods and upholstery supplier Apricot Sofa in 4,409 square feet on B6; foam bedding manufacturer Carpenter in 2,574 square feet on C15; furniture supplier Healthtec in 3,195 square feet on A10; bedding manufacturer Marshall Mattress in 2,384 square feet on B9; bedding resource MLily USA in 5,000 square feet on B9; motion furniture manufacturer Okin in 1,381 square feet on A7; casual and outdoor furniture supplier Seaside Casual in 1,559 square feet on C4; case goods manufacturer Starway, in 3,698 square feet on B6; and as previously announced, high end upholstery and case goods manufacturer Vanguard Furniture, opening its first-ever West Coast showroom in 3,250 square feet on A1.
