Las Vegas Market Announces 1,300+ Resources for Upcoming Summer Market
Las Vegas Market has announced that to-date, more than 1,300 furniture, home décor and gift resources, collectively among 200+ showrooms, have committed to open for Summer 2020 Las Vegas Market, running Aug. 30 – Sept. 3, 2020.
“We are delighted to offer buyers and designers a safe place to shop and source,” said Bob Maricich, IMC CEO. “These resources, combined with a new slate of enhanced digital tools, will create a robust sourcing opportunity to help our industry get back to business.”
More than 40 percent of the Las Vegas Market’s showrooms will be open for business at Summer Market. Notable confirmed showrooms across the gift and home spectrum include: Abbyson; Aico; Anne McGilvray & Company; Arteriors; Best of Show; Burton + Burton; Capel Rugs; Cheers/Man-Wah; Four Hands; Ivystone; Just Got 2 Have It!; Leftbank Art; Norwalk Furniture; and Sunny Designs, among others.
To help buyers discover new product and prepare for market, Las Vegas Market has rolled out new digital tools and enhanced filters for its online Exhibitor Directory. The filters identify showrooms which are open for Summer 2020 Market, exhibitors with ShopZio-enabled B2B ecommerce capabilities and tenants with 3D showroom tours. To date, there are 192 ShopZio-enabled exhibitors and 57 tenants with 3D showrooms in the Exhibitor Directory.
Additionally, a full catalog of the 20+ Las Vegas Market webinars offered in the lead-up to summer market is available at https://www.lasvegasmarket.com/about/webinars.
This summer, Las Vegas Market showrooms will be asked to follow IMC’s Together Safely protocols including the required use of personal protective equipment (PPE), temporal monitoring, social distancing, occupancy control, hand sanitizing/cleansing and significantly enhanced housekeeping. Additionally, IMC has instituted new registration requirements this summer, including contactless badging, phased access and capacity limitations. Pre-registration for Summer Market, which is mandatory, is available here. To read the full Together Safely plan, go to www.TogetherSafely.com.
“We’re encouraged by the enforcement of IMC’s Together Safely protocols during Atlanta Market with many showrooms adopting similar safety and traffic measures,” Maricich explained. “These factors have led a number of undecided exhibitors, including Crestview Collection and Zuo Modern, to open for Las Vegas Market.”
