Temp Gift and Home Exhibitors Return in Brand New Expo in Las Vegas
“The gift and home temporaries will be a key source of discovery at Las Vegas Market, presenting a variety of market favorites as well as new and emerging brands,” said Scott Eckman, IMC’s chief revenue officer. “Presenting the temporaries in the state-of-the-art facility creates a new experience for Las Vegas Market, combining tradeshow exhibits and showroom connectivity for a seamless shopping experience.”
Over four Market days, the Expo at WMCLV will present hundreds of temporary gift and home exhibits in six updated destinations – Design, Gift, Handmade, Home, Immediate Delivery and Luxe.
Gift, the largest of the six destinations, will feature a collection of traditional and contemporary giftware that includes decorative gifts, tabletop and housewares, gourmet foods, jewelry, apparel, personal care, baby and kids resources, stationery and innovative lifestyle products. Confirmed exhibitors to date include Angel Dear; Chic Chill; The Christmas Place; Hobo Bags; Mierco; Potluck Press; Pura Vida Bracelets and The Stout Company, among others.
Home will present suppliers of accent decor, furniture, textiles, linens and decorative accessories. Craft Collections; Glory Wisdom Corp; Lovinflame and Shima-Peace Waters are among the confirmed exhibitors.
Immediate Delivery will feature a selection of cross-category products available for immediate purchase, including vintage, antiques, jewelry, accessories, gift items, found objects, repurposed and recycled home décor and apparel.

Three curated destinations – Design, Handmade and the new Luxe – will showcase a juried, cross-category assortment of artisan, design-led and luxury products.
Handmade will showcase a curated collection of globally handcrafted and designer-maker artisan products. Albert L. (punkt), Inc. (ornaments, sculptures, signs and home items); Philippa Roberts (women’s jewelry); Peruvian Imports (Peruvian alpaca knitwear) and Shop Jitana (pillows & throws, placemats, vases) are among the confirmed exhibitors.
Design will present a curated collection of contemporary and design-led gift and home décor resources. A few of the confirmed exhibitors to date include Artnwordz (home décor and gifts with words and phrases rescued from damaged atlases, dictionaries and rare sheet music); Cose Nuove (giftware from Scandinavia) and FLIKR Fire (fireplaces fueled by rubbing alcohol).
Luxe, debuting in Las Vegas this winter, will feature a juried showcase of luxury gift, home furnishings and home décor goods. Amara Rugs (area rugs) and Verona Prive Maison (furniture and accent décor) are among the confirmed exhibitors.
The facility’s contiguous alignment with Building C positions it as the gateway to the entire World Market Center campus allowing for a more seamless flow of traffic between the market’s temporary exhibits and permanent showrooms. For Winter Market, the exhibit floor layout will be adjusted for social distancing protocols and include one-way aisles. The lobby of the Expo at WMCLV also provides one centrally located arrival area for exhibitor and attendee registration and safety screenings, required as part of IMC’s Together Safely protocols.
Dates for the 2021 Winter Market are Sunday, Jan. 24, through Thursday, Jan. 28, with the gift and home temporaries in the Expo at WMCLV from Jan. 24 – Jan. 26 (9 a.m. – 6 p.m.) and on Jan. 27 (9 a.m. – 4 p.m.).; and permanent showrooms open from Jan. 24 – Jan. 27 (8 a.m. – 6 p.m.) and on Jan. 28 (8 a.m. – 4 p.m.).
