2022 by Laurie Northington in Business Strategy, Designer Weekly, Industry
Expansion in resources and programming is positioning Las Vegas Market as Summer 2022’s premier opportunity to source top furniture, gift and décor with new product from top lines complemented by engaging education and events July 24-28, 2022 at World Market Center Las Vegas.
“Buyers love Las Vegas Market for the total cross-merchandise buying from must-have lines,” said Bob Maricich, International Market Centers (IMC) CEO. “These robust discovery opportunities combined with proprietary programming and a celebratory atmosphere will create a market like none other this summer.”
Las Vegas Market will offer thousands of furniture, gift and décor resources in hundreds of permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits across four buildings on the World Market Center Las Vegas campus – Buildings A, B and C and the Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas.
Growth is anticipated across all verticals. In furniture – offered on 31 floors in Buildings A and B -- continued growth in bedding further strengthens Las Vegas Market as The national bedding market. Designer-focused décor resources presented on 13 floors in Buildings A, B and C grow with new-to-Las-Vegas brands and expansions by existing resources showing more accent furniture, lighting, rugs and wall décor. In gift – presented by branded showrooms and top west coast sales agencies on seven floors in Building C – lifestyle offerings grow alongside specialty categories like gourmet/ housewares and toys.
Las Vegas Market’s temporary exhibits will fill the Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas with their largest presentation to date. Hundreds of brands will show in six categories: Design, Gift, Immediate Delivery (Cash & Carry) Handmade, Home and Luxe plus a new pavilion for values-based brands connected with IMC’s acquisition of the Dough network.
A full list of Las Vegas Market exhibitors is at LasVegasMarket.com/exhibitor/exhibitor-directory.
The Summer 2022 Las Vegas Market will be buzzing with a full roster of must-see seminars tailored to west coast buyers anchored by IMC’s proprietary FIRST LOOK trend program. The to-be-announced programming will feature thought leader presentations and gatherings including a market kickoff celebration in the courtyard and the return of floor parties. Also on tap are product displays, photo-ops and more.
Las Vegas Market’s social media – @LasVegasMarket – will again feature new product introductions via Market Snapshot before market and a new class of “Market Pros” will take over the pages to share favorite finds during market.
JuniperMarket by IMC – the industry’s newest B2B wholesale buying platform – will be at the heart of the market welcoming buyers to the JuniperMarket Preview Pod in the courtyard for a dynamic visual overview of the platform and the opportunity to sign-up. JuniperMarket also will offer photo ops, product displays and giveaways throughout the market. Sellers are invited to visit the Juniper showroom (C174) to sign up and start selling on JuniperMarket and to learn more about the JuniperCommerce suite of SaaS tools which empower sales teams, streamline product data management and deliver real-time visibility across channels.
