Las Vegas Market Named to Tradeshow Weekâs Top 200
By Home Furnishings Business in Las Vegas on May 2007
Tradeshow Week magazine has placed the July 2006 Las Vegas Market at number 26 on its 2007 list of the 200 largest U.S. tradeshows. Thats up from number 41 in the 2006 list, when the January show that year made the highest debut appearance on Tradeshow Weeks rankings ever.
We are truly pleased with the distinction of being named to the Top 200 list by Tradeshow Week, said Harvey Dondero, chief executive officer of World Market Center. Receiving such an important distinction in just the year after our inaugural event is reflective of the unprecedented growth we have had as a company and our commitment to emerging as the dominant home furnishings event in the U.S., and making World Market Center the industrys destination internationally.
Only a few dozen major business-to-business tradeshows are launched annually in the U.S., and they rarely make it into the Tradeshow Week 200 ranking of mega shows, said Michael Hughes, associate publisher and director of research services for Tradeshow Week. The Las Vegas Market shows have been some of the most successful event launches in the history of the modern convention and tradeshow industry.
The next Las Vegas Market will take place July 30-August 3, 2007, at World Market Centers Buildings A and B, the Pavilions. Temporary exhibitors will be show at Sands Expo & Convention Center opening on Tuesday, July 31.
