Las Vegas Market announced today that accelerating growth in temporary exhibits is expected to bring an unprecedented number of high-quality companies to its Summer 2015 edition, eclipsing the offering from previous markets.  Nearly 500 new and returning temporary exhibitors will participate in the upcoming Las Vegas Market, running from Sunday, August 2, through Thursday, August 6, 2015.
