Las Vegas Market Prepares for Summer with Dramatic Expansion

The city of Las Vegas has long been known for unprecedented booms and dramatic growth. Now, that explosive growth is ever apparent and squarely set on Las Vegas Market with thousands of new furnishings and gift lines that have been added or expanded since Winter 2012.

At the upcoming Las Vegas Market buyers will see 1,200 new exhibitors and lines--representing the total home experience. In the home furnishings category, buyers will see more than 300 new exhibitors--all new to Las Vegas Market in just a few markets.

To accommodate this growth, Las Vegas Market has paved the way for 1.1 million square feet of new and expanded showrooms, categories and products spanning furniture, home décor and gift. Since Winter 2012, Las Vegas Market has added 600,000 square feet of furniture showrooms, 290,000 square feet of home décor showrooms, and 260,000 square feet of gift showrooms across its five million square foot campus comprised of three-buildings. The market has also undergone a tremendous re-merchandising to bring like companies and categories together and create a more cohesive and efficient experience for buyers.Las Vegas Market dominates as the national epicenter for the bedding industry with 310,000 square feet of space fully dedicated to mattress and bedding suppliers.

"The growth we've experienced in the last 18 months is nothing short of spectacular, and there is certainly a sense of renewed retailer participation and leasing activity that we haven't seen in years. Both buyers and sellers see Las Vegas Market as a critical piece of their business strategy given its unique location, retail penetration and broad exhibitor and product mix," said Bob Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers, parent company to Las Vegas Market.

Maricich added, "Our July Market provides an incredible opportunity for retailers to see thousands of mid-year product introductions to freshen inventory for the fall selling season. We sincerely hope that any buyer who hasn't been to our market in a couple years will take a serious look at us this Summer to experience over 1,200 new exhibitors and lines--representing the total home and gift experience. Of course the first class hospitality and educational components of the market are a huge bonus that uniquely benefit Las Vegas Market attendees."

In the last 18 months, Las Vegas Market has added nearly 900,000 square-feet of new and expanded home furnishings showrooms featuring products in every category for the home including furniture, decorative accessories, wall art, flooring, lighting--plus 35,000 square feet of home furnishings temporary exhibitors.
