To say this year has been a challenging one is something of an understatement, but as it always does, the design industry’s global community of trendsetters and aesthetic mavens, craftspeople and visionaries has found a way to evolve and thrive.
As a premier West Coast destination for buyers and sellers of furniture, gifts and home decor, Las Vegas Market is doing the same. Save the date for April 11-15, and see firsthand all there is to look forward to as the country gets back to business.
When it comes to that chaise lounge you’ve been eyeing or the latest from your favorite textile brand, you want the opportunity to see, touch and feel the product in person. More than 4,300 lines will be accessible at Las Vegas Market, conveniently located throughout four interconnected buildings, all of which will operate under the extensive health and safety protocols of LVMKT’s parent company, International Market Centers.
Las Vegas Market isn’t only a biannual event. Las Vegas Design Center is open year-round and features premier showrooms in the furniture and decor categories, as well as the Kitchen & Bath Resource Center and European Bath Kitchen Tile & Stone. And when buyers need to attain product quickly, an extensive suite of virtual tools offers easy access from January through December. At any time, buyers can browse an unlimited collection of established and emerging brands from exhibitors on the West Coast and beyond, through the LVMKT Exhibitor Directory and ShopZio, a fully operational B2B e-commerce platform with 500-plus brands and 1.5 million SKUs.
THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT
Despite 2020’s historic upheaval of day-to-day life, several bright spots have emerged. Consumers are looking to their homes as sanctuary, lending renewed interest and inspiration to the creation of spaces that serve every need and meet every want. From work-from-home offices to larger family recreation areas, new concepts abound, and the opportunities for designers—to rethink, reimagine and reinvigorate—are flourishing in tandem.
And, as many return to social gathering with the confidence of learned precautions, the art of celebration is alive and more well than even before. No longer limited to holidays and birthdays, giving has become an everyday expression of love and affection, fueling a boost of activity among gift buyers.
SO, MARK YOUR CALENDAR
Join Las Vegas Market in January to experience Winter Market like never before. With stunning vignettes and resources for the design community, as well as the return of the Gift & Home Temporaries (debuting this year in LVMKT’s new Expo Center), there is much to anticipate.
