The Las Vegas Market welcomes home furnishings and furniture dealers, home décor retailers, interior designers, suppliers, architects, purchasing companies and industry experts at Summer LVM 2018. The annual event — LVM also runs an annual winter market — fills more than 5.4 million square feet of permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits with thousands of trending home décor, furniture, bedding, outdoor, antiques, textiles and more. Scheduled for July 29 – Aug 2 at the World Market Center campus (WMC) in Las Vegas, Summer LVM offers:
- Over 4,000 exhibitors and brands
- Networking events
- Business lounges
- Dining areas
- “More than 600 temporary exhibits and growing”
- The fastest growing gift and home décor market in the U.S.
CrossCheck, an established LVM exhibitor, will present valuable services for home furnishings dealers at booth #22 in the HFA Retailer Resource Center.
International Market Centers (IMC), owners and operators of LVM, launched a new website on April 23, 2018 which enhances exhibitor and marketing planning tools. The final product was two years in the making.
The new exhibitor directory located on the homepage features a search tool based on product categories, styles, and price point. Categories include but are not limited to baby/kids/juvenile; furniture, motion; furniture, ready to assemble; lighting; rugs and floor coverings; and wall décor. Style options are comprised of coastal, contemporary, lodge/rustic, modern, traditional, and transitional. The four price points are medium, medium-high, promotional and upper end.
With LVM’s upgraded market planner tool, attendees can search and filter through preferred vendors and design a custom itinerary. Exhibitor profiles now feature floor maps to showrooms. Attendees with an account may utilize Scan & Go QR codes for badge printing during check-in at the market.
“Las Vegas Market strives to be an effective, efficient and compelling resource for exhibitors and buyers alike,” said Dorothy Belshaw, president of gift leasing and chief marketing officer. “With the launch of this new site and the corresponding capabilities, International Market Centers is further enhancing every buyer’s experience and actively supporting the business strategies of our exhibitors, all part of our goal to enhance our role as a valued industry partner.”
