Harold Import, Housewares Vendors Boost Las Vegas Market’s C11

Harold Import Co. has signed on as a C11 anchor tenant, debuting this winter at the Las Vegas World Market Center’s permanent showroom floor for gourmet housewares, tabletop, gift and specialty food. The company will bow along with five other new exhibitors, according to show organizer International Market Centers.

In addition to housewares, serveware, dinnerware and gadgets supplier Harold Import, exhibitors making their initial appearance as part of C11 at the Winter Las Vegas Market include specialty food supplier Blue Cattle Truck Mexican Vanilla, barware, tabletop and accessories manufacturer Leadingware Group, tabletop, housewares and home décor supplier Magenta, specialty food and spice purveyor Pepper Creek Farms and multi-line sales agency Peterson Associates, showcasing Boelter Brands, a provider of licensed drinkware, kitchen products, home décor and tailgating/entertaining products.

The six newly confirmed C11 tenants would bring an additional 25 new lines to the 2016 winter market, IMC said. 

“This past summer’s launch of C11 was very well received by both buyers and suppliers, and these unusually early commitments for the next market signal a robust sales cycle and continued momentum between now and January,” said Dorothy Belshaw, IMC president of gift and home decor. “These newly confirmed vendors represent a minimum of 20% growth in resources on C11 for the Winter Market. With an additional three to four newcomers to be announced soon, we are well on the way to meeting our goal of 50% occupancy on C11 for the Winter Market, which is an essential part of our strategy to reposition Las Vegas Market as the leading furniture, home decor and gift destination in the western United States, and we look forward to continuing to grow resources and to build relevant retail attendance.”
