The company stated that it changed the Las Vegas market dates to capitalize on a recent shift home furnishings industry market timing, and in concert with ongoing travel and government restrictions in the western United States. The High Point Market Authority just announced a shift in its spring trade show from April 17 to 21, 2021 to June 5 to 9.
“We have opted to postpone the Winter Las Vegas Market in connection with Governor Sisolak’s recent extension of Nevada’s ‘statewide pause’ and in consideration of stay-at-home orders currently impacting travel for key western states,” said Bob Maricich, IMC CEO. “HPMA’s decision to change High Point Market from April to June further affirms our decision and allows us to shift the winter Las Vegas Market into April. We also will alter our summer Las Vegas Market dates from July to August to allow enough time between the April Las Vegas Market, new June High Point Market dates and our summer market in Las Vegas. Our Las Vegas Showrooms including the Las Vegas Design Center remain open for business by appointment for buyers.”
