The Las Vegas Market has expanded and realigned its plans for the winter market, including the debut of a new pavilion and fresh concentrations of existing gift and home décor resources.
The new pavilion is said to be 15,000 square feet, bringing the overall pavilion total to 165,000 square feet of exhibit space. This expansion is designed to address the market’s growth in gift and home décor temporary exhibitors and to accommodate the new Artexpo Contemporary Las Vegas premiere in pavilion 2.
Pavilion 1, at 85,000 square feet of exhibit space, will be realigned to encompass the current gift and handmade categories, as well as a newly created category called Design Lifestyle, a juried category featuring design-led gift and home resources. It will showcase a comprehensive selection of categories including seasonal, housewares and gourmet products, personal care, edibles, children’s merchandise and toys, stationery and design-led products.
Additionally, Pavilion 1 will showcase Artisanal LA, the Los Angeles based pop-up show of makers and artisans, as well as the debut of an ATA (Aid To Artisans), a hosted section of global artisans. Pavilion 1 also will house an educational theater for onsite seminars.
Pavilion 2, at 65,000 square feet, will also showcase the home category, the newly named Designed Home, a rebranding of the existing B Home categories featuring interior designer inspired products, along with Discoveries exhibitors. The combination of these categories is designed to serve the market’s base of interior designers, architects, hospitality executives and upscale retailers.
The third independent temporary exhibitor show space to open on the campus, Pavilion 3, will be devoted exclusively to Discoveries: The Antique Vintage Marketplace.
“The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market have been growing steadily as demand continues to escalate for temporary exhibition space, and the addition of Pavilion 3 along with the new layout with new category introductions in Pavilions 1 and 2 will expand resources while also improving both adjacencies and efficiencies for buyers,” said Dorothy Belshaw, president of gift leasing and chief marketing officer, International Market Centers.
