Las Vegas Market Grows Gourmet Resources

Growing its gourmet resources, the Las Vegas Market is bringing in more than 750 gourmet housewares, tabletop and specialty food resources to permanent showrooms and temporary exhibition space during the summer market, which is set to take place July 29 to August 2.

Kiss That Frog and Be Home, a supplier of European-inspired home, tabletop and décor, is relocating and expanding into a new showroom on C1; and Le Creuset is opening a new space on C11.

New gourmet housewares and tabletop suppliers will also be represented in The Pavilions this summer. Newcomers include gourmet suppliers Albert L. (Punkt), Inc.; Aura Glass; Casa Bugatti; Forlife; Huang Acrylic; and The Crystal Wonderland. New exhibitors carrying a varied assortment of tabletop, housewares and gift products: Danforth Pewter; Fair Trade Winds; Harkiss Designs; I Must Draw; Kara Weaves; Mira Fair Trade; and Rainy Day Illustrations.

“Las Vegas Market has achieved ‘critical mass’ in the gourmet category, and C1 and C11— our gourmet-oriented floors— are rapidly approaching 100% occupancy,” said Joy Jansen, leasing manager, gift and home, International Market Centers. “We are seeing continuing expansion in core gift-oriented housewares and tabletop resources from both industry leaders and innovative newcomers.”
