Las Vegas Market To Host Gourmet Demonstrations

The Las Vegas Market will host a gourmet demonstration on three days during the summer 2018 market, running July 29 to August 2, as part of its ongoing commitment to the gourmet industry.

The 60-to-90-minute demonstration will feature Bobby Griggs from Hammer Stahl on three show days: Sunday, July 29 at 2 p.m.; Monday, July 30 at 2 p.m.; and Tuesday, July 31 at 10 a.m.

Las Vegas Market said it continues to make significant gains in the gourmet category, with 750-plus gourmet housewares, boutique tabletop and specialty food resources available in permanent showrooms and the gift and home temporary exhibits at summer market— including new and expanding resources from Badash Crystal; Grainware; Hammond’s Candies; Kiss That Frog and Be Home; Kitchen Source; Le Creuset; New Canaan Farms; Serene House; and Taste, A Gourmet Food Experience.

New gourmet housewares and tabletop suppliers also will be represented in The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market this summer, with dozens of first-time exhibitors debuting in temporary exhibit spaces. Newcomers include gourmet suppliers Albert L. (Punkt), Inc.; Aura Glass; Bugatti Italy; Forlife; Huang Acrylic; and The Crystal Wonderland.

“We’ve experienced a tremendous rate of growth over the last two years in this category and that growth is a direct result of our tenant support and engagement,” said Joy Jansen, director of leasing, gift and home, International Market Centers. “It’s been inspiring to see the kind of community we are building here and we’re excited about hosting more demonstrations in the future.”
