Starting Sunday and running through Thursday, Las Vegas World Market will be hosting their Winter Market Event. The Market is the leading home furnishings and gift marketplace in the western U.S., presenting 2,000+ home furnishings and gift resources in an unrivaled market destination. Las Vegas Market features thousands of furniture, home décor and gift lines, allowing for cross-category commerce among these industries. The event be featuring a campus tour (which is already sold out!), seminars, book signings, along with designers presenting product launches at some of the showrooms.
Some of these special engagements will include: Designer Barry Dixon Collection Brunch at Arteriors, a “Make it Beautiful” Collection Launch party with Monica Pederson of HGTV, a book signing with Designer Barclay Butera, a reception at Safavieh with a Q&A plus luncheon with Thom Filicia, plus even a presentation honoring design icon, Barbara Barry.
Along with these designer events, there will also be the seminars, some of which are the Power of Pinterest for Retailers, The Art Of Storytelling, and even a power-house panel of designers discussing Social Media & the Design Community: How to Encourage Influencers to Grow Your Brand. The Las Vegas World Market is very similar to, but on a smaller scale, High Point Market. Since I haven’t been able to make it back east for High Point, I’m thrilled to be attending this event while living out west. I’m especially looking forward to see the new-to-market product introductions debuting this season. The Market calls this “First Look”, which is similar to a backstage pass to the new trends in the industry. Here’s a peek at some of the “First Look” items I’m already crushing on.
One of the hottest decor trends for 2014 is having a statement chandelier, and this 25-inch-high Muriel chandelier comprised of cast resin spheres, doesn’t disappoint.
These are just a few of the many items I can’t wait to see at the Las Vegas Market. Besides the new products and events, I’m also excited to see Leslie Carothers along with finally getting to meet in real life social media friends! I’ll be sharing pics on Google+ , Facebook, and Twitter. Eventually I’ll be adding them to my LVMKT 2014 board on Pinterest and share them, plus my market experience after I come back.
