The presentation - entitled A Conversation with Bill Clinton - will focus on the challenge of globalization, emphasize the growing interdependence between peoples and nations, and point the way toward a common future based on shared goals and values. Following his address, President Clinton will participate in a moderated question and answer session.

All registered Las Vegas Market attendees will have the exclusive to attend the event, which will be held on the summer market's opening night (Monday, Aug. 1) at 6:45 p.m., followed by a reception.

Online registration for the summer market - including hotel reservations - will open next month, offering attendees the opportunity to reserve their spot for the event. Retailers, designers, manufacturers and other industry professionals planning to attend the summer market who use the service can expect to receive their badges before opening day.

"Globalization has changed the furnishings industry more significantly than anything else in our time," WMC president and chief executive Robert Maricich said in a statement. "It indisputably has created new challenges as well as opportunities for our industry."

Hailing the former president as a "world leader and one of the foremost experts on globalization and the economy," Maricich said "Home furnishings professionals at Las Vegas Market will benefit from President Clinton's insights and solutions on the most pressing economic and social issues in the U.S. and abroad."
