28 Canadian firms to show at spring Las Vegas Market
LAS VEGAS – Approximately 28 Canadian furniture, home furnishings and giftware resources are expected to open their doors at the World Market Center here for the Spring 2021 edition of the Las Vegas Market when it starts its normal five-day run this Sunday (April 11, 2021).
Normally, this edition of the twice-yearly trade event is held during the last week of January but was delayed until April because of restrictions imposed by various levels of government – both within and without the United States – to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
At press time, the organizers said it was unclear how many of the permanent showrooms within the 31 floors of World Market Center would open for market. It should be noted that the Government of Canada has closed this country’s border with the United States for what it deems as ‘non-essential travel’ and they aren’t expected to be re-opened until at least the end of May. Canadian retailers wishing to attend the spring market are advised to contact Global Affairs Canada before making travel arrangements.
The last ‘normal’ edition of the Las Vegas Market was the Winter 2020 event held about 16 months which saw some 50 Canadian companies exhibit.
Among the names missing from the Spring 2021 roster of exhibitors are Stylus, Made-to-Order Sofas, the Vancouver-based contemporary upholstery specialist. Also missing from the list is casual dining powerhouse Canadel, case goods resource CDI Furniture, and outdoor furniture specialists Ratana and Corriveau.
The market is divided into three broad categories: furniture (including upholstery, case goods, mattresses and related products and services sold both by and to furniture retailers; home décor (mainly accessories such as mirrors, lamps, area rugs); and giftware. The event attracts retailers in all three categories as well as interior designers.
