LVM expands furniture resources
LAS VEGAS – The organisers of the Las Vegas Market (LVM) have announced seven of its furniture exhibitors are relocating, expanding or renewing their showrooms’ leases in advance of the Summer 2019 edition of the twice-yearly trade event. These early leasing gains will add more than 90,000 square feet to its four million square feet of furniture resources.
The five-day event will open at the World Market Center here on 28 July.
“Las Vegas Market continues to expand and enhance its robust furniture category,” Scott Eckman, executive vice president of furniture and home décor for International Market Centers (IMC), said in a statement. “Las Vegas Market offers a diverse selection of home furnishings lines and continues to deliver a dynamic shopping experience for retailers and designers alike.”
IMC is the owner and organiser of the Las Vegas Market. It also owns the home goods-related trade events in Atlanta and is a significant stakeholder in the building that make up the High Point Market.
Two existing furniture showrooms are expanding or relocating for summer market: Kuka North America, a China-based supplier of sofa, bed, mattress and chair, is relocating into a 21,241-square-foot showroom on B7; and Primitive Collections, a wholesaler of lifestyle-focused furniture, is expanding by 50% into a 4,923-square-foot showroom on B1.
