Small group of Canadian firms to show at winter Las Vegas Market
LAS VEGAS – Roughly 27 Canadian furniture, home furnishings and giftware resources are expected to open their doors at the World Market Center here for the Winter 2022 edition of the Las Vegas Market (LVM) which will begin it usual five-day run this coming Sunday, January 23.
Thanks to the ongoing complications driven by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian delegation to the first major furniture trade event to be held in North America this year is somewhat smaller than it has been in recent years.
Held twice each year, the Las Vegas Market is owned and operated by the High Point, North Carolina-based International Market Centers (IMC). While travel and business opening restrictions to combat the pandemic have largely been lifted in the United States, it was unclear at press time how many of the permanent showrooms within the 31 floors of World Market Center would open for market.
It should be noted the Government of Canada continues to advise against what it calls ‘non-essential’ travel outside of the country. Canadian industry professionals wishing to attend the market are advised to contact Global Affairs Canada and their local health authorities before making travel arrangements.
