Las Vegas Market offers new mid-season buying events

In response to buyer and seller demand, International Market Centers (IMC) announced the launch of new mid-season, showroom-focused and appointment-driven gift and lifestyle buying events to be staged semi-annually in April and October. The inaugural Fall Buying Event is Oct. 10-11, 2022.

“West Coast gift and lifestyle buyers and sellers want more opportunities to come together at World Market Center Las Vegas,” said Bob Maricich, CEO for IMC. “A successful pilot Spring Buying Event earlier this year confirmed the importance of midseason events for these sectors, and we’re delighted to satisfy this demand by adding two new in-person events to our World Market Center Las Vegas calendar.”

IMC first explored the viability of shoulder markets in Las Vegas in April 2022 with its first-ever Spring Buying Event which featured some 50+ leading manufacturers and sales agencies. Feedback from buyers and sellers was overwhelmingly positive.

The new Spring and Fall Buying events are an extension of World Market Center Las Vegas’ open year-round offerings in the Las Vegas Design Center (LVDC). At the April and October events, buyers can source in LVDC’s 30+ designer showrooms presenting more than 120 product lines plus additional gift, lifestyle, gourmet, tabletop and decor showrooms on campus.

The Fall Buying Event is Monday, Oct. 10 and Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2022, with participating showrooms open 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. daily. A full list of participating showrooms will be available closer to the event. Appointments are strongly suggested.

April 2023 dates for Spring Buying Event are to be announced.
