Las Vegas Spring Buying Event brings mid-market sourcing opportunities this March
ANDMORE’s semi-annual Las Vegas Spring Buying Event, featuring nearly 50 home, gift and lifestyle permanent showrooms across Building C and the Las Vegas Design Center (LVDC), will be held March 3-5 at World Market Center Las Vegas.
To extend business opportunities for buyers and sellers, the trade-only event will run concurrently with ToyFest, the nation’s first full toy tradeshow of 2024. Onsite registration is required, and buyers can RSVP.
“After a successful Winter Las Vegas Market, select showrooms, as well as the Las Vegas Design Center (LVDC), will welcome buyers to World Market Center Las Vegas again in March,” said Dorothy Belshaw, executive vice president and chief growth officer of ANDMORE.
The Spring Buying Event includes a growing list of 15 gift and home manufacturers, as well as sales agency showrooms, located in Building C. Currently confirmed participants opening March 3-5 are: Diverse Marketing; F.E.M. Sales; Fine Lines; Karen Alweil Studio; Kathleen Milne Company; Keena; The New Era Sales Team (NEST); Next Step Reps; Oak Street Wholesale; R-Biz Associates; Sales Producers; SPI Home; Toyology; and ZODAX. Select showrooms will be open for buyers before Spring Buying event, March 1-2, to give attendees extra time to source, and appointments are highly recommended, according to ANDMORE.
The March event is an extension of World Market Center Las Vegas’ open year-round offerings in the Las Vegas Design Center (LVDC). During the Spring Buying Event, buyers can source in LVDC’s 30-plus designer showrooms, which present more than 120 product lines, plus additional gift, lifestyle, gourmet, tabletop and décor showrooms on campus.
As an added benefit, Toyfest, the second-oldest and second-largest toy show in the U.S., will run concurrently with Spring Buying Event at World Market Center Las Vegas, offering cross-market opportunities for buyers and sellers alike. Hosted by the Western Toy & Hobby Retailers Association, ToyFest attracts hundreds of buyers and presents more than 500 exhibitors in categories such as: toys, gifts, infant and toddler, games, education & books, stem, museum, hobby, costume, beauty, and novelty. ToyFest badges will grant buyers access to Spring Buying Event showrooms, and Spring Buying Event attendees interested in attending ToyFest will need to complete a simple, on-site registration process.
