Road Runners opens expanded showroom in Las Vegas
Road Runners, a sales agency representing brands within the specialty retail market, will open a 11,000-square-foot showroom during the July 30-Aug. 3 Las Vegas Market.
The space, previously occupied by Fine Lines, featured the latest product introductions in addition to celebrations and daily prizes to commemorate the new space.
Road Runners’ expanded presence in the first showroom is 36 percent larger than the company’s previous World Market Center Las Vegas location, which was approximately 7,000 square feet. The relocation and redesign project is being led by Tara Alley, director of visual design at Road Runners, making this her seventh complete showroom remodel for the company. Anchor brands within the enhanced space include the Lifeguard Press portfolio of brands including Vera Bradley, Lily Pulitzer and Kate Spade New York, along with Deny Designs, Faceplant Dreams, Inis Fragrances of Ireland, Le Cadeaux, Shannon Martin Design, Splendid Iris and Stickers Northwest.
“As Road Runners continued to grow and evolve its brand representation, it became evident that we needed a larger, unified space at World Market Center Las Vegas,” said Tosha Grebe Pearson, director of sales for the West at Roadrunners. “Our expanded showroom will serve as a destination for retailers attending the upcoming market, where the latest and greatest products across a multitude of categories will be featured. We look forward to opening our doors and celebrating this exciting Road Runners milestone with retailers from across the country.”
The Road Runners showroom is located in Building C, Floor 10, and will feature the latest products within the categories of candles and personal care; paper and cards; children and baby gifts; general gifts; jewelry & fashion accessories; and home, garden and gourmet.
