Every summer tens of thousands of Phoenicians head to the coast for sandy beaches and water fun.
Equally so, tens of thousands of furniture, home décor, and gift professionals descend on Las Vegas, Nevada. Sure, we understand the attraction to the beach, especially when temps are in the triple digits, but why would anyone trade one desert for another in the dog days of summer?
Las Vegas Design Center, home of the Las Vegas Market
The Las Vegas Market is an incredible resource for design-focused professionals in the west. Thousands of designers and retailers head to this twice-yearly event to see what’s new to market. The latest in furniture, lighting, wall décor, home textiles, and casual and outdoor furnishings line the floors and walls. Eye candy to be sure. All slated to hit the shelves in the upcoming season.
And more than just that! Attendees wishing to hone their business skills will find opportunities to network, engage with top taste makers, and attend educational seminars to stay on trend themselves. Staying ahead of the trends helps the design trade bring their A-game and the best of the design world back to their clients and organizations at home.
“Las Vegas Market is an incredible opportunity for me to get inspired by the ‘new,’ the ‘now,’ and the ‘next’ wave of talented designers and artisans from around the world.” Benjamin Johnston: Benjamin Johnston Design, Houston
