Las Vegas Market shifts to Sunday-Thursday schedule through 2016

International Market Centers has announced winter and summer Las Vegas Market dates through 2016, introducing a new Sunday-to-Thursday date pattern to "better serve retailers' needs for a weekend day and accommodate Friday travel plans," according to a press release.

IMC previously announced the Sunday-to-Thursday schedule for the winter 2014 show, rather than the traditional Monday start.

Running Sunday through Thursday, future market dates are:

• Jan. 26-30, 2014;
• July 27-31, 2014;
• Jan. 18-22, 2015;
• Aug. 2-6, 2015;
• Jan. 17-21, 2016;
• July 31-Aug. 4, 2016.

"In the face of recent upheaval in the industry show calendar, with other shows switching dates and running times, Las Vegas is maintaining continuity and organizing a consistent timeframe for market participants," said Robert Maricich, president and CEO of IMC. "An extremely successful summer market - with exponential year-over-year growth in both buyer attendance and vendor participation - has teed-up some great momentum for our future growth, making Las Vegas Market the leading home furnishings and gift destination in the western United States."

Markets in 2014 and 2015 also will overlap with other related industry events running in Las Vegas.

In winter 2014 and 2015, the Las Vegas Market will continue its existing co-location with the Surfaces/StonExpo, which runs Jan. 28-30, 2014, and Jan. 21-23, 2015, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

"We are extremely pleased that Las Vegas Market dates will overlap with these industry related markets and look forward to working with their organizers to make the most of our common timing and locations," Maricich said. "Las Vegas clearly is ‘the place to be' when it comes to doing business in the home furnishings arena."

The winter 2014 market will feature the second CEO Summit produced by IMC and Eller Enterprises, which will take place Jan. 29-30, 2014. Showrooms will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, through Wednesday, Jan. 29, and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30.

The summer 2014 show will feature the completion of phase three of "the market's transformation into today's complete home furnishings and gift marketplace," the release states, with continued growth in giftware and home décor to supplement furniture offerings. Phase three features the introduction of new categories of merchandise, including kitchen products and gourmet housewares.
