Furniture and lighting manufacturer Gabby is opening a showroom in Building B, suite B-316 of World Market Center Las Vegas in time for the upcoming Las Vegas Market, Jan. 26-30.
According to a press release, the company hopes signing a long-term agreement with the Las Vegas Market will help it better serve its customers in the western U.S., where Gabby also has a Los Angeles distribution center.
"We project both our Las Vegas showroom and Los Angeles distribution center will play a key role in growing our market presence in the western states," said William White, president of Gabby. "We strongly believe we have created a perfect storm of saleable products that will resonate with our customers, and change the way they think about home furnishings."
Gabby has seen double-digit sales growth for the third year in a row, according to the press release.
"We are delighted that Gabby has joined Las Vegas Market's roster of better home décor companies, adding to the breadth and depth of product available at this market," said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers. "Las Vegas Market continues to redefine the home décor market experience for both buyers and suppliers, attracting high-profile, as well as emerging, resources in both permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits."
Gabby is also expanding its High Point Market presence in time for the spring show, set for April 5-10. Its new 5,000-sq.-ft. showroom in IHFC W-168 is located next to the Wrenn lobby, with street access under the IHFC Wrenn Street bridge. The company will also maintain its presence in Interhall.
"We are thrilled we were able to find a permanent showroom for Gabby that accommodates their growing line of products," said Julie Messner, vice president of leasing for International Market Centers. "This showroom with an entrance right off the IHFC Wrenn lobby and additional street access will provide great visibility."
"Even after three expansions at High Point Market, we felt the need to move to better showcase the entire product line rather than new products only," said Don White, Gabby's national sales manager. "The new 5,000-sq.-ft. showroom will be a much more comfortable and brand-appropriate environment. This will allow our sales representatives to better serve their customers."
