Temporary Exhibitors Expand At Las Vegas Market

Las Vegas Market reports a significant increase in temporary exhibit leasing that will fill three Pavilions with 500+ gift and home décor exhibitors at the Winter 2018 Las Vegas Market, Jan. 28 to Feb. 1, 2018. The expanded temporary exhibition space will showcase products in seven categories, including two new categories and segmentation of an existing one.
“The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market will be compelling, comprehensive and easily-accessible for buyers and designers alike this winter,” says Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift Leasing and chief marketing officer, International Market Centers.
• Pavilion 1 encompasses a new DESIGN LIFESTYLE category, and returning GIFT and HANDMADE categories. Pavilion 1 also houses two special exhibitor areas: Artisanal LA and Aid to Artisans (ATA). A continuing collaboration with Artisanal LA brings 30 L.A.-based makers to Pavilion 1, showcasing gifts, personal care and accessories, and stationery. A first-time partnership with ATA launches the ATA’s Training for Entrepreneurs in Artisan Markets (TEAM), an on-site coaching program for emerging international artisan businesses in Las Vegas. The TEAM presentation comprises nearly 20 first-time exhibitors, featuring handmade products from South and Central America, Asia, the Caribbean and Africa.
• Pavilion 2 showcases a new DESIGN HOME category, the returning HOME category and newly segmented DISCOVERIES: Antiquities category. Pavilion 2 also houses the new co-located Artexpo Contemporary Las Vegas pop-up show, presented in partnership with Redwood Media Group, which owns and operates fine art shows.
• Pavilion 3 spotlights DISCOVERIES: Vintage, Global and Cash & Carry, a resource for one-of-a-kind vintage, global and repurposed/recycled clothing and jewelry.
The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market run January 28 to 31 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday to Tuesday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday. A highlight of Winter Market is the Cash & Carry Shopping Spree and late night shopping hours on Monday night in both Pavilions 2 and 3.

Successful Autumn IHGF Delhi Fair Paves Way For Grand February Spring Edition

Held Oct. 12 to 16, 2017 in the India Expo Centre & Mart, the Autumn 2017 edition of IHGF Delhi Fair, the world’s largest show for home, lifestyle, fashion and textiles, beat expectations with more than 3,000 exhibitors in 14 show sectors. This upsurge in participants was met with quality buyer traffic from all over the world, including the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, South America, the Middle East and Asia.
IHGF Delhi Fair returns to the India Expo Centre & Mart, New Delhi NCR, India, for its Spring 2018 edition, scheduled from Feb. 23-27, 2018. While India’s top manufacturers, exporters and artisan groups queue up to be among the nearly 3,000 exhibitors in the forthcoming edition of this sourcing show, overseas buyers are expected to turn out in large numbers. Fair visitors also get access to the 900 permanent showrooms on four levels at the India Expo Centre.
Spring 2018 brings significant expansion in all categories, including furniture and accessories, hand-printed textiles, shawls, stoles and scarves, embroidered goods, lace, decorative gifts and home textiles through exhibitors drawn from all major manufacturing hubs, artisan clusters and craft pockets in India.
Theme Pavilions and regional representations offer opportunities to source directly from artisans and new entrepreneurs, in addition to established exporters. Designers Forum, a new addition at this fair, presents collections from select established and upcoming Indian designers.
IHGF Delhi Fair is organized twice every year for Spring and Autumn by the Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH), a non-profit organization and the apex organization representing handicraft manufacturers and exporters across all of India. For more information, please contact Export Promotion Council For Handicrafts, toll free at 888-664-8664, visitors@epch.com, and visit the website at epch.in.
