Las Vegas Market Expands Their Gourmet Resources

Las Vegas Market announced today that six new showrooms, featuring a combined total of more than 70 lines in 12,000+ square feet, will debut at the Winter 2017 Las Vegas Market, running January 22-26, 2017. These newest additions to floors C11 – the industry’s most dynamic new destination for gift-oriented housewares, tabletop and specialty food – and to C1 bring the total number of gourmet resources at Las Vegas Market to more than 400 in both permanent showrooms and temporary presentations.

Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers, says, “Las Vegas Market’s gourmet category expansion is continuing at a rapid pace, and we expect to announce more additions and expansions in the coming weeks.  The Market’s embrace of gourmet has been explosive, with nearly 100% occupancy on C11 expected by the end of 2017. This type of expansion is making Las Vegas Market the fastest-growing home decor and gift destination in the western United States.”

Five of the six new showrooms –bambu home, Destination Gifts, Inc., Fuji Merchandise, Prissy Plates and Vital Industries – will premiere on C11 in January. The largest of the newcomers, in 11, 267-square-feet, is Destination Gifts Inc., a new strategic sales consortium formed by Got Nevada Reps, Kolibaba, Rosemarie & Co. and Salesmark, Inc., will showcase 25 to 30 regional and national vendors. Other newcomers on C11 include bambu home, manufacturer of eco-friendly dining and entertaining products made from sustainable materials, in its first permanent showroom in 387-square-feet; Fuji Merchandise Corporation, a supplier of porcelain tableware, kitchen products, cast iron teapots, premium Japanese green tea, paper products, kimonos, professional grade knives, Japanese decorative products, and Japanese giftware items, in 241 square feet; Prissy Plates, supplier of tableware and decorative items with changeable ribbon for any season or occasion, in 191-square-feet; and Vital Industries, a producer of screen printed glassware, clothing, and accessories, moving from a temporary presentation to its first permanent national showroom in a 234-square-foot space.

Las Vegas Market identified the gourmet category as one of its strategic building blocks and launched C11 in Summer 2015. Since that time, the floor has rapidly expanded to its current 60% occupancy, with expected sold-out status to be achieved by the end of 2017. Beyond the concentration of nearly 300 gourmet lines on C11, the Las Vegas Market now boasts 400+ gourmet-related resources across its 40 showroom floors and two temporary pavilions.
