Encouraged by consumer demand for artisan goods, Las Vegas Market has increased its handcrafted gift and home décor resources at the upcoming January market.
“Handmade has been a consistent category of growth for Las Vegas Market, and this winter we will showcase more than 200 unique makers, artisans and crafters from across the U.S. and around the world in both permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits,” said Terence Morris, senior vice president of gift and tradeshow leasing at International Market Centers. “We also offer craft-focused programming to help retailers better understand the how’s and why’s of selling artisan items, so that they can capitalize on this very important consumer trend.” Terence concluded.
The Handmade category exhibit will be in Pavilion 1, featuring nearly 100 exhibitors and 9,000 square feet of space. Newcomers this market include Caribbean Craft, Silk Wool and Bijoux and Vicki Jean Leather. Artisan resources will also be included in collectives in temporary exhibits and permanent showrooms across the Las Vegas Market campus in the Gift section in Pavilion 1 and in the Home and Discoveries sections in Pavilion 2.
