LAS VEGAS — The World Market Center Las Vegas will showcase 11 new, expanded and relocated showrooms for the Jan. 23-27, 2022, market. Two of the new showrooms — Hooker Furnishings and Howard Elliott Collection — also join more than 30 open year-round designer showrooms in the Las Vegas Design Center.
“Top home accent brands recognize the unmatched opportunity to reach the West Coast design and retail community through World Market Center Las Vegas both through the semi-annual Las Vegas Market and throughout the year at our comprehensive Las Vegas Design Center,” said Scott Eckman, International Market Centers executive vice president, chief revenue officer.
