After zooming in and out of Winter Las Vegas Market earlier this month, I was delighted to discover that Winter 2012 was the strongest market recorded from the past three years! According to The Editor at Large, Winter Las Vegas Market officials reported booming attendance among retailers in all categories, interior designers, and international buyers.
Robert Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers, parent company of World Market Center Las Vegas, elaborated on the implications of the busy market season. "Given the depth of the recent recession, our success speaks volumes about improving consumer confidence and a resurging economy," he said. "According to our statistics, the recession is officially over in the eyes of the furnishings industry. The energy at Winter Market was palpable. Buyers were buying, and ultimately, that's what counts."
