WMC Helps Las Vegas Exhibitors Plan For Successful Market

Furniture World News on

World Market Center has developed a new online exhibitor education series called “Plan Your Way to a Successful Market” designed to help returning and first-time exhibitors plan ahead for July’s Las Vegas Market taking place July 24-28 at World Market Center and the Pavilions, and starting July 25 at Las Vegas Convention Center. The series will feature four informational topics presented in two web-based education sessions. The purpose of the series is to educate temporary exhibitors who will be showing at Las Vegas Convention Center and Pavilions with all necessary show information, and provide additional tools to ensure an efficient and well-planned Market experience. The sessions are free and open to all exhibiting companies. “With so many new companies joining Las Vegas Market each show, we wanted to create a conduit for exhibitors well in advance so they can manage their market-planning efficiently and effectively. We believe that the content of these programs will help enhance the information contained in the Exhibitor Service Manuals and highlight the key question areas for many exhibitors. There are many factors involved in exhibiting and our focus is to save them time and money,” said Briana Mackey, Show Director for Las Vegas Market. The first session will take place Wed. June 7, 2006 at 10:00 a.m. (Pacific) and will cover registration, badges, housing information, shipping, drayage, material handling and target move-in. The second session will take place Wed. June 14, 2006 at 10:00 a.m. (Pacific) and will cover electrical, electrical labor, booth display labor and related contractor issues. For more information, exhibitors can contact Pedro Garcia, Show Operations Assistant Manager, at pgarcia@lasvegasmarket.com. The programs will be facilitated by World Market Center’s operations team and presented by voice over the web. Questions will be submitted and also answered through the web. This is the first-time Las Vegas Market has utilized this highly unique and interactive meeting format and plans to further the use of such technologies for other large format educational programs in the future. Market registration and hotel bookings for all attendees are encouraged early and should be done on-line at: www.LasVegasMarket.com or by calling 888-WMC-SHOW (962-7469). Las Vegas Market takes place July 24-28 at World Market Center and Pavilions; the Temporaries will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center and open on July 25. In all the July 2006 Market will be the largest Las Vegas Market yet with more than 2.6 million square feet of permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits.
