Furniture World News on

The Art of Mexico breaches borders and travels to Las Vegas to proudly display the folklore and creativity of its people. A group of more than 12 Mexican manufacturers will display original pieces of decorative art, gifts and handcrafts at the Summer 2006 Las Vegas Market. For the first time ever, the Chamber of Commerce of the City of Tlaquepaque, Mexico will be presenting to the United States and to the world, a very rich sample of Mexican originality during the upcoming Las Vegas Market, being held July 25 – 28, 2006. This unique exhibit called Canaco Tlaquepaque will be located at the Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall, Stands 72056-72356. “Our primary goal is to show the visitors of our stand that Mexican handcrafts and decorative art are a very attractive and “real” option when decorating and creating unique environments that go well in any setting around the world,” said LCI. Viridiana Vazquez, Special Projects for Canaco Tlaquepaque. “We believe that this event is the perfect occasion to promote Mexico’s artists and craftsmen as well as an opportunity to initiate long term commercial relationships.” The ENART Group (National Exposition of Gift Items and Decorative Handcrafts) is responsible for promoting domestically and internationally the decorative, gift, and handcraft products of various manufacturers. These decorative products and crafts are identified by their exceptional quality, design and warmth of workmanship. Manufacturers displaying their products include: Likido Acasa Patva Diseño y Arte Mauricio Preciado Blown Cristal El Dorado Galeria Gustavo Martínez Amada Inc.

We are certain that all of those who visit our stand will be fascinated by the works displayed there and we, as well, will be enchanted by their visit,” added Vazquez.
