Furniture World News on

The Santa Ana, Calif-based Mark Roberts has announced plans to open a new home accents showroom in Building A at World Market Center in time for the Winter 2007 Las Vegas Market, scheduled for January 29 – February 2, 2007 at World Market Center and Pavilions and January 30 – February 2 at Cashman Center. His home accents showroom will be located on the fourth floor near other home accent companies. Leasing officials at World Market Center say Roberts is known for his stunning displays and clever merchandising plus original designs which will be very attractive to accessory buyers. Upon the completion of Building C in 2008, Roberts will move in to his permanent space; a 6,900-square-foot showroom on the 7th floor of World Market Center’s third building, scheduled to open for the July 2008 Las Vegas Market. Within this new & expanded showroom, Roberts will be able to show his complete home accent and Christmas lines together. Owner Mark Roberts said the company is looking forward to having a permanent showroom at World Market Center and participating in the Winter 2007 Market. “We are thrilled to be opening a new showroom in Las Vegas and becoming a part of the exciting growth at World Market Center. The showroom provides another opportunity for us to showcase our products and reach buyers and we are excited for the January Market!” Babs Blair, Director of Leasing for World Market Center, said Mark Roberts is a very good example of an industry innovator. “His lines are very fashion forward in terms of home furnishings,” Blair said. “A permanent showroom at World Market Center is going to give Mark Roberts an even stronger presence in the category.” Blair added that Roberts has a tremendous built-in customer base and will be an additional draw for retailers to attend Market. “Mark Roberts attracts all kinds of retailers and has broad appeal,” she added. “The addition of an industry leader like Mark Roberts will give retailers yet another reason to travel to Las Vegas.” World Market Center is an integrated home and hospitality contract furnishings showroom and convention complex in Las Vegas. When fully built, at 12 million square feet in 8 buildings, World Market Center will be the largest trade show complex in the World. The 12 million square foot campus will be complete by 2013 and will showcase furniture, decorative accessories, lighting, area rugs, home textile and related segments, as well as a Design Center (LVDC) open year-round to the trade. The second building will open in January 2007; officials are now leasing the third building to a broad cross-section of the home furnishings industry.
