Las Vegas Market & ASD Market Week Continue Cooperation With Summer 2018 “Two for Tuesday” Program

Furniture World News



Las Vegas Market and ASD Market Week recently announced the continuation of their successful TWO FOR TUESDAY collaboration – on Tuesday, July 31, 2018, in Las Vegas – bringing together the collective resources of two major tradeshows and thousands of resources. The fourth edition of TWO FOR TUESDAY provides buyers with free and continuous shuttle service between the two exhibit venues – the Las Vegas Convention Center and World Market Center Las Vegas – as well as free access to both wholesale markets.

“ASD Market Week is thrilled to be collaborating with Las Vegas Market once again to offer buyers the two-for-one show access between our markets,” said Camille Candella, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Emerald Expositions. “We are committed to providing the retail industry with a market week filled with buying opportunities. In working together, ASD and Las Vegas Market provide retailers a greater return on their shopping investment when coming to Las Vegas. They will have access to thousands of gift and home vendors across both shows as well as suppliers of fashion accessories, jewelry, and general merchandise, ultimately making their buying trip much more successful.”

Las Vegas Market features lifestyle-oriented and design-driven gift and home décor products across all price points. ASD features great impulse buys and high margin opportunities in Fashion, Gifts, Novelties and more. Together, the two events present more than 4,800 unique resources for buyers. Minimal overlap between ASD’s exhibitors and Las Vegas Market’s permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits creates an unparalleled incremental buying opportunity for global retailers across differentiated, but related, categories.

“Since we launched TWO FOR TUESDAY in 2015, it has been an added benefit at no additional cost for Las Vegas Market buyers and suppliers,” said Dorothy Belshaw, President of Gift Leasing & Chief Marketing Officer, International Market Centers. “This continuing partnership with ASD is a win-win for our customers – buyers can access additional resources and exhibitors gain exposure to new channels of distribution – and increases the return on investment for buyer and suppliers alike.”
