Web-Based Calendar Program to Assist Market-Goers with Las Vegas Scheduling

Furniture World Magazine


World Market Center unveiled a new, web-based calendar on the www.lasvegasmarket.com website. The tool features a year-round calendar for activities, events and educational offerings during the bi-annual home furnishings Markets and other events throughout the year at World Market Center and Las Vegas Design Center. Dana Pretner Andrew, director of marketing and public relations for World Market Center, said the program is designed to help visitors to World Market Center and Las Vegas Market view the various activities and offerings available each day. “We designed this program to be extremely easy to navigate -- even for the least tech-savvy visitors to our website,” Pretner Andrew said. Not only does the web-based technology offer a clear view of what is going on when; its features also allow a visitor to add an event directly to their own calendar. The technology is compatible with Outlook on all platforms as well as most Mac-based calendar programs. World Market Center will still post PDF versions of event calendars on its website. “This new technology helps us offer a more interactive experience,” Pretner Andrew said, adding that the technology inserts event specifics along with a complete description on the user’s own calendar. “Our attendees and visitors are accustomed to using web-based calendar programs on their phones and PDAs. We felt it was imperative to make our calendars compatible. This, in turn, will increase their productivity and efficiency while at World Market Center.” 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.
