Las Vegas Market’s temporary exhibits – housed in the all-new Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas – are tracking to grow by more than 30 percent to showcase nearly 400 established and up-and-coming lines in seven easy-to-shop gift and home decor destinations for their Winter 2022 staging, January 23-26, 2022.

“The Las Vegas Market Gift & Home temporary exhibits are a dynamic hub of inspiration, offering one-of-a-kind products, West Coast only vendors, and an eclectic mix of home, gift, design, and fashion lines found nowhere else in the United States,” said Scott Eckman, International Market Centers (IMC) executive vice president, chief revenue officer. “This Winter, they are a must-see for buyers in search of unique products, cash and carry, and the newest additions to the product scene.”

The High Point Market Authority and Esteem Media have renewed their partnership to co-produce a brand track for the upcoming Design Influencers Conference. The 2022 event will take place in person on March 6-8 in Atlanta after a pandemic-induced hiatus in 2021.

The Design Influencers Conference launched in 2011 and continues to be the only conference specifically focused on design influencers, interior designers, and design professionals using digital content and digital platforms to build their businesses and personal brands.

DOMOTEX will not take place in January 2022. This was announced by Deutsche Messe AG as the organizer of the leading trade show for carpets and floor coverings.

"We have been fighting for DOMOTEX together with the exhibiting companies until the very end, and have been in daily communication with the industry for months," says Sonia Wedell-Castellano, Global Director DOMOTEX, Deutsche Messe AG. "DOMOTEX is particularly affected by the impact of the Corona pandemic, as the vast majority of DOMOTEX exhibitors and attendees come from abroad. However, given the current pandemic situation, international business travel is not expected to recover in the short term," adds Wedell-Castellano.

RUG INSIDER Magazine has announced its winter 2022 production schedule with advertising and editorial deadlines. The award-winning trade journal in its 25th year of publication continues to expand industry coverage as part of its year-long anniversary celebration. For winter, publisher Peter Woodaman is adding MM InStyle, a new machine-made feature.

Atlanta Market kicks off the gift wholesale and retail year with 40 showroom updates among its 700+ gift showrooms presented on 19 floors at the Winter 2022 edition, January 11-18, 2022 at AmericasMart Atlanta. Together, the eight showroom debuts, 28 expansions and four relocations make up more than 180,000 square feet of refreshed spaces for International Market Centers’ (IMC) first market of 2022.

“Atlanta Market continues to lead buying and selling for the gift industry,” said Scott Eckman, IMC executive vice president, chief revenue officer. “As such, this January, new and expanding brands and sales agencies will show even more product to the valuable buying power that attends Atlanta Market.”
