Three gift and home décor exhibitors were recognized for Outstanding Achievement in Visual Merchandising at Gift+Home at the 2012 Winter Las Vegas Market.
Celebrity designer Monica Pedersen of HGTV and home products and trends editor Julie Smith Vincenti evaluated spaces on innovation, creativity, technique and aesthetic. Three awards were given, based on booth size, to spaces that excelled in delivering beautifully merchandised displays with the Las Vegas Market buyers’ retail showroom in mind.
Heavenly Hostess, Twelve Timbers and Collins Painting and Design all took home awards as well as a celebration of champagne and flowers for their excellent spaces. By telling a story with their products, as well as allowing buyers to visualize how they could be displayed in a retail environment, these companies were able to attract strong traffic to their spaces.
“We were very surprised and pleased at receiving this award,” said Connie Nielson of Twelve Timbers. “We work very hard at putting together our display and it means a lot to be recognized. We notice people are drawn in by the sparkle and color, and that has attracted a lot of visitors into the space. It’s been a great show for us and we will definitely be back for Summer Market.”
Gift+Home at Las Vegas Market is widely regarded as the must-attend gift and home décor show in the west, by providing the industry with a large-scale trade event that fuses the best gift resources for buyers on the west coast in an unrivaled market destination.
Winter 2012 Gift+Home at Las Vegas Market featured a strong variety of dynamic gift products and lines. Gift+Home temporaries, located on the 5th floor of Building C, joined the hundreds of permanent showrooms featuring top gift and décor lines. This Market consistently generates added value to both attending exhibitors and buyers by allowing for vast crossover potential among the gift, furniture, home décor and accessory industries.
