In one short month, Las Vegas Market will be open once again! From August 22 to the 26, designers and buyers alike will flock to World Market Center, just minutes from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. This is the premiere West Coast design event–there are over 4,000 furniture and home decor lines on the 5 million-square-foot campus. Though it’s gigantic, the market is impossibly easy to navigate thanks to their robust website + virtual tools, including a great app to help you plan. You can map out everything, from showroom tours to which seminars you’d like to attend (and earn CEUs) long before you even hop on a plane. Plus, Las Vegas Market ensures getting to and from the campus will be super easy. There are complimentary shuttle services at most major hotels–not to mention, discounts at select partner hotels. So, you can stay somewhere fabulous, have a productive day at the market, network with industry pros, and dine at world-class restaurants. (We’ve got our eye on Bobby Flay’s new Italian joint!)

However, it’s always handy to get an insider’s perspective before heading to a big event like this–especially if you’ve never attended a market before. Whether you’re going to source for clients or buy for your business, we’ve tapped the expertise of five industry pros. They’re sharing what they’re most excited about this market, the things you can’t forget in your suitcase, and so much more.
