Artexpo Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Market: A Perfect Partnership
For the past eight years, Redwood Media Group has been revolutionizing the global fine art community by hosting multiple high-end art shows throughout the year. This past year, the team at the World Market Center Las Vegas asked us to produce a world-class fine art fair during Las Vegas Market, the only major home furnishings market in the West and the fastest growing gift and home décor market in the country.
Twice a year, in January and July, tens of thousands of retailers and designers from 50 states and 76 countries come to Las Vegas Market. Recent buyer research indicated a desire for a fine art pavilion at both markets. So the Las Vegas Market team proceeded to look for a partner to produce a high-quality event.
Simultaneously, we had been contacted by many of our exhibitors expressing interest in a West Coast trade event so they could expand their distribution through galleries, designers, and architects working in the home, hospitality, art, and design markets.
In June, Redwood Media Group and Las Vegas Market formalized an alliance to bring the highly successful Artexpo brand to Las Vegas beginning in January 2018. This is an unprecedented opportunity for us to connect well-established artists, gallery owners, and publishers with a rapidly growing base of interior designers, architects, hospitality executives, and upscale retailers, a majority of whom don’t attend markets in the East yet have millions of dollars in buying power. Partnering with Las Vegas Market also allows us to offer exhibitors unparalleled promotional programs, marketing support, and buyer outreach.
Located in one of the world’s most accessible, affordable, and exciting cities, Artexpo Las Vegas at Las Vegas Market is RMG’s answer to our exhibitors’ request for a trade-only show. Let me know how we can assist you with getting your exhibit process started.
