First-time to Las Vegas Market? Start Here
Tap into Las Vegas Market’s top-notch resources and amenities to make the most of your first time at market. Here’s a primer on what to do before, during and after market, including tips from long-time Las Vegas Market attendees.
Pre-Register For Market
It’s easy to pre-register for market. Complete the online registration form and you’ll receive a QR code. When you arrive at Las Vegas Market, look for the convenient Scan & Go kiosks in the Registration Tent and at select partner hotels. Your badge is ready in seconds, and you’ll be sourcing tout suite. (On-site registration is easy, too, but you’ll have to queue.)
Book Your Hotel
Las Vegas Market partners with hotels in downtown Las Vegas and the Las Vegas strip to secure discounts for market attendees. Want a hotel with top-ranked restaurants? Check. A Cirque show? Pas probleme. Within walking distance of the downtown light show? It’s on. Find your preferred hotel here, and book it now.
App, Map, Snap
Download the Las Vegas Market app, and navigating Las Vegas Market is a snap. Map out a customized showroom hit list; find eateries and coffee shops; choose your seminars, keynotes and panel discussions; review show specials and discounts; and much more. (We have printed directories and pocket guides available at all building entrances, too.)
Make easy work of order writing by having hard copies of your credit references with you. Most vendors require credit references for first-time orders.

Las Vegas Market provides free shuttles to and from host hotels, as well as continuous shuttles from the transportation terminal to The Pavilions. Shuttles are often the easiest way to get to market each morning, as the parking garage, overflow lots, and valet parking fill up quickly.

Or, enjoy VIP access to the hottest clubs simply by showing your Las Vegas Market badge at designated locations.
“When I’m buying here, I ask for printouts that let me see the pictures … so when I get back home, I can get everything in the computer before (my orders) start arriving,” explains Kandis Albertson of Billings Hardware & Garden Center, Billings, MT. “Once (the merchandise) gets here, I can get it out and start selling it.”
