Winter Market offers Market-goers a variety of special events and industry networking opportunities, including the 14th annual Las Vegas Market Design Icon Award.

The award highlights the achievements of exemplary design and architectural professionals and offers Las Vegas Market attendees an opportunity to connect with and learn firsthand from living legends.
For the first time this January, Las Vegas Market is partnering with Kite Trade Association International (KTAI) to bring 20 makers and designers of wind-related products to Pavilion 1, adding a new dimension to the Market’s gift and home temporary exhibits. KTAI is a non-profit organization based in Oregon that exists to support and promote the manufacturing, distribution and retailing of kites and wind-related products. The co-location, which is KTAI’s first collaboration with a major market, will add to the 200+ toy resources available in three buildings and two pavilions at Las Vegas Market.
Additional Market-exclusive events include the 2019 Housewares Design Awards, which recognize design excellence in 11 core housewares categories, one SMART home category and a new Gourmet Specialty Foods category. During the industry event, the third annual Design Influencer Award will also be presented.
Winter Market highlights also include key product introductions in gift, home décor and furniture resources in both permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits. Introductions within the gift category include international, seasonal/garden, pet products and fashion accessories. Within furniture, there will be a focus on case goods, upholstery, casual/outdoor, mattress and bedding and hospitality. In home décor, new resources are expected in lighting, rugs, accents, wall décor and home textiles. Additionally, Winter 2019 will showcase all of the major producers and brands in mattress and bedding.
Temporary exhibits at Las Vegas will showcase 500+ new and returning gift and home décor exhibitors in six categories at The Pavilions at Las Vegas Market. Pavilion 1 features GIFT, DESIGN LIFESTYLE and HANDMADE; and Pavilion 2 presents HOME, DESIGN HOME and DISCOVERIES: The Antique Vintage Marketplace.
