New Summer Market Dates and Protocols
Looking ahead to what’s next – responsibly & together.
Las Vegas Market is now August 30-September 3
We’re moving forward to help you get back to business, reinvigorate our industry and our communities.
Following a comprehensive survey of buyers and exhibitors, our Summer market will move out one month and now be held August 30-September 3. Gift & Home Temporaries, which will be staged for the first time in the Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas, are open August 30 – September 2. During these new market dates, Las Vegas Market will also run concurrently with the National Hardware Show, which runs September 1 – 3 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
We know health and safety are still top of mind for everyone, so we are working with a renowned epidemiologist among other experts to finalize a comprehensive health and safety plan for Las Vegas Market. At a minimum our list of protocols will include the required use of masks, regular sanitizing of surfaces and spaces, careful direction of foot traffic through well-spaced entrances and exits, and daily temperature checks. We will also introduce contactless registration, requiring that buyers pre-register for a digital badge that will be scanned at arrival, rather than a traditional worn badge, and are preparing arrival and departure strategies to facilitate social distancing.
The health and safety of our customers is our first priority. See what we’re doing to prepare for reopening at www.togethersafely.com.
Any hotel reservations made through Market’s official housing partner, Connections Housing, will be automatically cancelled. New hotel blocks will reopen on June 1st for the new market period.

Over the coming weeks we will be utilizing our digital tools to help you discover products and prepare for an efficient market experience. We will put a pause on hosting social gatherings and in-person seminars at market this summer and instead look for ways to bring these to you online as well.
You’ve told us how important it is to see products first-hand at market, so when you’re ready to travel we look forward to welcoming you back to Las Vegas Market.
