Vegas Market’s FIRST LOOK Themes Announced

Las Vegas Market announced that popular trend program FIRST LOOK will showcase “2020 Vision,” a color and trend forecast manifesting two broad themes – Personal Style and Easy Sophistication – at Summer 2019 Las Vegas Market. These themes will be on display in dynamic vignettes located in four Las Vegas Market campus locations: Building A lobby; Building B, WorldView on Sixteen; Building C, fourth floor; and in the Pavilions at Las Vegas Market. “Las Vegas Market’s FIRST LOOK program is a key source for product trends for furniture, home décor and gift buyers and suppliers,” said Dorothy Belshaw, executive vice president, chief marketing and digital officer for International Market Centers. “Through displays, tours and a CEU-accredited seminar, FIRST LOOK showcases the breadth and depth of on-trend product that Las Vegas Market has to offer.” FIRST LOOK’s “2020 Vision” is a collective of on-trend products and headlining hues – all of which will be reinforced in the curated displays; a CEU-accredited educational seminar on July 29; in an at-Market resource guide publication (digital version: https://www.pageturnpro.com/International-Market-Centers/91017-First-Look-Summer-2019/sdefault.html#page/1); and in two FIRST LOOK showroom tours: home furnishings on July 29; and gift on July 30. Marketgoers also will spot examples of micro themes across the gift and home spectrum, including Maximalist decorating, color drenching, menswear influences, new organics for baby, gifts for her, gifts for tweens, artisan-made personal accessories and more.
