Surfaces and World Market Center Las Vegas are forming a strategic partnership in order to provide a more compelling event for each of their supporters, the organizations stated in a joint press release. Highlights of the partnership include acceptance of each show’s registration credentials, transportation vouchers and discounts on education.

The partnership will continue in 2011 with both events taking place in Las Vegas. In addition, StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas will co-locate with Surfaces at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.  

“We’re extremely excited about this partnership and the numerous opportunities it brings,” said Dana Teague, director of Surfaces. “We view Las Vegas Market as a complementary event to ours. We feel by joining forces we are providing our attendees the opportunity to experience two shows in one week saving on expenses, which is essential right now.”

“Synergies between the shows will be a great service to exhibitors and attendees alike,” said Philip McKay, Senior Vice President at World Market Center. “We are excited to further offer a great market experience for these audiences.”

As part of their on-going efforts to attract interior designers, Surfaces will host a Designer Day on Wednesday, Feb. 3 that includes a behind-the-scenes tour of Encore, the brand new sister property of Wynn Las Vegas, a Speed Trending tour of the show floor and luncheon featuring Kim Myles of HGTV’s Myles of Style.

Las Vegas Market attendees will receive a 25% discount on Designer Day events. In addition to a strong display of new products, Las Vegas Market hosts an array of seminar series that focus on design trends and business strategies.

Las Vegas Market, to be held February 1-5 at World Market Center Las Vegas, is an international home furnishings showcase that features more than 1,500 manufacturers in a broad array of categories including floor coverings, home furnishings, accessories and more.
