Pavilions highlights for Winter 2017 Las Vegas Mar- ket included sold out GIFT and HAND- MADE categories and ongoing expansion in DESIGN, HOME and DISCOVERIES: The Antique Vintage Marketplace. "Las Vegas Market continues to experi- ence exceptionally high levels of demand for temporary exhibition space," said Dorothy Belshaw, President of Gift Leasing, International Market Centers. "As the na- tion's fastest growing gift and home décor market, Las Vegas Market gives buyers an ever-increasing number of resources to sur- prise and delight their customers. More than 500 temporary exhibitors – including nearly 140 exhibitors who are first-time participants in Las Vegas Market – were featured in the GIFT, HOME, B HOME, HANDMADE and DESIGN cate- gories in Pavilion 1; and another 100+ more exhibitors, including 50 new-to-Mar- ket vendors, were presented in Discover- ies: The Antique Vintage Marketplace in Pavilion 2. GN Las Vegas Market Draws New Exhibitors The purchasing desires and habits of Boomers, Millennials and GenXers and the differences in how and why men and women shop for home goods are some of the topics trend analysts will address during sessions in the Innovation Theater at the 2017 Interna- tional Home + Housewares Show, March 18 - 21 at Chicago's McCormick Place complex. Four programs outlining age and gender differentiations will be among the 21 exec- utive-level educational sessions at the In- novation Theater, located in the Hall of Global Innovation in the Lakeside Center. Presentations will include discussions sur- rounding emerging Smart Home products, global lifestyle and retail trends, licensing, future food and healthy living. Presenting their research findings on age and gender topics will be Stephen Reily of Vibrant Nation; Joe Derochowski of The NPD Group; Marsha Everton and Whitney Ryan of AIMsights; and Steve Katz of Man the Kitchen. As the gender shifts in the workplace and home continue to evolve across society, a rebalancing of roles and responsibilities in the kitchen impact the consumer market- place. Opening the Theater series on Satur- day, March 18 at 11:30 a.m. with "Man the Kitchen: The Recipe for Strategic Merchan- dising," Steve Katz, creator of the Man the Kitchen brand, will offer a contrasting per- spective to the housewares industry's decades of attention to the female con- sumer. He will present intriguing insights on the growing importance of men who use and purchase kitchen tools, including the psychology of men in the kitchen and their preferences for high-performance cook- ware and appliances, which can mean higher revenue for kitchenware suppliers. On Sunday, March 19 at 10:30 a.m., Joe Derochowski, NPD's expert on food and bev- erage preferences, will present "Disrupt Today's Trends and Point Them in Your Di- rection," revealing how Boomers and Millen- nials, in their pre-children and post-children life stages, find themselves at prime decision points for home changes. "Moving into a new home or remodeling an existing home is a key life moment. There will be a significant number of new empty-nesters deciding to downsize, upsize or remodel in the next eight years," he explains. "Additionally, this older generation buys items such as slow cookers, toaster ovens, single-serve coffeemakers, at a higher rate than their Millennial children who are in a similar home-related life mo- ment. We will outline opportunities to ad- dress needs across the generations." The 2017 Show will host more than 2,200 exhibitors from around the globe showcasing their newest products in five expos to 62,000 attendees.
