American-made products from nearly 40 companies will make up a new exhibition, Made in U.S.A., at the upcoming Winter Las Vegas Market, Jan. 30 - Feb. 2. The 5,000-sf pavilion will showcase distinctive American-made furniture and home décor products and collections, highlighting the growing trend toward American-made goods in the industry.

“As more and more consumers move toward the trend in supporting and buying local and domestically made products, Las Vegas Market wanted to present a single destination on the West Coast for those companies to showcase their goods,” said Margaret Powers, vice president of tradeshows/Las Vegas. “This new pavilion gives all our manufacturers an opportunity to highlight their made in U.S.A. wares while providing buyers one-stop-shopping for these highly sought-after products. In particular we think our growing international buyer base will be anxious to visit this uniquely American market destination.”

Vintage pieces of local Las Vegas neon history through the world-famous Neon Museum and Boneyard along with select pieces of historical American neon from the heyday of Las Vegas glitz and glamour will be highlighted throughout the pavilion.

A special highlight of this new pavilion will be Las Vegas Market’s partnership with Rick Dale and his shop, Rick’s Restoration, featured in the hit History Channel show “American Restoration.” Rick’s Restoration will showcase their one-of-a-kind pieces featured on the show, as well as the before-and-after looks of these professionally-restored pieces of American history.

Attendees are invited to celebrate with a “Party in the U.S.A.” event Jan. 31 from 4-6 p.m. featuring all-American fare including sliders, mac-n-cheese, special desserts and signature cocktails, adding to the domestically-inspired party.
