IFAM 2005 Will Introduce Complete Home Entertainment Pavilion

Furniture World News


Producers of the International Furniture & Accessories Marketplace in Las Vegas have announced the July 2005 IFAM Las Vegas Market will include a complete Home Entertainment Pavilion. This section will incorporate a large number of vendors who offer Home Entertainment Furniture, Big Screen TVs etc., and a wide range of accessories. This new group of exhibitors will be able to serve the needs of the broad range of retail operations that are now looking at the fast growing home theater market as a very viable revenue stream. IFAM Show Manager, Shane O’Sheeran stated, “We want to offer the retailers the most diverse products lines possible to facilitate the highest possible profit margins for their respective operations. Home theater product purchases are a fast growing consumer trend, and as that trend continues more retailers will need to look at this category very seriously to remain competitive”. O’Sheeran went on to say, “Consumers now have options out in the market for everything from a theater-in-a-box, to lounge chairs with a big screen TV, all the way to full blown home theater room concepts and a broad range of accessories. Just as the outdoor furniture and accessories market is growing because more and more consumers are staying home and investing in that environment, so the home theater market is seeing the same affects and therefore the same increase in market sales. We want to insure that IFAM offers the retailers every market share opportunity available. The addition of this Home Theater Pavilion will provide that opportunity where other furniture markets do not necessarily serve those needs”. The International Furniture & Accessories Marketplace, whose inaugural market took place this February is one of the events that will make up an important part of the Las Vegas Furniture Market. As the first International furniture event ever held in Las Vegas and therefore the premier furniture event in the city, IFAM will be a mainstay anchor for what could possibly become one of the most important furniture markets in the country.
