Many of the top Las Vegas hotels and restaurants will join market officials to welcome the industry to Las Vegas. A “Taste of Las Vegas” will be showcased on every level allowing each of the ten floors to be a unique destination for attendees and special guests. WMC will be the largest trade complex in the world dedicated to home furnishings when its 57-acre integrated campus is fully developed to encompass 12 million square feet in 2015.
