World Market Center announced that it is again planning to roll out the red carpet exclusively for furniture industry sales representatives prior to the start of the Summer 2007 Las Vegas Market with food, fun and music.
World Market Center’s special “Rep Appreciation Day” will be Sunday, January 29, 2007, and will offer food, beverages and hospitality throughout the day for all attending sales reps. Events for Rep Appreciation Day will run throughout the day in the Grand Atrium of Building B.
Following breakfast and lunch, the day will culminate with a happy hour and music from the Good Vibrations Band, Las Vegas’ premier tribute to the spirit and music of the Beach Boys.
The First Rep Appreciation Day took place the day before the January 2007 Las Vegas Market and was an overwhelming success with the rep community, when World Market Center devoted an entire day of festivities to recognize the important efforts of furniture sales representatives.
“Rep Appreciation Day is our way of showing the rep community how much we appreciate them as a driving force for the industry,” said Harvey Dondero, chief executive officer of World Market Center. “We hope that all industry reps find time to stop by, have something to eat and drink and enjoy themselves before the start to an exciting market week.”
“We are elated that World Market Center is planning a second Rep Appreciation Day at the start of the July Market to show their continued support and recognition of the sales representative,” said Kathy Parks, executive director of International Home Furnishings Rep Association (IHFRA).
Parks added that complimentary food and drink, along with the special entertainment, is an added convenience for the attending reps.
“After a long day setting up, it’s a treat for them to be able to relax while enjoying music before they head back to their hotels,” Parks said. “The event also spurs camaraderie among the attending reps. As an organization, we also use Rep Appreciation Day as an opportunity to highlight the benefits of our group to reps who may not already be members.”
