Las Vegas-based International Market Centers (IMC) and Emerald have announced a partnership between IMC’s Summer 2021 Las Vegas Market and Emerald’s HD Expo + Conference and ASD Market Week, offering buyers and suppliers cross-category exposure and opportunities across all three B2B events in Las Vegas this August.

This partnership allows IMC and Emerald to co-promote and cross-populate these three events for the first time, with benefits that include a joint marketing campaign, complimentary shuttle transportation between each of the venues, and reciprocal credentialing for attendees.

“IMC strives to cooperate, rather than to compete, with other concurrent markets to create more opportunities for buyers and sellers,” says Dorothy Belshaw, Chief Customer & Marketing Officer for IMC. “This type of partnership can make the difference for buyers and suppliers deciding which markets to attend. Together, we enable our exhibitors to have greater ROI on their market participation and create effective, efficient and compelling market experiences for attendees.”

The three trade events will intersect in Las Vegas this August due to each market’s COVID-related date changes. HD Expo + Conference originally was scheduled to run in May; and both ASD and Las Vegas Market originally were scheduled to run in July.

“Emerald has enjoyed a long-time partnership with IMC through our prior cooperation during ASD Market Week, and we are pleased to extend that collaboration to include the HD Expo + Conference audience,” adds Karalynn Sprouse, EVP/Merchandise Group of Emerald. “The fortuitous intersection of these three events this August has resulted in a synergy of our unique offerings that enhances the buying and selling opportunities for our customers.”

Show dates and hours for each of the three markets is as follows:
