International Market Centers

  • International Market Centers (IMC) is the parent company of the World Market Center (WMC) in Las Vegas. At 5 million square feet, WMC is the world’s largest showroom for the home and hospitality furnishings industry.

    Throughout most of the year, WMC is open to the public. However, twice a year (in January and July), it is closed for what are called the Winter and Summer Las Vegas Markets (#LVMKT), and only authorized retail store buyers, designers and their staff are granted access.

    PuTTin OuT has worked with both WMC (as the host resident Hot Spot of Winter/Summer Las Vegas Market) and IMC directly to provide social media marketing and other marketing consulting assistance. The results have been remarkable. You can read about them in separate case studies or review some of the highlights below.
