LAS VEGAS ‘THE (A) LIST’ PROGRAM FEATURES CELEBRITY DESIGNERS

LAS VEGAS, NV – November 21, 2023 – ANDMORE launches “The (A) List,” a new multi-modal influencer program centered on amplifying design and retail trends through the unique perspectives of top-tier designers, this January at Las Vegas Market, giving buyers a deep dive into the must-haves of the season. The (A) Listers, comprised of three established designers and industry trailblazers, share insider Market knowledge on the @LasVegasMarket Instagram, collaborate on a “Build A Room” initiative and host a trend-driven seminar as they guide followers through the world of design, starting at the forthcoming market, January 28 – February 1, 2024, at World Market Center Las Vegas.

“The (A) List program combines elite insights with topical trends to build an ongoing community centered around design inspiration,” said Karen Olson, ANDMORE executive vice president, chief marketing officer. “With these three tastemakers spearheading dynamic discovery, this program covers the breadth, depth and innovation of Las Vegas Market through an expert lens.”

In addition to showroom sneak peeks and Market tips, the (A) Listers inspire the design community through interactive projects and stories with “Build A Room,” an exclusive curation of furniture, home décor and gift items from Las Vegas Market exhibitors from which each designer will create a display concept that exemplifies the new and now of home design. Build A Room designs will be previewed in the Las Vegas Market Preview Guide and come to life through physical displays at the winter market.
