LA Mart announces return of temporary exhibits during markets

LA Mart, the West Coast’s largest gift & home wholesale buying resource announced that they will once again produce 2nd floor temporary exhibits that will debut during the 2018 Winter Market, January 18 -22, 2018. TEMPS ON 2 will be open from Friday January 19 through Monday January 22, 2018.  This venture is occurring in part due to buyer and exhibitor requests to provide a much needed new resource for high-end temporary exhibits in the Los Angeles marketplace.   The newly remodeled state of the art 2nd floor exhibition hall, which will be the home of TEMPS ON 2, offers a fresh approach in contrast to other staid trade-hall shows, by offering an ultra-modern setting that includes polished concrete flooring, complimentary Wi-Fi, LED lighting, and first-class production services throughout the hall’s contemporary setting.

Exhibitor advantages

An additional upgrade for exhibitors who join the LA Mart’s TEMPS ON 2 is that their booth package comes complete with an actual drywall, hard wall system, an individual booth lighting package, free drayage and an inclusive interior booth package all at a cost that is well below what pipe and drape booths across the country currently charge.  “LA Mart is a non-union building that is open every week day so it has a built-in infrastructure to expertly manage the needs for an exhibitor or showroom anytime.  Since we operate and support 5-day a week trade showrooms here, superb service is already in place and, at our gift and home shows, exhibitors can expect an extremely well-oiled machine to accommodate all of their exhibition needs,” cites Frank Joens, Senior Vice President, General Manager, LA Mart.

A return to what works for Los Angeles

LA Mart is elated to return to its long-standing third week of January dates (18-22, 2018) for their Winter Market as buyers and exhibitors have been asking for those dates in LA and for the LA Mart to produce temporary exhibits again. LA Mart created and produced a temporary show in the mid 2000’s with outstanding results and once again plans to create a buyer experience of having fun while finding great merchandise as they shop TEMPS ON 2.  “We are extremely excited to give the customers what they have been asking for; high-end, curated, beautifully- produced order writing temporary exhibits, that are located at the LA Mart where our loyal shoppers have been discovering products for years.  TEMPS ON 2 produced by the LA Mart is the perfect solution and answers the buyer’s needs during market time in Los Angeles,” explains Nora Wade, Director of Sales, TEMPS ON 2.

Diamond anniversary in 2018

LA Mart is also proud to announce that 2018 will be the 60th anniversary of the building and will be holding celebrations throughout their Winter Market January 18-22, 2018.  For more information on TEMPS ON 2 produced by LA Mart, call 213-763-5833 or visit
