LA Mart adding ‘immediate delivery’ element
LA Mart is adding a brand new temporary exhibit category and venue to its winter and summer markets. TEMPS Immediate Delivery (TEMPS ID) will exemplify a new generation for Los Angeles’ cash and carry needs featuring an upscale product mix, a state-of-the-art venue, and an overall enhanced market experience. Until now, having an “immediate delivery” element as part of LA Mart’s major markets, has never been done. This is a first in the LA Mart’s 60-year history.
TEMPS ID will stage in the LA Mart’s newly renovated 1st floor exhibit hall and will reintroduce the popular division of cash and carry to Los Angeles’ wholesale marketplace. Like their order-writing counterpart TEMPS ON 2, the new TEMPS ID booth package will include hard wall booths, a six-foot table, chairs, and complimentary drayage all at a more price effective cost than the previous convention center show.
“When the Los Angeles Convention Center discontinued their gift show in early summer, we recognized this was the ideal opportunity to fill the void left behind by the once thriving Kentia Hall cash and carry section at the convention center show,” said Frank Joens Sr. VP, General Manager LA Mart. “Our version, will be a major improvement and will include a beautifully curated product mix in a gorgeous new space to enhance the overall Market experience that only the LA Mart can provide!”
These two exciting temporary exhibiting opportunities are an outstanding addition to the already successful LA Mart product offerings that include some 10,000 lines artfully displayed throughout the LA Mart permanent showrooms. The LA Mart, boasting the largest day-to-day buyer and designer traffic of any venue in the west, offers shopping hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with an impressive array of lines that cannot be found anywhere else in the Southwest and Western United States.
The LA Mart Winter Market will be held Thursday, Jan. 17 through Monday, Jan. 21, 2019 with TEMPS ON 2 and TEMPS ID opening Friday, Jan. 18 and continuing through Monday, Jan. 21.
