TIPS FOR BUYERS

    1. Time management: Managing your time while at Market Week is crucial. We recommend buyers make appointments with popular brands early, as they tend to book up quickly. We also suggest allotting time to walk the buildings, because sometimes the biggest successes are the showrooms you stumble upon by accident.
    2. Pre-plan: Buyers who come with a clear vision for what kind of styles and brands they are looking for will have a more successful market experience. Know your shopper and research brands you might be interested in ahead of time. We also recommend visiting trade show and showroom buildings’ websites and pre-register when possible. Lastly, as a buyer, make sure your inventory and budget levels are well planned out before your visit.
    3. Network: Building strong connections while attending LA Market Week can lead to lasting partnerships with vendors. Bring business cards and always follow up with new partners. Take advantage of educational and networking events whenever possible.

 

BONUS TIPS

  • Free parking at the CMC for registered buyers.
