03182020 IMC Closes World Market Center Las Vegas to Public in Compliance with Nevada Governor's Order

LAS VEGAS -- In line with the forced closure of Nevada casinos and non-essential businesses, International Market Centers (IMC) closed the World Market Center and Las Vegas Design Center to the public for 30 days as of March 18, at 12 noon.
The 30-day closure, ordered by Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak, aims to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
"The situation in Nevada has evolved rapidly and we are reacting to information as soon as we receive it," said Bob Maricich, CEO of IMC. "We are navigating an unprecedented situation in real time and we appreciate our customers' patience and partnership as we work to minimize business disruption connected with these new government mandates."
IMC tenants and staff still will have access to the buildings for essential business support, provided appropriate social distancing is observed. Additionally, construction of the EXPO at World Market Center Las Vegas, a new 315,000-square-foot exhibition facility in downtown Las Vegas, is expected to continue, although distancing requirements will be implemented. The EXPO, which is scheduled to open for the Summer 2020 Las Vegas Market (July 26-30), will house Las Vegas Market's temporary exhibits.
Through the Nevada Governor's order, all non-essential businesses statewide, including hotels and casinos will close for 30 days. Only businesses deemed essential, such as grocery stores, medical offices, pharmacies and financial institutions, will remain open. The move is similar to those taken in at least 10 other states, including New York, California, Ohio and Michigan, in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.
Las Vegas Market is the leading home furnishings and gift market in the western U.S., presenting 4,300+ furniture, home décor and gift resources in an unrivaled market destination. Las Vegas Market features thousands of furniture, home décor and gift lines, allowing for cross-category commerce among these industries. Summer 2020 Las Vegas Market runs July 26 -30, 2020, at World Market Center Las Vegas. For more information, visit www.lasvegasmarket.com.
