WORLD MARKET CENTER LAS VEGAS SUPPORTS WITHIT
World Market Center Las Vegas has shown outstanding support of Women in the Home Industries Today (WithIt) as a key sponsor for the association’s recent WOW awards held in Charlotte, NC and by being a major industry sponsor of the group’s 10th annual Member Resource Guide.
“We recognize the challenging environment non-profits are operating in, especially now, yet the important work WithIt does for women in the industry must go on,” said Robert Maricich, president of World Market Center Las Vegas. “WithIt’s annual Education Conference and its invaluable Member Resource Guide are great resources for the industry as a whole and we are happy to support these efforts and the association.”
The Member Resource Guide, which was unveiled at the WOW awards, is being mailed to members, sponsors and industry organizations this week. Made possible, in part, by World Market Center’s support, it includes a professional introduction to WithIt and the women who support it; a resource guide index (members are cross indexed by skills, abilities, ownership, etc. and divided by supplier, manufacturer and retailer) as well as a membership directory with profiles.
Ongoing World Market Center Las Vegas support also helps further two of WithIt’s goals including building its western membership and reaching out to international members. WithIt’s multi-language literature is also provided to international visitors at Las Vegas Market.
At the upcoming Las Vegas Market, Libby Langdon, an interior designer and expert commentator on HGTV’s hit show “Small Space, Big Style” will be the featured WithIt speaker. The event will be Monday, September 14 at 2:00 PM and is open to all Las Vegas Market attendees. For more information, visit www.withit.org. Withit also will reach out to university students this market. An experienced industry panel will offer guidance on navigating our industry and career opportunities at a breakfast on Thursday, September 19th. The panel will mentor the students regarding the home furnishings industry and their personal experiences.
