We loved hosting you!


First and foremost, I’d like to thank you for attending our 2016, Summer Market here at the LA Mart!  The building was bustling and showrooms have been reporting that business was brisk and that average order size was way up.  I am told that buyers were here to buy and that attendees were buying and not just shopping.  People needed to restock their stores, and they were placing orders!  This is great news and it tells me that business is steady and that folks enjoy the experience they have while visiting the LA Mart.
Here are some of the things that people who attended the LA Mart Summer Market were saying:
“The show is fantastic, very well done. We were pleasantly surprised that the La Mart stays open Monday through Friday because most places and showrooms don’t offer that!” Dyana De Costa, Toots & Me, Danville, California
“The LA Mart showrooms always have new and exciting product. The staff is very friendly and the reps are always super accommodating. We love coming to the show!”  Emily Miller, Firefly, Paso Robles, California
“It is like my buyers refuse to shop anywhere else but Los Angeles. They know they can find everything they need in Los Angeles. We made great sales in this year’s Market.”  John Burke, Account Manager, Fine Lines Showroom
“It has been a beautiful and amazing show. I found some really unique items that I’ve not seen anywhere else. Plus, the building is immaculate and everyone here is so warm and welcoming. It makes you want to come back, and I will!”
D. Dekterov, Retail Consultant, Upland California
“Even though I may occasionally go to another show, I always go to the LA Mart to support the wonderful family of showrooms and their fantastic product mix. Customer Service at the LA Mart is outstanding. It’s the best in the country!”
Barbara Cheatley- Retailer, Claremont CA
“We’ve had a really nice steady show and everyone has been writing good orders.  It seems as though our average order size is up. Buyers are buying and not just looking!  Buyers, manufacturers and sales reps are very excited that temps are moving from the LA Convention Center to the LA Mart second floor exhibition Hall next winter.  That is a really great thing for everyone!”
Joanne Rackow, Joanne and Company, LA Mart showroom
Lastly, in case you have not heard the great news about Winter 2017 Market, LAMKT Temporaries are moving to our fantastic trade hall on the 2nd floor of the LA Mart! (Order writing only)   Cash and carry and Kentia Hall will remain at the LA Convention Center.  This means for those of you that want to make best use of your time when writing orders you will be able to find great temporary booths right here in our building by simply visiting our second floor.  This will be an amazing time saver and will help you be able to maximize your shopping time as it creates an easier-than-ever shopping experience when you shop the LA Gift & Home Market NEXT Winter, 2017.  Watch for much more information to come, regarding this.
Once again, we appreciate your business, your patronage and your ongoing support of the LA Mart. And whether you are local and continue to support your hometown Mart, or you travel in from out of town to be a part of our excitement and family atmosphere customer service, please know that you matter to us and we hope to continue to provide you with a great shopping experience as the friendliest, style forward and unique mart in thecountry.
