Textiles execs tour market center.

LAS VEGAS -- A group of executives from the home textiles industry toured the World Market Center under the aegis of building management during the recent summer market here.

Dave Palmer, general manager of the WMC, led the group, which included representatives of several home textiles suppliers, including Springs Global, Croscill, Ex-Cell and Peking Handicraft. WMC did not respond to an inquiry about the tour, but in the past has said it is seeking to attract a broad cross-section of the total home furnishings market, beyond its furniture core.

While some smaller home textiles companies currently exhibit, largely in the temporary portion of the market, none of the larger players in the business, including those represented on the tour, currently exhibit here.

The textiles market remains based largely in New York City, but because of friction between permanent showroom exhibitors and the temporary show run by George Little Management, the market is spread over two weeks. This setup, and the confusion it has caused, has been a source of unhappiness among exhibitors.
