ABSTRACT
The article reports that motion upholstery exhibitors at the World Market Center (WMC) in Las Vegas, Nevada in July 2006 had slow sales because most buyers were kept away by the heat in Las Vegas. They however hope to recover sales in January 2007 when the WMC Building B opens. Barcalounger promoted its West Coast warehouse program. Flexsteel's Graham motion sofa was popular to buyers. Dutailier offer products with glider rockers and ottomans. Douglas offered more decorative wood trims.
