LOS ANGELES-The California Market Center (CMC) has formed alliances with the Gift & Home Trade Association (GHTA) and the Accessories Resource Team in its ongoing effort to expand its gift and home showcase.
The three organizations will work together to enhance the market center’s gift and home trade shows. Founded in 2000, GHTA is the professional trade association for the gift and home industry. It provides opportunities for its members to exchange ideas and network with industry leaders.
The Accessories Resource Team, established in 1988, encompasses manufacturers, retailers, importers, sales representatives and other professionals in the home accents industry. It holds networking events, conferences, seminars, workshops and round tables geared toward supporting and building the home accents business.
Gerry Seibel, the market center’s vice president of new business development for gift and home, said the center’s new relationships with GHTA and the Accessories Resource Team “will reinforce our efforts to establish the CMC as a one-stop destination for gift, home decor and interior design.”
