California—MMPI and L.A. Mart® announce a long-term commitment for the California Gift Show® (CGS). The Market’s winter and summer show dates at L.A. Mart and Los Angeles Convention Center have been scheduled through July 2019. This announcement comes in advance of the much-awaited summer 2012 California Gift Show, July 25 – July 30. 

Hosted bi-annually in January and July, CGS is the West Coast’s preeminent Gift + Home Market underscoring the region’s distinction for both product innovation and its influence on consumer purchasing habits. CGS reinforces the mystique of the California lifestyle with a robust product presentation of 1,200+ temporary exhibitors and permanent showrooms at its two conveniently accessible downtown Los Angeles show locations.
“CGS continues to emphasize the California-centric focus that is the cornerstone of our competitive differentiation,” said Jeff Sampson, vice president of marketing, L.A. Mart/L.A. Mart Design Center/California Gift Show. “Many permanent showroom and temporary exhibitor resources are unique to the region, offering retailers selections unavailable elsewhere across the U.S. We remain confident in our Los Angeles venues as the must-shop destinations to source both innovative California designed and made products, as well as those produced internationally.”
