Running for 8 years as the signature design program at Las Vegas Market, Ahead of the Curve, has attracted the industry’s biggest and brightest design luminaries. Over the last decade, an extraordinary line up of designers have participated including Anthony Baratta, Betsy Burnham, Barclay Butera, Timothy Corrigan, Thom Filicia, Philip Gorrivan, Alexa Hampton, Darren Henault, Laura Kirar, Amy Lau, Jeffrey Alan Marks, Mary McDonald, Michelle Nussbaumer, Windsor Smith, Nathan Turner, Ron Woodson and Vicente Wolf — led by author and stylist, Susanna Salk.
Ahead of the Curve was envisioned as means to connect an emerging home furnishings market (Las Vegas Market) with national media outlets and to elevate the perception that the market was lacking in high end resources. Ahead of the Curve manifests as multi-channel event that focuses on new products and fashion-forward trends available at the market, as scouted by the top interior designers in the country. Part pre-taped and part live segment, Ahead of the Curve showcases what’s next in home furnishings — live from Las Vegas — in a fun and informative panel discussion. Original content is further repurposed for online, social media and digital marketing purposes — drawing in thousands of viewers each season.
