As we elevate our market’s offerings and position Las Vegas Design Center as the region’s largest and premier furnishings and design resource—we are delighted to deliver complementary events that serve our A&D community, both on and off market,” said Paul Watson, vice president of design for International Market Centers, parent company of Las Vegas Market. “Design Icon is the centerpiece of our designer programming for the upcoming Winter Market, and as such, we are pleased to present Alexa Hampton as the recipient of our 2013 Design Icon award. Her industry tenure, accomplishments and influence make her a natural fit for this award and we are most fortunate to have her present market attendees with highlights and influences of her illustrious career.”
