The heat may be intense outside, but inside World Market Center at Las Vegas Market, new introductions will be scorching.

From Sunday, July 29 through Aug, 1, retailers, interior designers, exhibitors and tastemakers will take on Las Vegas Market, looking for new products, trends and networking opportunities. This edition is packed with seminars, panels and demonstrations, so no matter what you're looking for at Vegas, you're likely to find it — and then some. If you haven't already, check out our Las Vegas Market preview and see what hot, new products will be hitting showrooms.

As you hit the market this morning, prepare for the day with our highlights happening at the 2018 summer edition of Las Vegas Market.

Tips for easy registration

There's nothing worse than waiting in an endless line to get your badge and finally hit the market. At Las Vegas Market, it can be even worse because registration and badge pick-up happens outside in the heat.

To make registration easier and faster for you, follow these easy tips:

- Register online. If you haven't already, do it. You'll save time, and you likely won't have to stand outside.

- Don't forget your QR code. After you registered online, you received a confirmation email with your QR code. Make sure you have that email handy before you leave for the market. Having it available will speed up your time at check-in.

- Take advantage of scan-and-go-opportunities at the Aria or Golden Nugget. If you're staying at the Aria or Golden Nugget and taking the free shuttle to the market, then you can register right away and hope the shuttle to the market. Plan to get to the shuttle drop-off point a little bit earlier to allow for registration.
