INTEL: Sophisticated sex kits hit the Strip; World Market Center welcomes new tenant

If you’re looking for a little love on the Strip, now it’s easier to get some help.

Bunnyjuice, a manufacturer of sexual enhancement goods, has landed a few new contracts with hotels, securing its spot in minibars and retailers on Las Vegas Boulevard.

The brand’s Bunnyjuice Lovekits are available at the Treasure Island and in minibars at the MGM Grand. Guests can purchase kits featuring condoms, lubricant, toys and accessories.

“Our Bunnyjuice Lovekits treat intimacy intelligently, with a bit of whimsy and a lot of class. We’re excited that our unique approach to romance and intimacy is gaining acceptance throughout the hospitality industry, and being offered in hotel gift ships is the next step,” company President Tod Guenther said.

International Market Centers has signed a new tenant ahead of its Winter Las Vegas Market in January.

Bedroom, entertainment and youth furniture source Vaughan Furniture signed a lease for a permanent showroom as part of a new strategy to expand its distribution in the West. The Galax, Va.-based company will exhibit in a 2,600-square-foot showroom at the next Las Vegas Market, Jan. 26 to 30.

“We’ve been steadily working to build our presence in the West and having a showroom at the Las Vegas Market is a key element in that strategy,” President David Vaughan said in a statement. “This new showroom will help us reach a new group of retailers in the western U.S. and Canada who rely on the Las Vegas Market as their primary source for fresh product.”

Vaughan is targeting a mix of top 100 furniture stores and midsized and smaller independents with its new initiative. To support this region of the country, the company has added a warehouse in Ontario, Calif. It also has distribution centers in Virginia and Vietnam, where it maintains an in-stock position on its entire line.

Art Encounter opened earlier this month at the Forum Shops at Caesars, featuring Leonardo da Vinci’s sculpture “Horse and Rider,” works from Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, American painter and printmaker Thomas Moran, American pop artist Andy Warhol and Swiss sculptor-painter Alberto Giacometti.

President Brett Maly also is a celebrity of sorts, as an appraiser and authenticator who often appears on the History Channel’s show “Pawn Stars.”

The 1,250-square-foot art gallery is located near valet and Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab. Art Encounter has been serving Las Vegas since 1992. In recent years, the company has been representing distinct global artists, maintaining a custom framing service and offering certified fine art appraising to museums and private collectors.

In case you hadn’t heard, the Federal Aviation Administration announced it will begin implementing a panel’s recommendation to relax prohibitions on the use of electronic devices during certain portions of passenger flights.

In early October, the Portable Electronic Devices Aviation Rulemaking Committee issued a report stating that the onboard use of smaller electronic devices such as phones and tablets posed no risk to planes flying below 10,000 feet, provided they are not sending or receiving cell tower signals. Larger devices, such as laptops, should continue to be stowed for safety reasons, the report recommended.

“The travel community is grateful, because what’s good for the traveler is good for travel-related businesses and our economy. It’s this kind of forward thinking that will enable us to remain among the leading industries in growth and job creation,” U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow said.
