Dallas Market Center announces details of Made temp section

New category debuts at January market

DALLAS – Dallas Market Center announces the details of Made, a new category in The Temps at Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, January 17-23, 2018.

With the growing desire of customers to purchase artisan-style products, retailers are on the hunt for items that they won’t find everywhere else. In an effort to provide these unique products with interesting stories, Dallas Market Center expanded the offerings of one-of-a-kind products and created a Made category in the gift temps on the 12th floor of the World Trade Center.

This expanding category encompasses all kinds of products made in a unique way including handmade, locally made, globally made, American made, uniquely made and one-of-a-kind.

“This expanded product selection will create a whole new type of buying experience for our eager buyers,” says Kristina Johnson, vice president of trade shows for Dallas Market Center. “The organization and central location of this category will provide a new sense of ease for our buyers when they are looking to source these types of products.”

The Made category on WTC 12 is located next to the new seminar space where presentations, speakers, and events occur regularly during market. In addition, the exhibitors within this category are located near food options on the 12th floor, creating additional ease in sourcing this category.

To source additional upcycled and one-of-a-kind products, buyers can visit Market Hall for cash & carry, furniture and vintage products that can be taken home same day or via an order-writing process.

Additional new Temp areas were introduced for January Total Home & Gift Market including, Luxe Gift on the 1st floor of the Trade Mart; the Home & Design Temps on the 6th floor of the World Trade Center; Made, Gift, Gourmet and Holiday & Floral on the 12th floor of the World Trade Center as well; a special cause-related and charitable giving product section will also launch on the 12th floor of the World Trade Center; and an Women’s Apparel and Fashion Accessories on the 13th floor of the World Trade Center.
