DALLAS—December 14, 2020—Dallas Market Center, the leading lifestyle marketplace for retailers and interior designers, announces that hundreds of temporary exhibitors will be showcased across its marketplace in four distinct neighborhoods during the upcoming Total Home & Gift Market.

From gifts to fashion accessories, health and wellness to vintage and artisan, this full marketplace of Temps offers unmatched product discovery from leading brands, artisans, and emerging companies inside a socially distanced marketplace making extra efforts to keep all visitors safe.

During the January Total Home & Gift Market, the Temps will take place January 6-9, when buyers may enjoy daily hospitality and explore four neighborhoods:

  • Trade Mart 1: Luxe Gift Temps
  • World Trade Center 12: Gift, Home & Design Temps
  • World Trade Center 13: Apparel & Fashion Accessories
  • Market Hall: Cash & Carry, Artisan Cash & Carry, Vintage Home Décor, Antiques

Hundreds of first-time and returning exhibitors will showcase hot new products and brands, including: Amish Farm Soap (Gift), Ann Gish (Luxe), Art by Intuition (Gift/In Demand), CliC Eyewear (Gift), Couture Lamps and Home Furnishings (Luxe), Creative Brazil (Artisan Cash & Carry), Drinks on Me Coasters (Gift), Dry Divas (Gift), Elite Accessories (Luxe), GO Home (Home Décor Cash & Carry), L&Y USA (Gift/In Demand), LZ Aurand Art (Artisan Cash & Carry), Recherché Home Furnishings (Home Décor), Taste-CBD (Emerging Gift), and Voyage Living (Artisan Cash & Carry). Expanding exhibitors include Ethan & Associates and B.S. Trading.

“Having such a large selection of Temps complementing permanent showrooms is another manner by which Dallas is leading the way in January,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “We have tremendous support from exhibitors who view Dallas as their best opportunity in the new year to reach loyal and new buyers.”

Expansion of the Temps into Market Hall took place because of high demand. Initial plans were to showcase Temps only in the World Trade Center and Trade Mart. This increased demand for space is driven by three factors:

  1. Dallas’ track record of producing successful shows for more than eight months;
  2. The calendar placement of Dallas as the first market of the year;
  3. Buyer demand for vintage, one-of-a-kind products, and home décor.

Special highlights of the Temps appear in the latest issue of Spark magazine, Dallas Market Center’s pre-market magazine. The print edition has been distributed to more than 50,000 retailers and interior designers; the digital edition is available at dallasmarketcenter.com.

Space is still available for exhibitors in the Temps, and Dallas Market Center is offering participating exhibitors free shipment to Atlanta following the Dallas show.

Health & Safety Guidelines Supporting Buyer Comfort

Supporting the comfort, health and safety of all attendees, the market center continues measures that include mandatory face covering and temperature screening for every person entering the marketplace every day. Other efforts include spacing of temporary exhibitors, enhanced cleaning with hospital grade products, hundreds of hand sanitizing stations, limited food service, no gatherings, and signage for social distancing. Along with these new steps, there are safety measures that are part of the design of the marketplace: open parking, large entryways, quick registration in multiple areas, wide hallways, multiple escalators to each floor, and showrooms with controlled access to allow for the appropriate distance between customers.
