Dallas Market in growth

Dallas’ Total Housewares & Gourmet Market is now fastest growing Housewares Show in the country

A record setting number of housewares resources will mark the June edition of Dallas’ Total Housewares & Gourmet Market, now the fastest growing housewares show in the country. In addition to the expanding resources, the heart of the housewares neighborhood in the 2,500 aisle of the Trade Mart will undergo décor upgrades to create a stylish, welcoming destination.

Over the past two years housewares resources in Dallas have grown by more than 50 percent, including new and expanded corporate showrooms, rep rooms and a shared showroom space that debuted in January.

“Our new housewares area in the Trade Mart is being redesigned to reflect our commitment to providing buyers the best housewares resources in the country,” Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center, says. “After successfully debuting the housewares shared showspace in January, we continue to grow the surrounding spaces with new housewares lines including Zwilling J.A. Henckels, Dexas, Le Creuset and tag.”

Before June Market, remodeling including new lighting, signage, décor pieces and a demo area will be installed in the Trade Mart. The demo area, which will be in the housewares shared showspace in Trade Mart 2535, will give exhibitors an area to showcase their products and buyers the opportunity to discover new resources.

The Housewares Training and Information Group, HTI continues their partnership with the Market Center by offering retailers the ability to buy on a corporate discount plan. HTI will offer members buying opportunities at the Total Housewares & Gourmet Market, June 22-28.

Dallas Market Center will host the Housewares Block Party during market, Thursday, June 23, 4-6 p.m. in Trade Mart 2535 to celebrate the expanded space and welcome new and returning exhibitors and buyers. The event is sponsored by Gourmet Insider.
