HTI Buying Group announces January Vendor Showcase at Dallas Market Center

Dallas Market Center announces the HTI Buying Group vendor showcase during the Total Home & Gift Market in January 2016. The vendor showcase is a chance for HTI members to have a sneak preview of new merchandise and exclusive show specials.

“We are embarking on the next phase of our business with a vendor showcase in Dallas,” KC Lapiana, president of HTI Buying Group said. “Dallas Market Center provides a central location, a steady base of loyal buyers and the opportunity to grow our membership.”

After a successful showcase last January, HTI chose Dallas Market Center as the location for their January 2016 vendor showcase. With a strong focus on delivering additional value to its members and the industry, HTI gives their buyers access to more than 20,000 gift and home décor lines at the Total Home & Gift Market.

“As more consumer purchasing dollars move towards high-end housewares and gift, businesses partnering with HTI have the ability to increase their profits and extend their consumer base,” Cindy Morris president and CEO of Dallas Market Center said. “Dallas Market Center is a paramount buyer market capable of meeting HTI and their members’ unique needs.”

The HTI Buying Group offers independent kitchen and tabletop specialty retailers the opportunity to buy products and programs from member vendors on a corporate discount. They provide training, information and the resources necessary to improve sales while allowing members to maintain autonomy and independence.
