Dallas Market Center To Open 95 Percent Of Permanent Showrooms

Dallas Market Center announced that more than 95% of permanent showrooms will be open for all of its August markets including Total Home & Gift Market, to be held August 19 to 25.

“We’re extremely pleased with the high level of participation for August events,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO. “Thank you to our showrooms and temps for their consistent communication, flexibility, and partnership on strict health and safety measures. The result is a series of summer events with the most comprehensive collection of new products available anywhere.”

Among the exhibitors in permanent spaces are 67 showrooms that are new, expanded or relocated. Highlights in the gift, home, holiday, floral, and housewares neighborhoods include eight debuts in Gourmet Market.

To help with product discovery given all of the new showrooms, the Dallas Market Center app features a section of New To Market, highlighting new exhibitors debuting in Dallas in August.

Among the 450 Temps showing across all August trade events, the Temps at Total Home & Gift Market (August 19-22) will feature hundreds of brands across more than ten product neighborhoods. Standouts such as Mason Jar, Mugsby, O-Venture and Packed Party,  will be featured.

The market center previously announced that pre-registration for August markets has accelerated by more than 35% following the recent debut of a new FastPass registration system. The FastPass, available from the front-page of the Dallas Market Center website, is a one-step pre-registration for buyers that delivers an immediate email confirmation and barcode. Recent improvements have made the process of registering for the FastPass easier and the on-site process to enter Market with a FastPass will be quicker and low contact.

Over the past two weeks, pre-registration has accelerated following the debut of the new FastPass, along with encouraging public health news from local officials. COVID-19 cases in Dallas County have sharply declined by 50% over the last month. Furthermore, the latest data show that Dallas Market Center is located in the least vulnerable ZIP Code in Dallas County.

Strict health and safety measures are in place to guide all August events, the Dallas Market Center said.
