A new annual trade event launching June 24-27, 2010: the Dallas Hospitality & Contract Design Show will be hosted by the Dallas Market Center. The new event is being created in response to the expanding number of commercial and institutional product lines available in the marketplace. More than 15,000 buyers, representing design groups in the United States, Canada, and Latin America, are being targeted to attend the show. Their portfolios include large-scale projects in hospitality, workplace, healthcare, institutional and government environments. Thousands of product lines for the built environment will be available from new and existing permanent showrooms and temporary exhibitions including: lighting, decorative accessories, interior and outdoor furniture, permanent floral, artwork, bath and bedding, rugs, tabletop, and many other categories. A record number of exhibitors in Dallas will offer product lines for commercial and institutional purposes. In response to the expanding product mix, the Dallas Hospitality & Contract Design Show will create new business channels for manufacturers and a centrally-located, convenient marketplace for designers. The new show, to be held during the Total Home & Gift Market, will allow designers to efficiently review new resources from among the more than 2000 permanent and temporary exhibitions: from lighting fixtures to chairs, wall art to permanent floral. Dallas, recognized as the international home of lighting, the U.S. center of permanent floral, and a leading marketplace for décor, remains the most cost effective business travel destination of all market cities. “What used to be a sharp line between home décor and the contract trade is now increasingly porous, and so it is logical to offer a new trade event promoting our unique cross-section of merchandise from existing and new design resources,” said Bill Winsor, president and CEO, Dallas Market Center.
