The recent Total Home & Gift Market in Dallas had strong attendance and order writing including a record number of buyers attending for the first time. Dallas Market Center reported that 25% of buyers at the show were first time attendees, the largest percentage in more than ten years.

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 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.

Additional Trade Events

In addition to January Total Home and Gift Market, other trade events will offer buyers a safe and welcoming marketplace in the coming weeks. Those events include Dallas Men’s Show (January 21-February 2) and Total Home & Gift Market (March 23-26), held together with Lightovation, Apparel & Accessories Market, AETA International Trade Show, and KidsWorld.
