Dallas January 2017

Home » The Show » Dallas January 2017

Are you tired of coming home from a gift show with just reorders from the same old customers you’ve been writing with for years? …You could have achieved the same goal with just a few phone calls.

New Accounts Are the Key to Success

Every studio business loses a few customers each year as they are rotated out to make room for new work… Finding NEW stores is the hardest job you have, but you don’t find enough new stores at those old shows…

Where Do You NEED New Accounts?

Look at your customer list and see where you are over saturated and where you have “gaps.”   I’ll bet the middle of the country is a prime opportunity for picking up new accounts.  And that’s just what the Dallas Market does so well.

Show Attendance is Shifting

With the loss of the Chicago Gift Show buyers from straight through the middle of the country… all the way up to Michigan enjoy their January trip to Dallas.  The weather is great, and the Dallas Market Center is organized for real efficiency.

Dallas Puts Handmade Upfront

The American Made Show made a big splash at the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market last year and buyer feedback was so enthusiastic that Dallas Market Center  is now putting us front and center with all temps on 12!  While other shows push handmade off to the side, or the back… Dallas puts you upfront where every buyer will see your work!

This January, coinciding with the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, the American Made Show returns to the World Trade Center in Dallas Temps on 12!  We’ll present the works of great American-made studios in this prime location.

While a full 10×10 space is the more popular booth size at $2595. Dallas understand the needs of start-ups and is offering a limited number of 6×10 booths at only $1595!  Limited space is available, so be sure to apply for the American Made Show at Dallas Market Center today!

Here’s why our exhibitors love Dallas:

  • A NEW MARKET FOR EAST AND WEST COAST ARTISTS 80% of the buyers at DMC come from the central states, providing new accounts for our exhibitors. In fact, 70% of DMC buyers only attend Dallas. They do not go to New York, Las Vegas or Atlanta.
  • YOUNGER BUYERS Dallas is an industry leader in attracting the highest number of buyers in the coveted age demographic of 25-44 years old.
  • CROSSOVER BUYERS 93% of DMC buyers shop 8 or more categories. Dallas offers retailers the most diversity in product category offerings.
  • SUPERBUYERS Dallas attracts high-volume casino buyers, resort buying groups, major catalogs, department stores and online retailers.
  • MORE THAN A GIFT SHOW Product categories at the World Trade Center at DMC include Home, Handmade Gift, sculpture, Handmade Fashion & Accessories, Bath & Body, Kids, and American Made.
  • SPENDING POWER. Many DMC buyers are located within the strongest economic zone in the U.S. and have loyal, trend-savvy customers with disposable income to spend.
