DALLAS – May 1, 2020 – Dallas Market Center, the only complete lifestyle marketplace in North America and a hub of daily commerce and global trade events for retailers and interior designers, has announced that its summer edition of Total Home & Gift Market will move from June to new dates, August 19-25, while additional, smaller format buying events will be held throughout the summer.

The August trade event, which includes permanent showrooms as well as temporary exhibits, will draw exhibitors representing top brands, retail buyers from leading independent stores, and top interior designers to review and place orders for best-sellers and new products debuting at the show. Earlier summer buying events will offer retailers the opportunity to make appointments and place orders for immediate delivery items as well as fall and holiday delivery products to help refresh shelves and entice customers back into the store. Buyers are being encouraged to check with showrooms for appointments and availability prior to visiting the market center.
