In 2014 Dallas Market Center will debut The One – It’s All About the Dress, a strategic brand refresh and combination of its Bridal and Prom markets held each March and September.

Dallas’ The One launches a new initiative to further invest in the success of bridal and prom retailers from across the United States with a focus west of the Mississippi as well as Canada, Mexico and South America. The Market will partner with buyers to devote resources throughout the year to help them achieve their business goals with distinct and unique offerings including trend information, online seminars, social media activities and much more. The One will also feature special guests and industry experts to address relevant topics and further aid retailers in their success.
