DALLAS – September 19, 2019 – Dallas Market Center, home of the largest residential lighting marketplace in North America, has announced event dates through 2023 for Lightovation—Dallas International Lighting Show. The winter edition will take place one week earlier than previous shows in order to align with the Total Home & Gift Market and create a “see it first, buy it first, sell it first” marketplace.
Dallas Market Center previously announced a date shift to a first position in January 2020 following input from a range of customers including sales representatives, exhibitors, and retailers. The consensus was the earlier dates in January would work best and provide both buyers and sellers with clear advantages including the first opportunity to source new products, first access to in-stock merchandise, and the exclusive opportunity to explore new categories of products during the entire run of multiple January markets in Dallas. The new dates in January also provide additional distance between Lightovation and the International Builders’ Show, The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, and Design & Construction Week as well as the European trade event Maison & Objet.
Beginning in June 2020, multiple markets, including Lightovation, will take place simultaneously as a Total Lifestyle Market across all product categories to better serve the changing needs of retail. This annual, summer-only trade event will unify for the first time all major markets and create the largest lifestyle market event in North America.
“Our mission is to help lighting showrooms succeed in a retail environment that is more competitive than ever,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “That’s why we set Lightovation dates well in advance to provide the most convenient and inspiring experience possible.”
