Dallas Market Center features hundreds of western lifestyle brands serving retail buyers from across the U.S. and internationally. In fact, no other marketplace in the world attracts more buyers seeking western and western-inspired products, including retailers broadening their merchandise mix.
WESA’s decision to move the International Western/English Apparel & Equipment Markets to Dallas beginning in 2021 was based upon a number of factors including Dallas’ superior entertainment and travel value. Throughout Dallas Market Center’s six decades of service to buyers and sellers the company has worked hard to ensure the availability of nearby accommodations, restaurants, entertainment, and support services that are plentiful, convenient, and affordable. To that end, according to Business Travel News, Dallas offers lower total business travel costs than most U.S. tradeshow destinations including Denver, Atlanta, and Las Vegas. Centrally located within a short travel time from any location in the U.S. and Latin America, Dallas Market Center has more than 5,000 hotel rooms available within one mile including numerous budget options as well as hundreds of restaurants.
