Once you’ve booked your booth space, take some time to map out your marketing strategy for the show. Preparing now will save you time and give you an edge before, during & after market.  Here is a list of great tools to take advantage of:
Directory Listing (FREE)
Whether it’s the printed version, website or Dallas Market App, buyers depend on this important tool. From pre-planning market to a reference after the show, the listing is valuable. Reference your FINDS exhibitor packet.

Promotional Postcards (FREE)
Don’t have your own branded postcards or mailer? Get 300 complimentary DMC-branded postcards to send to your current and prospective customers. These cards have an area to fill in your company info and booth location at the show. Request yours by contacting Renee Becerra at rbecerra@mcmcmail.com or 214-655-6188. 

Social Media Blitz (FREE)
Use the popularity of social media to impact your presence! Use our Facebook page with more than 9,100 “Likes” or our Twitter page to promote your product before and during the show. Also, follow Dallas Market on Pinterest!
Press Kit (FREE)
Buyers and sellers aren’t the only people coming together at market. The press will be here in full force looking for new and interesting products to feature in blogs, publications, videos and more. Prepare a press kit and bring copies (approximately 20) to the Press Room (World Trade Center, Suite 176) at the show.
Showtimer (FREE)
Everyone loves an event or a special offer and our buyers are no exception! Promote your show specials, demonstrations, treats, and more in our Showtimer guide.

Handouts (FREE)
You can provide handouts to buyers in your booth, but also consider the “Free Zone” on campus. This area is the only designated promotion point at the show for handouts and flyers. Recruit some friends and family to help you drive interest. The “Free Zone” is located between Market Hall and the Trade Mart west entrance.

Buyer Lists
We provide buyer lists by store type for a small fee. Use these to call and book appointments for the show or send mailers with your company information and any show specials you will offer during the show.
Many more opportunities are available and can be found here and here!

If you haven’t reserved your booth -- do so today!
