Dallas Market Center Announces Dates for 2023 Apparel & Accessories Markets; New June 2023 Dates Adjacent to Total Home & Gift Market
DALLAS – July 28, 2022 – Dallas Market Center, the fastest growing marketplace in the U.S. for apparel and accessories brands, has announced dates for its 2023 Apparel & Accessories Markets.
The 2023 dates include a new location on the tradeshow calendar for the June edition of Apparel & Accessories Market, which will take place June 27-30, adjacent to the Total Home & Gift Market, June 21-27.
The June show move was prompted by buyer feedback and requests to access the best selection of products at an efficient schedule of trade events at Dallas Market Center. The schedule of June events now creates a series of shows over ten days, beginning with Total Home & Gift Market and KidsWorld, followed directly by Apparel & Accessories Market.
For apparel and accessories buyers and exhibitors, the move will mean access to activity and resources during the adjacent Total Home & Gift Market and KidsWorld. For other lifestyle exhibitors and buyers such as gift, gourmet and holiday, the new dates will ensure access to activity and resources at the Apparel & Accessories Market.
The market center has also announced a partnership with the business platform, community, and trade event company Brand Assembly to create a pop-up marketplace during the June 2023 Apparel & Accessories Market. Brand Assembly will curate a selection of fashion and lifestyle brands on the 10th floor of the World Trade Center.
“These advantageous market dates help add to the Dallas momentum and energy, powered by the best brands and buyers,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “We also look forward to the addition of Brand Assembly, which delivers thoughtful, stylish products to help retailers stand out. We are extremely grateful for the customer support which will carry us in to 2023 with confidence.”
Added Hillary France, CEO and co-founder of Brand Assembly: “We look forward to creating a compelling brand experience in Dallas that will appeal to buyers seeking fresh and unique products.
