Dallas Market Center Launches Lighting Concierge

—Open-daily service connects interior designers to brands inside the largest lighting marketplace in North America—

DALLAS – September 12, 2022 – Dallas Market Center, the largest open-daily design marketplace in the country and the largest lighting marketplace in North America, announces the launch of a new service for the design community: the Lighting Concierge.

The Lighting Concierge is an exclusive and complementary service to assist interior designers with lighting for their projects. The Concierge offers project planning assistance, a sneak peek at new products, access to lighting showrooms year-round, and insider access to buy lighting directly. The Lighting Concierge is now available during business hours and is located in dedicated space adjacent to registration on the first floor of the Trade Mart.

Arturo Maluy, a 20-year veteran of the lighting industry, is serving as the Lighting Concierge. His knowledge extends from lighting fixtures and fans to lighting control systems and even light bulbs. He brings to each customer an understanding of how to integrate lighting successfully into design projects and how to source the right lighting.

The growing list of showrooms on the 3rd and 4th floor of the Trade Mart participating in the Lighting Concierge includes Savoy House, Progress Lighting, Elk Home, Crystorama, Varaluz, Hinkley, Quoizel, DALS Lighting, and Maxim Group Companies which includes Maxim Lighting, ET2 Contemporary Lighting, and Studio M.

“We’re proud to be the first marketplace to offer this helpful service available to all designers every day of the week,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “Lighting is a stylish but often complex decision. Our lighting exhibitors recognized this and are eager to help. That’s why we are launching a service that will enable our Lighting Concierge to be the lighting expert on a designer’s team.”

Designers are invited to make an appointment today or to stop by and meet Arturo to discuss lighting and design projects while enjoying complimentary coffee or champagne. More information is available at dallasmarketcenter.com/lighting/concierge
