OneCoast To Create Flagship Showroom at Dallas Market Center on First Floor of World Trade Center
—new atrium location debuting in January 2024 to be largest U.S. presence
for its Midwest and West retailer customers—
DALLAS – March 6, 2023 – OneCoast, an omnichannel wholesale sales and marketing company, and Dallas Market Center, the leading B2B lifestyle marketplace in North America, together announce a new flagship showroom for OneCoast. The expansive space on the atrium of the World Trade Center will open in time for the January 2024 Total Home & Gift Market.
The move follows a series of investments by OneCoast in Dallas Market Center and their decision to exit its Las Vegas Showroom location. The expanded location will provide an enhanced shopping experience for its existing customers while expanding its reach to the Western region retailers. This move also comes at a time of Dallas Market Center’s launch of a new vision to enhance the atrium experience and the overall shopping environment for retailers.
“I am truly excited about the vision of Dallas Market Center and our initiative together to create an environment that exceeds our retailers’ expectations” said John Keiser, CEO of OneCoast. “With our long-term partnership with Dallas Market Center, we will continue to build on this experience for years to come.”
“OneCoast is a forward-thinking company, and we have a special partnership built upon long-standing shared values and mutual support for the independent retailer,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “We are pleased that a destination like OneCoast will have an atrium presence to welcome and inspire buyers year-round.”
In order to accommodate the new OneCoast showroom, the existing Gourmet Market exhibitors will transition into a larger, new neighborhood of gourmet and housewares resources participating in The Temps at Total Home & Gift Market beginning in January 2024.
The Dallas marketplace is celebrated as an open-daily lifestyle market, presenting retailers with a complete assortment of products across multiple categories including gift, home, lighting, holiday, gourmet, and fashion. That single location efficiency was emphasized over the last two years as daily traffic and attendance at trade events throughout the year set records for buyer attendance and participating brands.
