DMC and ART to Host Look & Learn Student Day Jan. 17

DALLAS-Dallas Market Center and Accessories Resource Team will hold their third annual Look & Learn Student Day tomorrow, Jan. 17, 2013, during the Total Home & Gift Market, Jan. 16-22.

Look & Learn Student Day offers more than 70 students from area colleges, including the University of North Texas and Wade College, the opportunity to get a first-hand look at the wholesale business and learn what opportunities are available after graduation, such as internships and careers. It has grown 50 percent since its inception three years ago.

The agenda features a tour of such showrooms as Classic Home, Currey & Company, Dallas Design Supply, Global Views and Taylors on Ten, as well as discussions led by several industry experts and a walk-through of Design FINDS and Luxury Home FINDS.

In addition, the students are encouraged to post photos of products, displays, layouts, designs or any other item that inspires them to Twitter with the #DMCstudentday hashtag or to DMC's Facebook. A Pinterest board will be created with the photos submitted by students.
