DMC: Trade Plaza Continues to Expand

DALLAS -The International Trade Plaza at Dallas Market Center is now home to new and long-term lease exhibitors due to the strong Market showings in 2011 and early in 2012, DMC said. The showrooms join the Outdoor Living shared showroom, Dallas Design Supply, and the many other permanent floral and holiday decor showrooms housed in the 440,000-square-foot building.

"Showrooms located in The Plaza are an ideal, open-daily resource for interior designers and buyers; the growth in the building only adds to its extensive product offerings," said Cindy Morris, COO, Dallas Market Center. "Outdoor Living far exceeded its annual goals for 2011 and Dallas Design Supply has gained an incredible following of loyal buyers in less than a year since its grand opening."

Outdoor Living saw multi-million dollar sales during Markets; approximately $1 million in revenue during non-Market time; and daily, non-Market traffic of more than 5,000 buyers in 2011, according to DMC.

New showrooms joining The Plaza are Karen Didion Originals (The Plaza 2-2F433) and Roofian (The Plaza 2-2F417). Artist Karen Didion specializes in "capturing your memories" with design focused on the holiday seasons and Roofian manufacturers gift and floral baskets.

Recently, PMJC (1-1F444), Pacific Sunshine (1-1F116) and Majestic Handicrafts (1-1F122) signed long-term leases in The Plaza. Also, TJ Collection will relocate from the World Trade Center to The Plaza 1-1F117 in June.
