FASTEST GROWING WESTERN SHOW IN THE COUNTRY AT DALLAS MARKET CENTER
Dallas Market Center, the world’s most complete wholesale marketplace, recently announced that the Dallas Apparel & Accessories Market featuring Western apparel (March 25-28), experienced record growth. In fact, the Western segment has shown significant growth in multiple areas over the past year, making it the fastest growing Western show in the country. With a wide range of well-known exhibitors and high-energy special events, Dallas provided Western retailers with an unparalleled buying experience.
“Western just keeps growing and doesn’t seem to be slowing down,” said Cindy Morris, COO, Dallas Market Center. “The March show was full of great product, lots of excitement and had an energy that couldn’t be missed.”
Longtime favorites in the Western apparel industry returned to Dallas, along with many new exhibitors providing buyers with more new resources. Gypsy Soule, designer and manufacturer of jeweled cowhide flip-flops, boots, t-shirts and jewelry, won the Best in Show Award for the most creative booth design.
Daily activities included prize drawings during Market for various items donated by the Western exhibitors. In the evenings, buyers and exhibitors were entertained with live performances by Nashville’s Jake Maurer Band at the Boots & Brews parties held Friday and Saturday night. Beer and light bites were served, making the event a favorite among retailers and exhibitors alike.
