Dallas Market Center has announced that more than a dozen companies have deepened their commitment to Lightovation via long-term lease renewals in addition to new exhibitors for permanent showrooms and the Spectrum shared showroom for the January 8-12, 2020 Lightovation show. These companies join previously announced agreements now totaling nearly 60 companies, which together represent the largest collection of lease agreements since the expansion of the Trade Mart in 2007.
“These lighting companies are our partners, and together we continue to serve a loyal community of retailers inside the most dominant marketplace for lighting business inspiration and commerce,” says Cindy Morris, President and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “We appreciate the tremendous value they bring to the marketplace, and these new agreements will help retailers succeed by ensuring that more new products, technology and business insights are presented in Dallas. We are actively invested in the success of our exhibitor partners through global trade events, unmatched daily business, and partnerships with organizations such as the American Lighting Association and Lighting One.”
