Dallas Market Center has reported a double-digit attendance increase and record number of new brands at the Dallas Men’s Show, which was held July 28 – 30. The appointment-driven trade event saw a 16 percent boost in buyer attendance over 2017, representing better menswear retailers from the Central U.S. and beyond. Driving this momentum are new and legacy exhibitors, expanded temporary exhibitors, and valuable amenities.
“We are extremely pleased with the recent growth of the Dallas Men’s Show,” said Cindy Morris, Dallas Market Center President and CEO. “We continue to invest in the Show, and as a result we are welcoming more attendees and an expanded number of leading brands.”
New 2018 Dallas Men’s Show exhibitors included: 7 Diamonds, Duck Head, Flag & Anthem, Grayers, Greg Norman Collection, Mac Apparel, Patrick Assaraf, and more.
These new brands joined legacy and returning exhibitors to the show, including Barbour, Lacoste, Johnston & Murphy, Southern Marsh, Tommy Bahama, Faherty, Coppley, Samuelsohn Clothing Company, and dozens of others.
In addition to a record number of new companies, the show also included special amenities including complimentary daily breakfast and lunch and a buyers’ lounge for meetings and relaxation. In addition, the opening day concluded with a can’t-miss Havana Nights Party in the World Trade Center’s D15TRICT Lounge, known for its panoramic view of downtown Dallas. Guests enjoyed networking, music, food, and custom cocktails, and were also gifted with DMC-branded cigars handmade during the party.
The next Dallas Men’s Show takes place January 26-28, 2019.
