ART announces Dallas Market ART Card participants, events
Cecile Corral -- Home Accents Today, January 16, 2013
Accessories Resource Team, the creative home furnishings network, announced that 17 vendors are participating in the organization's ART Card program at the January Dallas market, taking place this week.
The program, exclusive to ART members, provides each retailer member with a personalized ART Card that can be presented to participating vendors for exclusive specials, upon placing an order. Savings realized by the retail member at just one market often exceed the cost of ART's yearly membership dues.
The retail annual membership to ART and participation in the discount program is $250 per year, and is open to home furnishings retailers and interior design studios. A complete list of the vendor specials is listed below and on ART's website.
During the Dallas Market, ART will co-host several events:
• Thurs., Jan. 17, 9:00 a.m. Look and Learn Student Day. More than 50 students from UNT School of Merchandising and Hospitality and Wade College Merchandising Department will tour ART member showrooms and hear a panel of professionals speak about the home accents industry.
• Thurs., Jan. 17, 3:00 p.m. - Idea Share, co-hosted by Residential Lighting. Lighting showrooms are invited to share their challenges and bright ideas with their peers. WTC 166
• Fri., Jan. 18, 6:00 p.m. - 24th Annual ARTS Awards Exhibit and Cocktail Party. The product submitted for judging by the vendor finalists will be on display. Awards finalists, ART members and guests are invited. WTC 631
• Sat., Jan. 19 6:30 p.m. - 24th ARTS Awards Gala. Reservations can be made on line at the ART website through January 15. Hilton Anatole
