Dallas lighting showroom concept targets interior designers
March 3, 2016,
Dallas Market Center will unveil a new lighting showroom concept in June to serve the interior design community. Light + Design will be a 25,000-sq.-ft. open-daily destination featuring a curated collection of luxury lighting manufacturers in custom spaces.
More than 70% of available space in Light + Design, located on the 10th floor of the World Trade Center, has already been reserved by top manufacturers including Hinkley Lighting, John-Richard, Kuzco, Holtkoetter and others.
“We are among the original lighting tenants of Dallas Market Center and are pleased to have a new venue to access this important target market on a daily basis,” said Rick Wiedemer, president of Hinkley Lighting. “We are fully committed to this unique opportunity.”
“Design is at the heart of our business, and we look forward to participating in this forward-thinking showcase of high-end lighting solutions aimed at the interior design community,” said Alan Galbraith, president of John-Richard.
Inside Light + Design, a professionally trained and qualified lighting sales manager will manage the space and will assist with product education, sales orders and sales leads via existing channels to sales representatives and manufacturers. The space includes the only private conference rooms and workrooms in Dallas Market Center for the design community as well as a 100-seat seminar room to be used for a full schedule of training sessions, CEUs for lighting specialists and specifiers, as well as workshops, networking events and product reviews throughout the year.
“Dallas Market Center is already an important destination for interior designers across the state of Texas and the surrounding areas,” said Marissa Marmolejos, president of the Texas Chapter of ASID. “I am looking forward to the grand opening of Light + Design. It will be an exciting addition for design professionals to source high-quality lighting throughout the year.”
