Dallas Market Center opposes Texas 'Bathroom Bill'
August 8, 2017,
Dallas Market Center has joined a number of companies in opposition to Texas state legislation currently under consideration that would target individual access to restrooms.
The so-called “bathroom bills” currently being debated in special session would have a negative effect upon business in the state, would deteriorate the state’s reputation for being welcoming to all, and run counter to Dallas Market Center’s company values of inclusion and diversity, the DMC said in a statement.
Dallas Market Center is one of the largest business-to-business marketplaces in the world and is a magnet for business travel, welcoming more than 200,000 industry professionals to its campus each year from all 50 states and more than 80 countries. These customers conduct commerce within the more than 1,800 permanent showrooms at Dallas Market Center and participate in the nine major trade events taking place each year. Its total economic impact on the City of Dallas, according to the latest independent study, approaches $1 billion each year.
