Dallas Men’s Show welcomes buyers from coast to coast
The Dallas Men’s Show, held Jan. 29-31, featured more than 700 brands and welcomed hundreds of buyers from across the country.
The trade event, triple the size of previous winter editions, attracted buyers from 35 states. Attendance was up significantly versus pre-pandemic shows, including an expanding number of buyers from the southeast and upper midwest in addition to loyal and new buyers from Texas and surrounding states.
“We have built a Men’s Show for a national audience that’s bigger than ever and serves so many buyers discovering Dallas,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO. “We’re thankful to the brands for supporting an event for top men’s retailers seeking one location to find everything they need.”
The Dallas Men’s Show took place across multiple floors of the World Trade Center and featured expanded categories including accessories, gifts, outdoor, contemporary, luxury, tailored suiting, athleisure, and sportswear. The show growth was called out by Rosemarie Grieco, managing partner with Scott Barber: “Expanding to the 12th floor changed the entire landscape of the show. And working with the DMC team is fantastic.”
Among the buyers was Harry Mayer of Harry Mayer Clothiers in Meridian, Mississippi , who stated: “It’s hard to believe there are hundreds of exhibitors and growing each season. The energy and networking we gain is invaluable. Dallas is such an awesome and inviting city, making this by far our favorite and most efficient buying trip.”
The next Dallas Men’s Show takes place July 30-Aug. 1. Other upcoming Dallas Market Center events include the Apparel & Accessories Market and Total Home & Gift Market, March 22-25; and KidsWorld, March 22-25.
