Dallas Market Center announced that January’s edition of Lightovation, its twice annual residential lighting trade event, is moving from Jan. 7-10 to March 23-26.
The summer edition of Lightovation will take place in its original June 23-26 spot. Additionally, the January 6-12 Total Home & Gift Market and other previously scheduled January trade events at Dallas Market Center will continue.
The March edition of Lightovation will take place together with the spring edition of Total Home & Gift Market to allow for full exploration of DMC’s campus and buying opportunities in home décor and other categories.
