October 31st, 2014The Grommet Wholesale Makes its Dallas Debut This January
The Grommet, an influential platform for launching new and innovative products, will debut in Dallas for the very first time at the Dallas Temp Show, January 15-18 during Total Home & Gift Market, January 14-20, 2015.
The company’s mission is to launch undiscovered products and help them succeed. These undiscovered products are called “Grommets” – products with a purpose invented by people with stories. The Grommet has launched more than 2,000 companies since 2008, and many have gone on to become household names. In the summer of 2014, The Grommet launched a new wholesale platform to connect independent makers with Main Street retailers, supporting both and ensuring long-term success.
The Grommet Wholesale will be located in Lifestyle Temps (World Trade Center 12th floor), bringing 40 new-to-market products including unique gifts, innovative gadgets, items made in the USA or handcrafted locally, as well as products that are ecofriendly or crowd funded.
“We are proud to host The Grommet Wholesale in Dallas this January to help connect makers and retailers,” said Cindy Morris, COO, Dallas Market Center. “With the addition of The Grommet, our buyers can find even more one-of-a-kind items to increase their merchandise mix and sales. We are committed to providing unique product and look forward to welcoming them in Dallas.”
“The Maker Movement is a trend that is responsible for an explosion of new products entering the market. This is the trend that is fueling our business, and products are being born today that never would have been possible before,” said Co-founder and Chief Discovery Officer for The Grommet, Joanne Domeniconi. “We are very excited to debut these new products and exhibit for the first time ever at Dallas Market this January.”
The Dallas Temp Show, Jan. 15-18 (staggered opening dates) offers 24 different product categories in six distinctive, easy-to-shop locations with more than 500,000 square feet of exhibits located on the WTC 6th, 12th and 13th floors, Trade Mart 1st floor, Market Hall and The Plaza 1st floor in Outdoor Living.
