We do things big in Texas, and Dallas Market Center is no exception! Inside you will find the most innovative products from every category imaginable housed in our four buildings: World Trade Center, Trade Mart, International Trade Plaza and Market Hall. We have so much to offer you; it takes 100 acres to house it all.
Trade Mart is home to hundreds of showrooms featuring gifts, decorative accents, lighting, tabletop and stationery. Opened in 1959, its four floors surround an atrium called The Grand Pavilion at the Trade Mart, featuring the largest indoor marketplace pond complete with live fish and palm trees. Many special events are held here including the Dallas Fashion Awards gala, ARTS Awards gala and private parties.
Consumers flock to Market Hall for popular boat, bridal, car and home and garden shows. This is the only building on the campus opened to the public, hosting more than 60 consumer shows each year and housing temporary trade shows during market weeks. It opened in 1960 and contains 202,000 square feet. Want to know what shows are coming up? Take a look at the Market Hall calendar of events.
World Trade Center is the tallest building on the Dallas Market Center campus. Originally opened in 1974, it was expanded from 7 to 15 floors in 1979, totaling 3.1 million square feet. Nine of its floors house showrooms of gifts, decorative accents, lighting, furniture, rugs, textiles, fabric, jewelry, toys and design furnishings
Opened in January 1999, The Plaza is the rebirth of Dallas Market Center’s original building, the Home Furnishings Mart (opened in 1957). Connected to World Trade Center on two floors, the 440,000-square-foot, two-story building is the only U.S. marketplace dedicated to the permanent floral and holiday décor industries. Dallas Holiday & Home Expo® is hosted here twice a year.
