— Recognition for new product introductions at June Lightovation now kicking off ahead of the June 21-24 show —
Dallas Market Center has opened voting for the fourth annual Market Choice Awards, which honor new lighting and ceiling fan products that will be introduced at the June 21-24 edition of Lightovation – Dallas International Lighting Show. This is the first time that voting will be possible in advance of the event as well as on-site through noon CDT on Thursday, June 22.
Voting in the Market Choice Awards, which are sponsored by enLIGHTenment and Lighting & Decor magazines, is available at www.dallasmarketcenter.com/mca and on the Lightovation app, downloadable from the App Store and Google Play. Through the mobile-friendly voting platform, participants can choose one product in each of six categories: Bath, Ceiling Fans, Chandeliers & Pendants, Outdoor, Portable Lamps and a new-for-2017 Technology category.
Lightovation attendees will also be able to pick up a copy of a new commemorative guide to 2017 Market Choice entries, a helpful overview of new product highlights that will also aid in making selections for the awards. At market, exhibitors with products eligible for the 2017 Market Choice Awards will be identified with window clings, tent cards and hang tags on product finalists. A total of 52 exhibitors have 97 product entries in this year’s awards program.
During Lightovation, Market Choice voting kiosks will be stationed near the north escalators on the third and fourth floors of the Dallas Trade Mart building, although anyone can access the www.dallasmarketcenter.com/mca page or download the Lightovation app to enable convenient voting anywhere.
“The breadth of product introductions in June continues to make Lightovation unique in the residential lighting and ceiling fan marketplace,” Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center, said. “It is our privilege to showcase and honor these leading companies via the Market Choice Awards each year.”
Last year’s Market Choice winners were Hinkley’s Verve bath lighting, Emerson’s Kailua Cove fan, Savoy House’s Fulton chandelier, Quoizel’s Livingston outdoor lantern, Holtkoetter’s Glanz lamp and Hinkley’s Nuvi landscape lighting.
Registration for the June 21-24 edition of Lightovation is open, and exclusive hotel and airfare rates can be booked through Market Travel. You’ll find additional information about the show on the free Lightovation app and on the Lightovation page of the Dallas Market Center website.
