DALLAS–The deadline to enter Dallas Market Center’s “The Next Big Thing” competition is next Monday, April 2. First announced in January, this year’s national product search contest is looking to award a great gadget, gift or home item from one up-and-comer — whether that’s an individual or company — with a prize package that is worth more than $12,500.
Three finalists will first be chosen to show their products in front of more than 50,000 attendees during the FINDS Dallas Temp Show, June 21-24, which is during the Total Home & Gift Market. The winner will then be announced on Saturday, June 23, and receive the prize package, which includes a $2,500 cash prize, exhibit space at the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market in January 2013, a profile in one of Dallas Market Center’s custom publications and consultations from leading industry experts regarding branding, public relations, visual merchandising and more.
