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. It was also the destination of the President John F. Kennedy motorcade in 1963 where he was scheduled to give a speech to 2,600 people at a sold-out luncheon. In 1964, Elizabeth Erink of England created the bronze sculpture “The Eagle” in honor of the president. It sits outside the main Trade Mart entrance today. The building was expanded in 1976 and 2007 and now has approximately one million square feet of space. Dallas Market Center management and marketing offices are located on the fifth floor of this building.
