The Accessories Resource Team (ART) is accepting nominations for the 21st annual ARTS awards, to be presented during the January 2010 Dallas Market.
The program, sponsored in partnership with the Dallas Market Center, honors outstanding achievement in retailing, manufacturing, sales representation and product design.
Lighting will once again be represented in manufacturing categories for Lighting Fixtures and Portable Lamps. Additionally, there are Retail Lighting Showroom categories for each of three regions. Product design and sales representative awards are other opportunities to recognize lighting industry personnel, and the Rising Star award honors a retailer or manufacturer in business for fewer than three years.
Nominations are also being accepted for this year’s Academy of Achievement recipient, an individual who has made a significant contribution and/or impact on the decorative accessories industry.
ART has gone “green” this year, accepting ballots online only at www.accessoriesresourceteam.org. Nominations will be accepted through July 3, 2009, with finalists announced in August.
