“We're proud to partner with the Dallas Market Center for the third edition of this program,” says Laura Van Zeyl, Publisher/Editorial Director of Residential Lighting. “2012 is already shaping up to be a positive year for our industry, and the loyal staffs of leading showrooms deserve formal recognition of their hard work that has brought us to this point and will continue to move us forward.”

Ten finalists in each of the three dollar-volume categories will be featured in the May issue of Residential Lighting, and the winners will be announced at an opening night reception during the June 2012 Dallas Intl. Lighting Market .
Showrooms are welcome to nominate themselves or be nominated by others. Forms for entering and nominating can be found on the Showroom of the Year  page of the Residential Lighting website. Previous winners and finalists are eligible to enter again. All entries are due March 5, 2012.
