A strong market relies on a good exhibitor mix. We take pride in bringing unique
products from a variety of backgrounds, talented and creative individuals, and
innovative businesses that range from the cutting edge of trends to deep knowledge
in their collectible field.
Formed by market management professionals with expertise in the fields of arts,
crafts, collectibles and antiques, DMM specializes in attracting a diverse exhibitor
base for outdoor markets and special events.
We possess a diverse range of skills including:
- • Special event planning and programming
- • Public space management
- • Vendor recruitment and management
- • Security services
- • Arts facility development and programming
The firm's principals have worked frequently and successfully with government agencies,
community organizations and representatives, and especially individual exhibitors, vendors,
food vendors, merchants and other small businesses that make public markets possible.
Because our principals have been, and continue to be, longtime exhibitors and participants
in markets themselves, we have the first-hand knowledge, empathy, understanding, and
perspective required to work with the stakeholders of a market to make it successful.
Our company's exhibitor database and strong vendor relations enable us to offer
high-quality services to our clients. The firm's principals have worked with a diverse
and extensive number of exhibitors for more than twenty years, developing a significant
knowledge and client base. We have consistently developed our reputation for delivering
quality services to our participating exhibitors.
Our firm and our team members are affiliated with several prominent local and national
organizations that underscore our involvement in issues relevant to the operations of markets.
