In addition, the three finalists from “The Next Big Thing” product search contest will exhibit in the FINDS area. These finalists will be chosen by a panel of judges from trade and consumer publications as well as Dallas Market Center representatives for their unique, innovative product design and concept. They will receive complimentary airfare, hotel accommodations and a 10x10 booth to show their product.

The winner, selected during the show based on product design, innovation and trade space presentation, will be announced on Saturday, January 17, 2009.
