AmericasMart will expand its specialty categories across the temporary collection at the upcoming Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market, said International Market Centers (IMC). The temporaries are scheduled to be open Wednesday, January 15 to Saturday, January 18, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, January 19, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
According to IMC, AmericasMart will add 400 new exhibitors in its stationery and paper resources as well as in the On Trend Gifts, Gourmet Foods and Boutique categories. . In total, the market will present 3,300 temporary gift and home exhibitors in 31 distinct product neighborhoods including a redesigned Seasonal/Gift collection.
“Retailers will find exciting, trend-driven products that will make their merchandise standout in the Atlanta market’s temporary collections,” said Jo Ann Miller Marshall, IMC executive vp, president of Trade Shows. “Our careful curation of product categories makes it easier for retailers to find the unique brands and products they need for success.”
Three specific neighborhoods also are posting significant growth. On Trend Gifts, an internationally influenced juried collection of design-driven, contemporary gift items, doubles to 90 booths, while the growth in the Gourmet Foods collection is driven by an expanded Georgia Grown Pavilion, which features more than 30 booths showcasing products made and harvested across the state of Georgia including Backyard Safari (Covington), Braswell Food Co.(Statesboro), Southern Pawz Pets (Davisboro) and Southern Straws Cheese Straws (Columbus).
Following its recent rebrand, the Seasonal / Gift collection features a new look and feel that better showcases its seasonal décor and faux botanicals. In addition, buyers are able to discover new trend-driven products in an expanded and redesigned New Exhibitor vignette on Building 2, Floor 2. The vignette features best sellers, new introductions and signature items from exhibitors making their Atlanta market debut in January 2020.
