AmericasMart Becomes New Home For Luxury as Atlanta International Fine Linen & Home Textiles Market Debuts in March 2007

Atlanta – For March 2007, the Atlanta Spring Gift, Home Furnishings & Holiday Market took on a compelling new look and feel with five distinctive product collections which were presented in tandem with the Atlanta International Fine Linen & Home Textiles MarketSM launch.

Taking center stage as Market’s new feature collection was holiday and floral, presented in the Holiday, Floral & Home Decor Center (AmericasMart , floors 16—20) and the Market Temporaries’ Holiday, Floral & Baskets collection (AmericasMart , floor 7). As home to the nation’s first and largest integrated product center featuring floral and seasonal product, and after years of unprecedented category leadership, holiday and floral is now positioned to serve the evolving needs of seasonal and floral specialty retailing.

Adding to the strength of the permanent collections were expanded product collections in the Temporaries with these featured categories: Home Accents, Home Furnishings & Garden; General Gifts; Jewelry & Fashion Accessories; and Cash & Carry Jewelry—all providing strong synergy with the holiday/floral collections.

Also driving spring 2007 momentum was the debut of the Atlanta International Fine Linen & Home Textiles MarketSM, newly staged as the nation’s new home for luxury. Its March 10th premiere—held concurrently with the Atlanta Spring Gift, Home Furnishings & Holiday Market—brought the nation’s largest single collection of premium linens and home textiles to the 10th floor Exhibit Hall of AmericasMart . The new temporary collection—together with permanent showrooms on floors nine and 10 of the Home Accents & Fine Linens Center—gave buyers access to almost 7,000 square feet of temporary product and more than 100 permanent showrooms showcasing a comprehensive selection of soft goods, home textiles and furnishings, personal care products and accessories.

Additionally, Visual Display Awards were given to Springs Performance of Savannah, Georgia, and Dandy Design, Inc. of Albuquerque, NM, in appreciation for and celebration of their commitment to outstanding visual display.
