Atlanta Market to offer category debut and more in summer 2023
The summer 2023 edition of Atlanta Market is slated to offer expanded discovery opportunities, a new handmade category debut and fresh product from more than 6,000 lines, plus a full roster of education and celebrations, according to International Market Centers (IMC).
Registration is open for the July 11-17 Atlanta Market at AmericasMart Atlanta.
“New opportunities abound in Atlanta this summer,” said Bob Maricich, CEO of IMC. “Atlanta Market connects gift and home furnishings retailers and designers with a world of new product with three buildings brimming with new innovations, trends and inspiration across permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits. It is a buying environment not to be missed.”
Expanded product resources
Atlanta Market’s permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits grow in summer 2023. Highlights include the launch of a new high-end handmade temporary neighborhood, Modern Maker, new casual furniture resources presented at the co-located Casual Market Atlanta and new, expanded and relocated brands and sales agencies throughout the market’s permanent showrooms.
The addition of Modern Maker brings Atlanta Market’s temporary exhibit categories to 33 presenting more than 3,000 lines in 10 exhibit halls across AmericasMart’s three buildings. More updates in summer 2023 include the relocation of Cash & Carry jewelry alongside the Antiques collection in Building 3, Floor 1 to create an immediate delivery destination.
Atlanta Market’s expansive showroom collection is refreshed with nearly 20 showroom updates in summer 2023. In gift, 700 showrooms on 19 floors in Buildings 1, 2 and 3 offer new introductions in general gift, gourmet and housewares, tabletop, seasonal/holiday, outdoor living, children’s and more. Additionally, the home furnishings resources include new, expanded and relocated accent furniture, décor, lighting, outdoor living, rug, textile and wall art brands among 350-plus showrooms presented on 12 floors in Building 1.
The relocation of the Casual Market to Atlanta and overlap with Atlanta Market aims to offer new opportunities for buyers. Registered Atlanta Market buyers will have access to the 100 Casual Market Atlanta temporary exhibits July 10-13. More than 50 showrooms, located on four contiguous floors in Building 1, will remain open for the duration of Atlanta Market.
Atlanta Market offers five days of programming. The schedule includes five business-building seminars, three cooking demonstrations in the Atlanta Market Demonstration Kitchen, three marquee events on the Building 3 Atrium stage, and four tours highlighting the best of market, plus the Market Kickoff Party.
All-new photo ops in all three buildings and product displays aim to offer opportunities for social media content and merchandising inspiration.
