2021 Atlanta Summer Market Provides Expanded Resources
Registration is now open for the Summer 2021 Atlanta Market (showrooms July 13-19, 2021; temporaries July 14-18) which marks a major advancement in its post-pandemic rebound with its most expansive product offerings since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis.
“The optimism of the first half of 2021 is amplified for the summer market,” said Bob Maricich, International Market Centers (IMC) CEO. “Buyers and sellers are preparing for a strong market as industry recovery continues and business approaches pre-pandemic levels.”
Atlanta Market expects significant expansion in showroom and temporary resources for the July buying event.
“We are on a strong growth path,” explains Scott Eckman Chief Revenue Officer for IMC. “Early commitments for new leases and expansions, and healthy trade show sales signal the return of the unmatched depth and breadth of lifestyle product that is a hallmark of the Atlanta Market experience.”
Of note for summer 2021 is the reopening of trade show destinations to accommodate resource growth, with nearly 800 lines presented in socially distant temporary booth configurations on nine floors across the three-building AmericasMart campus. Highlights include a wide selection of artisanal gift products returning to Building 3, Floor 2 after a Winter 2021 relocation, plus the new The Gallery Collection, a curated presentation by members of the Museum Store Association that is open to all market buyers.
Updates also are found throughout Buildings 1 and 2 as IMC continues the Atlanta NEXT reorganization of the market’s 1,000+ gift and home decor showroom offerings. Anchoring the continued progress on the Building 1, Floor 1 lobby is the opening of a new ground-floor showroom for design-driven lighting brand Currey & Co. A full list of updates is to be announced.
AmericasMart features 300+ home décor showrooms presenting lighting, accent furniture, rugs, wall décor, casual furniture and linens on 12 floors in Building 1. Some 700+ gift and lifestyle showrooms are located on 19 floors between Buildings 1, 2 and 3 showcasing gift and specialty categories including children’s, gourmet foods and housewares, garden and outdoor living, lifestyle, tabletop, seasonal and more.
