AmericasMart Atlanta to Spark 2011 Wholesale Buying Season
The market that for more than half a century has powered the home, rug, gift and apparel wholesale industry is poised to set 2011 buying and selling in motion Jan. 12-19 with the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market and the Atlanta International Area Rug Market featuring the National Oriental Rug Show (NORS).
Show officials said that timed as the year’s first international market and home to the world’s largest single product collection, AmericasMart will create the global stage on which manufacturers, designers and sales representatives will unveil new lines, launch new designs and introduce new categories.
Highlighting the Market is AmericasMart’s own set of launches and debuts. January introduces four new Market Temporary categories, bringing the total to 31 unique collections. The Temporaries continue to serve as a launching pad for up-and-coming designers and manufacturers as well as an incubator for the permanent product centers – which also have momentum building in the run to January.
The 13 permanent product centers spanning the four-building campus will welcome new companies opening their first Atlanta showrooms and will house newly expanded showrooms as they enhance and strengthen their product offerings.
The Market experience will be enriched and enlivened by premier events, celebrity appearances and educational programming.
