AmericasMart was founded by John C. Portman Jr. in 1957, and helped promote the revitalization of the downtown Atlanta area. John Portman’s son, Jeffery Portman, was named Chairman and CEO of AMC and AmericasMart in January of 2018.
In May 2018, AmericasMart and International Market Centers merged, creating the world’s largest permanent mart operator for furniture, home decor, rug, gift and apparel. The individual markets and their respective venues will continue to operate under existing names and branding.
