The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market will be held Jan. 14-21, 2020 at AmericasMart Atlanta.
“IMC is releasing a comprehensive slate of future dates for The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market and Las Vegas Market to make planning easier for our customers and related industry associations who host events concurrently with our markets,” said Dorothy Belshaw, Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing and Digital Officer for International Market Centers. “These dates reflect a consistent late-January date pattern for Las Vegas Market, as well as the new mid-January timing for Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market which was adopted in September 2018 in response to buyer and supplier preferences for dates farther from New Year’s which would allow them to better plan and prepare for new product introduction and inventory replenishment.”
The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market is a leading wholesale marketplace housing the nation’s largest gift product mix complemented by a broad selection of home décor, featuring more than 9,000 brands across all categories. Held semi-annually at AmericasMart Atlanta, the Market attracts retailers and designers from every U.S. state and more than 60 countries.
Located in downtown Atlanta, AmericasMart spans more than seven million square feet and houses the world’s single largest collection of wholesale home, gift, area rug and apparel merchandise. It boasts more than 1,400 permanent showrooms and almost 3,000 temporary exhibiting companies.
The International Gift and Home Furnishings Market takes place twice a year here in January and July for buyers from small, medium and large retailers, designers, rug retailers, event planners, buying groups, bloggers and media. Badges are free, but trade credentials are required.
This leader in wholesale centers welcomes international attendees from 80 countries, buyers from the majority of the Top 100 retailers in the U.S. and a record-breaking number of new buyers. The top 10 countries represented are Australia, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada, China, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Japan, Mexico and the United Kingdom.
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.
