Atlanta Market Temporaries will be across the three buildings at Americasmart.

Growing comfort in attending in-person buying and selling events plus investment from key industry organizations working to get their members back to business is driving expansion of the Atlanta Market temporary collection with nearly 1,000 lines anticipated for the Summer 2021 Market, July 14-18, at AmericasMart® Atlanta.

“Gift and décor brands are ready to exhibit at in-person markets and are choosing Atlanta Market to reconnect with their customers," said Scott Eckman, International Market Centers (IMC) Chief Revenue Officer. "This summer in Atlanta, buyers will have even more opportunities to discover new products and vendors."


Atlanta Temporary Reorganization Continues

Strategic updates to Atlanta Market’s temporary collection continue this summer in anticipation of post-pandemic growth across the marketplace. Four categories – Body & Soul, Body & Soul LUXE, Children's World and Modern Child – relocate to Building 3, Floor 3 to allow for expansion in those popular categories as well as expansion of General Gift and On Trend Gift in Building 3, Floor 5. Following a successful reorganization of Atlanta Market's temporary trade show for the Winter 2021 market, all other temporary categories will remain in their new locations for summer market – including Cash & Carry Jewelry (Building 2, Floor 4) and ANTIQUES (Building 3, Floor 1).

“The realignment of the Atlanta Market temporaries has created a more cohesive buying experience that will only get better as resources grow,” noted Eckman. “We are forecasting a robust market for Summer 2021, with leasing activity already surpassing expectations more than two months prior to the show.”

Trade Organizations Get Back to Business in Atlanta

The Summer 2021 temporaries also include the new and returning participation of vendors from three industry organizations. The Accessories Council will make its Atlanta debut in a pavilion of 15 global fashion-accessory brands within the Boutique category located in Building 3, Floor 4. Virginia's Finest is returning to the show with a pavilion of five vendors, showcasing top-quality, made-in-Virginia products sponsored by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services in the Gourmet Foods category in Building 3, Floor 3.

As previously announced, The Museum Store Association (MSA) will return and be featured in the new Gallery Collection located in Building 3, Floor 2 with 20+ exhibitors. “The Accessories Council is excited to see the return of in-person shows. We are very excited to see our colleagues and their products in person,” said Karen Giberson, president. “We have always been big fans of Atlanta Market and know that many of our members have had great success at its shows. IMC offers a wonderful platform and has worked very hard to provide a safe environment for in-person shopping.”
