International Market Centers (IMC) and ADAC today announced a week-long celebration of design this September through their fall markets, Fall Design Week and DISCOVER ADAC. Between Sept. 23-26, these two sister properties invite designers and design enthusiasts alike to experience product selections coupled with presentations, book signings, panel discussions, and parties with top talent and industry leaders.
AmericasMart’s Fall Design Week will be held from Sept. 23-25. Fall Design Week is exclusively open to the trade, welcoming designers and buyers to spend the three-day event attending educational seminars and networking opportunities while sourcing from the market center’s open year-round resources and select additional showrooms.
With a short trip from Downtown to Buckhead, this year’s DISCOVER ADAC is set for Sept. 24-26 and invites members of the trade and the public to explore new sources of authentic design inspiration through renowned interior design keynote speakers, book signings, salon-style talks, product launches, cocktail sip and strolls, pop-up shops and more. The programming in each location will complement one another, with a focus on expanding education at AmericasMart and finding inspiration at ADAC.
“Together, AmericasMart and ADAC are the Southeast’s most comprehensive, dual-venue design resource,” said Bob Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers, parent company of AmericasMart and ADAC. “The collaboration of Fall Design Week and DISCOVER ADAC allows the design and retail communities to discover what makes each location unique and explore how they can use both resources to create exceptional design. The design centers’ complementary programming, events and product offerings make Atlanta a must-attend location this September.”
AmericasMart presents nearly 2,000 lighting, accent furniture, rugs, wall decor, casual furniture and linens brands presented in 300 showrooms complementing the nation’s largest gift product mix. ADAC consists of over 65 showrooms offering 1,200 of the industry’s finest product lines including furniture, fabric, rugs, lighting, accessories, floor and wall coverings, antiques, fine art and framing, kitchens, bath, tile and stone, and home theater products.
Interior designer Steve McKenzie will further enhance the collaboration between AmericasMart and ADAC with curated vignettes at each campus. McKenzie will utilize trending products from a variety of interior design showrooms at both locations to show how AmericasMart and ADAC represent a one-stop shopping destination. A free shuttle will be provided on Sept. 24-25 for easy transportation between both venues on days with concurrent programming.
