"ANDMORE captures our spirit of innovation and focus on doing MORE to support our customers by enhancing and extending the value of our physical markets for both buyers and sellers across the furniture, home décor, gift and apparel industries.”</p> <p>ANDMORE’s modern visual identity captures the creative and vibrant nature of the industries ANDMORE serves. In addition to the new name and branding, ANDMORE will introduce a host of innovative features and enhancements to its upcoming markets and digital offerings.</p> <p>The first product introduction under the ANDMORE name is a new buyer mobile app, which launches today in preparation for the summer markets in Atlanta and Las Vegas. The <strong>@Market</strong> app includes pre-market planning tools, a personal QR code for quick badge pick-up, the ability to capture and organize images with notes, turn-by-turn directions to help buyers make the most of their time at market, and a comprehensive, post-market recap for easy follow-up and ordering.</p> <p>“ANDMORE is MORE than a name or a brand.  It is both a promise and a challenge that gives us the space and flexibility to continue to and find new ways to provide exceptional value to our partners and customers,” said Maricich.</p> </div> Tue, 13 Jun 2023 18:33:39 +0000 gannunzio 7459 at https://www.furniturelightingdecor.com Summer 2023 Atlanta Market Features Education & Events https://www.furniturelightingdecor.com/summer-2023-atlanta-market-features-education-events <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Summer 2023 Atlanta Market Features Education &amp; Events</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/56510" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">gannunzio</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 05/23/2023 - 14:16</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><a href="http://atlantamarket.com" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Atlanta Market</a> combines education and celebration with daily programming to offer market exploration, industry insights and networking opportunities during the Summer 2023 edition, July 11-17, 2023, at AmericasMart Atlanta.</p> <p>"A full slate of Atlanta Market events will inspire, educate and entertain buyers this summer," said Karen Olson, IMC executive vice president and chief marketing officer.

In their new roles, they will iterate and innovate to provide a market experience that is efficient, effective and compelling for our customers.”<br /><br /><strong>Belshaw promoted to EVP, Chief Growth Officer</strong><br /><br /> In the newly created role of EVP, Chief Growth Officer, Belshaw will tap into more than three decades of industry experience to direct IMC’s growth, evolution and business expansion – in both the physical and digital realms. In her new role, Belshaw will be responsible for all IMC revenues as well as company-wide strategic growth initiatives. IMC leasing and tradeshow Senior Vice Presidents Ryan Mahoney (Furniture), Julie Messner (Home Décor), Katie Miner (ADAC), Terence Morris (Gift) and Caron Stover (Apparel), as well as Jesse James, Vice President of Shoppe Object, now report directly to Belshaw.<br /><br /> Belshaw is a more than 30-year veteran of the trade show industry. She joined IMC in 2012 as President of its fledgling Gift division, with the specific charge of expanding Las Vegas offerings, and her role soon broadened across IMC’s Las Vegas and High Point campuses. As a member of IMC’s executive leadership team, she helped facilitate IMC’s acquisition and integration of AmericasMart Atlanta in 2018 and Shoppe Object in 2022. Prior to joining IMC, she was SVP for George Little Management (GLM), the nation’s leading producer of consumer product tradeshows.<br /><br /> “Dorothy’s experience with revenue oversight and new business development, coupled with her 360-degree knowledge of our customers, uniquely positions her to help drive IMC’s growth,” said Maricich. “Dorothy has been a guiding influence this past decade and a valuable partner to me in defining what IMC is today, and will be tomorrow. IMC’s industry-leading markets in Atlanta, Las Vegas and High Point are juggernauts of commerce connecting 250,000 unique and qualified buyers with more than 13,000 brands year-round. Dorothy’s experience, leadership and insights will be invaluable in executing IMC’s omnichannel strategy.<br /><br /><strong>New Positions &amp; Promotions for Key IMC Staff</strong><br /><br /> Veteran IMC staffers, Karen Olson, Brett Austin and Brian Archer also assume expanded roles and responsibilities.<br /><br /> Karen Olson assumes the role of Chief Marketing Officer, reporting to Maricich. Olson has a more than 25-year career in wholesale marketing and business strategy. Since joining IMC in 2011, she has made an indelible imprint on the company’s marketing for High Point, as well as its expansion into Las Vegas in 2011, Atlanta in 2018 and JuniperMarket in 2020.<br /><br /> Brett Austin assumes the role of Senior Vice President, Procurement &amp; Production, reporting to Bill Lacey, IMC CFO. Austin has 20+ years of experience in managing advertising sales, production, procurement, project management and creative services. He joined IMC in 2018 as part of the company’s acquisition of AmericasMart Atlanta and oversees marketing operations across the company’s three campuses.<br /><br /> Brian Archer assumes additional responsibility as Senior Vice President of LightFair. Archer brings nearly 20 years of financial and accounting experience to his current role as Chief Accounting Officer for IMC. He joined IMC in 2014, with responsibility for oversight of the accounting, tax, treasury, risk management, payroll and financial reporting functions. He also serves as Board member of LightFair, an annual commercial lighting tradeshow, owned by IMC in partnership with IALD and IES. Dan Darby continues as LightFair Senior Vice President and Show Director, reporting directly to Archer.<br /><br /> “These promotions will allow us more effectively to support the current needs of our business, differentiate the customer experience and drive more value to all constituents,” said Maricich.<br /><br /><strong>Scott Eckman Departs IMC</strong><br /><br /> Scott Eckman, who joined IMC in 2011 and most recently served as EVP, Chief Revenue Officer, leaves IMC to become President of Loloi Rugs, a family-owned rug and home decor business with permanent showrooms in markets including Atlanta Market, High Point Market and Las Vegas Market.<br /><br /> “Scott’s business acumen, industry experience and collaborative leadership style position him well for this exciting new opportunity,” said Maricich. “I am happy for him, thank him for his immeasurable contributions to building the IMC of today, and look forward to continuing to work with him as a customer in IMC’s markets in Atlanta, High Point and Las Vegas.”</p> </div> Thu, 23 Feb 2023 16:05:20 +0000 gannunzio 7210 at https://www.furniturelightingdecor.com Fall 2022 InterHall Updates Bring New Brands to High Point Market https://www.furniturelightingdecor.com/fall-2022-interhall-updates-bring-new-brands-high-point-market <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Fall 2022 InterHall Updates Bring New Brands to High Point Market</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/56510" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">gannunzio</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 08/31/2022 - 10:35</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>International Market Centers’ (IMC) design-driven InterHall – a curated assortment of showrooms and temporary exhibits on the first floor of the International Home Furnishings Center (IHFC) – welcomes buyers to the Fall 2022 High Point Market with 10 updates among its 70+ brands.</p> <p>“InterHall is where High Point Market begins for many buyers – not only as a first stop at market, but the genesis of the trends and new ideas that will drive the design world for the next season,” said Scott Eckman, IMC executive vice president, chief revenue officer. “New brands joining the collection this Fall bring fresh perspectives and push the limits of great design.”</p> <p> </p> <h2>Salda Arredamenti is New to InterHall in Fall 2022</h2> <p>The 10 new InterHall brands are a mix of High Point Market debuts and new temporary exhibit spaces for existing brands. Some five newcomers are ModShop (customizable trend-driven furniture and accessories), One for Victory (modern furniture featuring premium leathers and luxe fabrics), Salda Arredamenti (fine, handcrafted furniture made in Italy since the early 19th century), urbeanea (customizable contemporary furniture made by artisans in Mexico from responsibly sourced materials), Vilmers (sofas handcrafted in Lithuania from sustainable materials). Three new spaces for existing High Point brands are AFK Furniture (nursery furniture handmade in the USA) returning after a pandemic hiatus, Lili Alessandra (hand-crafted pillows; upholstered headboards, ottomans and benches; and hand-knotted rugs) in its first branded space and Troels DenMark (custom upholstered furniture featuring luxury leathers and fabrics) opening a second location in IHFC. Two relocations are Benson-Cobb (abstract multi-media paintings and textile designs for furniture, rugs, wallcoverings and accessories) from the Suites at Market Square (SAMS) and Essentials for Living (transitional furniture in a unique mix of materials, finishes and designs) from Showplace.</p> <p>InterHall’s 80,000 square feet of exhibit space also includes nearly 20 showrooms in addition to 50+ temporary exhibitors. Showroom updates for Fall 2022 include the rebranding of two exhibitors: Selamat (sustainable and eco-friendly indoor/outdoor furniture, lighting, and home décor) is now Woven and Bungalow 5 (luxury modern furniture inspired by historic designs and finishes) is now Villa &amp; House.</p> <p>The InterHall debuts are just some of the updates throughout IHFC in Fall 2022 that will create a dynamic new shopping experience. The first phase of the reimagining of IHFC includes the relocations of some 21 permanent showrooms to and within the building to create a contiguous five-floor decor offering (floors 1-5) that begins with InterHall as well as a contiguous seven-story furniture destination (floors 6-12).</p> <p><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/5IgO5zVHiMuSvXv6X-Y9QxGn9Dx_rnvQLCC8QwM7yL_PimZQO6iz2vNDVhWHUusj-Kg1fScsF8N3-3wpHz91p2H8qjSN5iYxFdJellOXMZGANdqmrDu4xm-AsaPVgG-dwOK2vh7PE0UtJUpkNEDqbrM" /></p> </div> Wed, 31 Aug 2022 15:35:37 +0000 gannunzio 6870 at https://www.furniturelightingdecor.com IMC Announces Strategic Enhancements to IHFC https://www.furniturelightingdecor.com/imc-announces-strategic-enhancements-ihfc <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">IMC Announces Strategic Enhancements to IHFC</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/56510" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">gannunzio</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 04/04/2022 - 08:25</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>International Market Centers (IMC) today announced the launch of a multi-phase reorganization of the largest of its 17 High Point properties – the International Home Furnishings Center (IHFC) – which will create a dynamic new shopping experience through strategic relocations of top furniture brands onto contiguous floors and the creation of an additional predominantly accessories floor beginning in October 2022.<br /><br /> “Rarely do we have the opportunity to intentionally create new merchandise neighborhoods in this iconic High Point destination,” said Scott Eckman, IMC executive vice president, chief revenue officer. “No other building has the depth and breadth of furniture, bedding and décor product as IHFC and this restack and investment in the building will allow us to best showcase the cornerstone of IMC’s High Point portfolio.”</p> <p> </p> <h2>IHFC Reorganization</h2> <p><img alt="IHFC" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="0a5c09d5-581b-454b-b51d-3647d60276b9" height="439" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/IHFC.jpg" width="689" loading="lazy" /></p> <p>The strategic relocations of some 20+ home furnishings brands will create a contiguous seven-story furniture destination anchored by some of the most influential brands in the industry including Ashley Furniture, AICO, Bassett Furniture, Bernhardt, Flexsteel, Lane Venture, La-Z-Boy, Magnussen, United Furniture and more.<br /><br /> With these relocations, Floor 5 of IHFC becomes a strong new design destination featuring a robust selection of accessories, lighting, rugs and textiles at the top of a contiguous multi-floor accessories collection that begins with the celebrated InterHall temporary exhibits on the ground floor. Some eight home décor and furniture brands – including Akara, Art Carpet, GTR Leather, LR Home, Palmetto Home, Rizzy, SAMS International and Zuo – launch the new accessories floor beginning in October 2022.<br /><br /> “A thoughtful reorganization of showrooms will enrich IHFC’s venerable collection of brands,” added Eckman. “Our similar projects at World Market Center Las Vegas and AmericasMart Atlanta have proven that an optimized marketplace encourages discovery for buyers and allows categories to truly flourish. This investment will allow us to grow both our furniture and accessories offerings and reinforce the impact of IHFC.”<br /><br /> International Market Centers’ (IMC) International Home Furnishings Center (IHFC) and its landmark InterHall destination are the epicenter of design-driven home furnishings sourcing with nearly 400 permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits.</p> <p> </p> <h2>Physical Improvements Include Façade</h2> <p><img alt="IMC renovations" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="89f08296-7130-4b54-b35a-1d00053cc569" height="284" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/IMC.png" width="533" loading="lazy" /></p> <p>Complementing the product reorganization is an exterior update that modernizes the overall look and feel of IHFC. Upgrades include a new architectural finish for the Commerce façade and a re-surfacing of the entire building exterior. The project launches in the fourth quarter of 2022 with completion for the Spring 2024 High Point Market.<br /><br /> Additionally, to allow for easy access to multiple showrooms, IMC is adding an additional internal corridor to Floors 5 and 7 as part of the relocations. This update joins additional capital investments in IHFC including new paint, carpeting and lighting throughout the building. Additional physical updates are to be announced.<br /><br /> “The IHFC updates are just one element in IMC’s ongoing plan to update our furniture and home décor presentations in Atlanta, High Point and Las Vegas,” added Eckman. “We are actively launching initiatives to expand our offerings to attract new business channels and improve the overall sourcing experience.”<br /><br /> In line with this, IMC is developing new programming and related activities in connection with category expansion and refinement, kicking off with the new “Illuminate High Point Market” guide featuring 17 participating showrooms at the Spring 2022 Market. A designer-driven fixed-wire lighting initiative has doubled the resources in High Point and Las Vegas since October of 2021. In High Point, new showrooms for Kalco Lighting, Lite Source and Schonbek are set to debut at the 2022 Spring Market, joining the recently opened showrooms for Hinkley,Varaluz and Hudson Valley Lighting and an expanded Hubbardton Forge. In Las Vegas, new brands include Craftmade, Hudson Valley Lighting and Hubbardton Forge.</p> </div> Mon, 04 Apr 2022 13:25:24 +0000 gannunzio 6520 at https://www.furniturelightingdecor.com New Illuminate High Point Market Guide Spotlights IMC’s Lighting Resources https://www.furniturelightingdecor.com/new-illuminate-high-point-market-guide-spotlights-imcs-lighting-resources <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">New Illuminate High Point Market Guide Spotlights IMC’s Lighting Resources</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/56510" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">gannunzio</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 03/15/2022 - 13:46</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>International Market Centers (IMC) is spotlighting its expansive fixed-wire lighting resources at the April 2-6, 2022 High Point Market through its new <em><strong>Illuminate High Point Market</strong></em> guide showcasing 17 participating lighting brands with images, special offers, events location and contact information.<br /><br /> “Growth in fixed-wire lighting resources and an increased interest in the impact of lighting on health and well-being has made High Point Market a key destination for retailers and designers to source in this category,” said Dorothy Belshaw, IMC executive vice president, chief customer and marketing officer. “Through the <em>Illuminate High Point Market</em> guide, we are facilitating connections between buyers and brands looking to build new relationships within the lighting category.”<br /><br /> It features these 17 participating companies:</p> <ul><li><strong>Cal Lighting &amp;

Maria Mullen, CEO at Hubbardton Forge explained, “There's a real movement to understand how light affects health and mood and as that becomes more understood, lighting becomes more and more important. Everyone can admire a beautiful dining room chandelier or pendants over a kitchen island, but now they are starting to understand that the right color temperatures, the right light output and the change of light during the day and night have an impact on the body and the spirit.” Additionally, time spent at home during the pandemic has made consumers reevaluate their home lighting, driving sales of new fixtures according to Mullen.</p> </div> Tue, 15 Mar 2022 18:46:39 +0000 gannunzio 6479 at https://www.furniturelightingdecor.com Home Décor and Furniture Updates Expand Discovery at IMC’s High Point Properties https://www.furniturelightingdecor.com/home-decor-and-furniture-updates-expand-discovery-imcs-high-point-properties <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Home Décor and Furniture Updates Expand Discovery at IMC’s High Point Properties</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/56510" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">gannunzio</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 03/07/2022 - 10:19</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>International Market Centers (IMC) expands its nearly 600 High Point Market furniture and home décor offerings with nine more showroom updates presenting fresh furniture, décor, fixed-wire lighting and textiles at the April 2-6, 2022 market.
