In what is shaping up to the be one of the most exciting Markets to date, the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market is prepared for a January 8th opening.
The biannual event, which runs from January 8th through the 15th, features over 9,000 brands across all home furnishing, decor, and gift categories. This season, Market organizers have put together a jam-packed week complete with new exhibitors and a number of exciting events.
The speaker roster for AmericasMart Atlanta is particularly notable and includes industry staples and newbies alike such as Rifle Paper Co.’s Anna Bond, DIY Network’s Tamara Day, and lifestyle guru Tom Mirabile.
Another exciting feature unique to AmericasMart is #ShoptheShow. Showgoers can follow along with key influencers such as Annette Joseph, Jenny Komenda, Mandy Kellogg Rye, Kelsey Nixon, Mat Sanders, and Brandon Quattrone as they search high and low for the next big trends.
“Join these designers and do-it-yourselfers as they scour Market and (literally) shop ’til they drop to find the most trend-forward home décor, gift, tabletop, and seasonal merchandise this January,” said event organizers.
The Fiesta Dinnerware Demonstration Kitchen will house frequent cooking demonstrations. Celebrities chefs such as Paula Deen, Food Network’s Kelsey Nixon, and Suzanne Vizethann are scheduled to show off their kitchen prowess and share a few tips and tricks along the way.
In addition to all of these exciting events, many exhibitors are hosting their own parties to mix, mingle, and network with fellow industry insiders. Events include cocktail hours, brunch events, and fundraisers.
There’s a lot to look forward to at the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market!
