AmericasMart's Fall Gift & Home to Run Concurrently With Apparel Market
February 14, 2011,
ATLANTA-AmericasMart Atlanta will premiere the Atlanta Apparel Market together with the Fall Gift & Home Furnishings Market and Atlanta Gourmet Market this fall.
"We have a dynamic offering of products in our Apparel markets and in our Gift & Home Furnishings markets, and we continue to see key categories evolve and cross over," said Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., president and chief operating officer of AmericasMart. "Hosting these markets together is an ideal opportunity to provide more buying power to our retailers, and more retailers to our exhibitors. It ultimately enhances the overall Market experience."
Both the Apparel and Gift & Home Furnishings markets will operate as normal with respect to show hours and exhibitor locations.
In addition, retailers will benefit from an all-star lineup of educational seminars, events and entertainment. Activities will interweave topics and trends covering gift, home and apparel, providing industry-specific insight and showing the advantages of blending these categories. Event details and specific highlights will be forthcoming as the fall markets approach.
