Top Designers to Speak at AmericasMart's Home Center in January

ATLANTA-Designers Thom Filicia, Brad Ford and Kathryn M. Ireland will make presentations during the Atlanta Gift and Home Furnishings Market, scheduled for Jan. 6-13, 2010.

The presentations will take place in AmericasMart's Building 1, the Home product center and the prime destination for the category. The show will also see the relaunch of fine linens on floors nine and ten. AmericasMart is strategically staging anchor showrooms on these floors to generate energy and attract more buyers with enhanced cross-merchandising opportunities.

"The energy and excitement exuding from within the Home product center has brought this category to a new level, attracting major industry players and internationally renowned designers," said Dave Savula, senior vice president of Building 1. "With this growth, we have reinvented ourselves and created a fresh center unlike any other. We look forward to its continued development in 2010 and beyond."
