Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market Opens Today

ATLANTA-A wide array of gift, tabletop and housewares items will be introduced here this week as the International Gift & Home Furnishings market gets underway. Permanent showrooms will be open today through July 18, while the Temporaries will be open July 13-17.

This year's summer edition will feature a greatly expanded Home section, according to show owner and organizer AmericasMart, which incorporates HD Home, a juried collection on the first floor of Building 1; a special preview will take place Thursday, July 12 from 2-6 p.m. Expanding gift category resources include 42 new showrooms in Building 2 and Building 2 WestWing, said AmericasMart, as well as a newly configured corridor on the seventh floor of Building 2 and Building 2 WestWing, "giving buyers added ease and convenience for navigating the campus and finding new product resources."

The Gourmet collection has also grown and will feature several educational seminars and events and celebrity chef appearances and book signings in its demonstration kitchen on the eighth floor.
