AmericasMart: 'Robust' Order-Writing Last Week

ATLANTA-AmericasMart said a large and growing national and international buyer base, new and newly expanded product collections and consistent order writing marked the July 2011 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market, which closed its eight-day run July 20.

The show owner and organizer reported "strong representation" from key northeastern, Midwestern and far-west states. It credited its new HD Home and its High Design divisions, along with "the star power represented in marquee-level events, programs and promotions," which included appearances by leading designers and celebrity chefs, with generating energy at the show. It also said that both permanent and temporary showrooms reported strong order writing.
