Atlanta Market at AmericasMart opens the year with renewed optimism January 12-19. Source the nation’s largest gift, lifestyle, and home décor merchandise mix with 2021 product launches taking center stage. It’s the place to see, touch, and feel the latest trends and newest color palettes from thousands of premier brands.
After a hiatus at Summer Market, the ever-popular Temporaries are back for January. These tradeshow-style floors are the go-to spot for the latest trends and undiscovered gems. You can expect adjusted floor layouts to allow for social distancing with wider, one-way aisles. Several temporary categories will also be relocating for the market so be sure to grab a Buyer’s Guide at Registration for the latest updates.
Showrooms are the heart of Atlanta Market. More than 300 Home Décor showrooms present lighting, accent furniture, rugs, wall décor, casual furniture, and linens in Building 1, while Gift & Lifestyle is the focus in Building 2, including stationery, jewelry, personal care, decorative accents, toys, and gourmet foods. January Market is also the key buying opportunity for holiday 2021 with five floors of seasonal products showcased at the top of Building 1.
Atlanta Next renovations and realignments continue throughout the AmericasMart campus. The lobby level of Building 1 will feature the debut of a new showroom for design-driven lighting brand Currey & Company in January. The John Portman Boulevard and Ted Turner Drive entrances are in their final stages, while the Peachtree Street entrance overhaul continues into 2021.
Safety protocols—including mandatory masks, daily temperature checks, and social distancing guidelines—ensure that buyers and sellers can conduct business safely throughout the 7+ million-square-foot campus. The market center is also requiring pre-registration and continuing the use of digital badges to eliminate touchpoints.
