AmericasMart and ADAC are joining forces to host a week-long celebration of design this September through Fall Design Week and DISCOVER ADAC, creating the ultimate Southeast shopping destination for design. September 23-26, they’re inviting designers and design enthusiasts alike to experience unparalleled product selection coupled with presentations, book signings, panel discussions, and parties featuring top talent and industry leaders.
AmericasMart’s Fall Design Week Featuring Gift & Home will be held September 23-25. Fall Design Week is exclusively open to the trade, welcoming designers and buyers to spend the three-day event attending educational seminars and networking opportunities while sourcing from open year-round resources and select additional showrooms. With a short trip from Downtown to Buckhead, this year’s DISCOVER ADAC is set for September 24-26 and invites members of the trade and the public to explore new sources of authentic design inspiration through renowned interior design keynote speakers, book signings, salon-style talks, product launches, cocktail sip and strolls, pop-up shops, and more. The programming in each location will perfectly complement one another, with a focus on expanding education at AmericasMart and finding inspiration at ADAC.
“Together, AmericasMart and ADAC are the Southeast’s most comprehensive, dual-venue design resource,” said Bob Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers, parent company of AmericasMart and ADAC. “The collaboration of Fall Design Week and DISCOVER ADAC allows the design and retail communities to discover what makes each location unique and explore how they can use both resources to create exceptional design. The design centers’ complementary programming, events, and product offerings make Atlanta a must-attend location this September.”
AmericasMart presents nearly 2,000 lighting, accent furniture, rugs, wall decor, casual furniture, and linens brands, presented in 300 showrooms, complementing the nation’s largest gift product mix. ADAC consists of over 65 showrooms offering 1,200 of the industry’s finest product lines, including furniture, fabric, rugs, lighting, accessories, floor and wall coverings, antiques, fine art and framing, kitchens, bath, tile and stone, and home theater products.
Beloved interior designer Steve McKenzie will further enhance the collaboration between AmericasMart and ADAC with curated, luxuriously livable vignettes at each campus. Steve McKenzie will utilize trending products from a variety of interior design showrooms at both locations to show how AmericasMart and ADAC represent a one-stop shopping destination. A free shuttle will be provided on September 24-25 for easy transportation between both venues on days with concurrent programming.
