Atlanta Market is set to present the biggest in-person buying opportunity of the Winter 2024 season with more than 6,000 brands leveraging pioneering product and a robust roster of revamped education and celebration for retailers and buyers. Registration is now open for January 16-22, 2024, Atlanta Market at AmericasMart Atlanta.
“Sourcing opportunities at the top of the Winter 2024 Market season are abundant for Atlanta Market buyers,” said Bob Maricich, ANDMORE CEO. “As we look ahead to the next edition of Atlanta Market, we are delivering on the promise to provide the best products and experiences within our showrooms and throughout our campus. With opportunities at every corner to discover and learn from and alongside industry mavens, Atlanta Market is poised to be a can’t-miss this winter.”
New Offerings Enhance Market Sourcing
Atlanta Market resources continue to expand in several key Atlanta Market categories – seasonal gift, LUXE home décor, soft goods and immediate delivery – along with continued growth in Casual/Outdoor furnishings for the Winter 2024 Market season. Winter 2024 highlights include an added LUXE component as temporary home relocates to Building 2, Floor 2, augmented Cash & Carry resources and the remerchandising of The Gardens.
In connection with a major expansion by Creative Coop on the 10th floor of Building 1, The Gardens, Atlanta Market’s premier destination for outdoor accessories, showcases a remerchandised collection on the 9th and 10th floors of Building 2. The Home Accents & Fine Linens temporary category moves from Building 1 to Building 2, bringing Atlanta Market’s 30+ temporary neighborhoods together on five connected floors on the lower levels of Buildings 2 and 3.
Following the successful launch of the Casual category at the Summer 2023 Atlanta Market, casual furniture and outdoor accessories expand with some 15 new brands opening new showrooms on Building 1’s 6th floor, bringing the market’s total Casual collection to nearly 400,000 square feet of permanent showrooms.
