Atlanta Market Expands Tabletop, Gift And Gourmet Offerings

AmericasMart Atlanta will present its largest-to-date permanent gourmet housewares, gourmet foods, and tabletop and entertaining collection at the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market.

Scheduled to run January 10 to 17, 2017, the market will showcase a multi-floor showroom collection that will house 800 lines in approximately 150,000 square feet of exhibition space.

According to AmericasMart Atlanta, the collection’s growth is fueled by top lines and designs enhanced by the accessibility and connectivity of tabletop and gourmet product strategically located and aligned to ensure natural shopping synergy. For example, buyers can source complementary merchandise on contiguous floors, and can access adjacent Building 1 home furnishings offerings, which encourages interior designers and furnishings retailers to explore new categories.

“From the pantry to the kitchen to the table, the must-have product is all here,” said Kristi Forbes, AmericasMart vp/gift leasing. “Not only do we have the most comprehensive collection of housewares, gourmet and tabletop product, AmericasMart sets the trends and the standards for the industry.”

This year, the Atlanta Market will also celebrate its 60th anniversary. To celebrate, AmericasMart will present “Diamonds of Design”, a new vignette gallery presented in partnership with Southern Living, Coastal Living and Sunset magazines. The exhibition is in celebration of AmericasMart’s diamond anniversary and assembles designers from coast to coast in Atlanta to bring to life their favorite design moments, eras and lifestyles of the last 60 years.

Additional presentations will also take place, from design, entertaining, lifestyle and culinary trendsetters and thought leaders including interactive events in the Fiesta Dinnerware demonstration kitchen.
