IMC Names People’s Choice Winners In Market Snapshot Program

Three Atlanta Market exhibitors— Glee Jewelry, Puffin Coolers and VE Designs— are among the inaugural People’s Choice winners in International Market Centers’ new Market Snapshot program.

The products were selected from 40 finalists via online voting in the weeks before the Winter 2020 Atlanta Market. An additional three winners will be named at Las Vegas Market later this month.

“IMC’s Market Snapshot program previews and celebrates the taste-making innovations of the market,” said Dorothy Belshaw, International Market Centers chief marketing and digital officer. “The People’s Choice winners reflect the gift and home product introductions that are most popular with the most discerning buyers: the retailer and designers who shop the IMC markets.”

The winning products include the Puffin Bottle Holder by Puffin Coolers, an insulated bottle cooler with a carabiner, bottle opener and utility pouch from Gib Carson & Associates in Building 2, Floor 13.

The Market Snapshot program is designed to showcase new, innovative and trendsetting furniture, home décor and gift products from across the Atlanta Market and Las Vegas Market on social media, in buyer communications and through the markets’ websites. Special in-booth signage identifies winners at the market. The Las Vegas Market winners will be announced on January 26, 2020.
