Atlanta Spring Gift, Home Furnishings
& Holiday Market®
Showrooms & Temporaries: March 8 – 10, 2017
It’s less than two weeks from the start of the July 2011 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market® and Atlanta International Area Rug Market®. Are you prepared?
There are basic components in the groundwork for a successful Market trip. Taking a few simple steps before you ever leave home can make the difference between feeling overwhelmed and scattered and being focused and on top of things.
The key is preparation and organization. What do you need to accomplish? Are you ordering from existing lines to simply fill in inventory? Are you considering expanding into a new category? There’s an adage to “buy what yousell, don’t sell what you buy” that applies to almost every retailer. Make a plan and stick to it; otherwise it’s easy to get sidetracked and suddenly find you only have a day left until you go home, and you haven’t accomplished what you intended.
Whether you’ve been coming to AmericasMart for 30 years or it’s your first time, here’s a pre-Market checklist to get started:
We want everyone to have the best possible Market experience in Atlanta – starting before you ever leave home. Use AmericasMart.com and the AmericasMart Magazine to plot a course for each day. Don’t forget to include time for educational events (there are some phenomenal learning opportunities at Markets) as well as some of the social events. The Atlanta Buyer’s Guide available at all registration desks has a complete, day-by-day list of what’s happening.
Don’t forget to book your hotel stay for the January Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market by Dec. 3 to secure rooms and rates in the AmericasMart hotel blocks. for more information, click here or go to http://www.americasmart.com and check the Travel tab.
We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta in January!
