AmericasMart Atlanta and the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC) are collaborating for the fourth consecutive year to create the Southeast’s premier dual-venue design destination, September 19-22. The two design-focused markets will offer top-of-the-line product selections from leading home décor, lifestyle, furniture and rug brands between Fall Market at AmericasMart, September 19-21, and DISCOVER ADAC at ADAC, September 20-22.
“Together, AmericasMart and ADAC create a design destination offering a full-package of resources, networking and education that allows retailers to easily source the product they need,” said Bob Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers. “Between both locations, Atlanta will be the peak of design trends this September.”
All trade registrants for Fall Market and DISCOVER ADAC will have access to ADAC’s 65+ high design home décor, lifestyle and furniture showrooms in Buckhead and AmericasMart’s 400+ Open Year-Round showrooms displaying nearly 2,000 lines in home décor, lifestyle, gift and apparel in Downtown Atlanta. To facilitate travel between both locations, IMC will provide a free, hourly shuttle between the two campuses on overlapping market days, Tuesday, Sept. 20 and Wednesday, Sept. 21.
Beyond exhibits, Fall Market and DISCOVER ADAC participants can draw inspiration from unique “Behind the Windows” vignettes installed at both design venues. The two coordinated vignettes, which will be merchandised and curated by leading Atlanta interior designer, Lia Shin of C+H Interiors, will showcase the exclusive and complementary design resources available across both campuses.
As an added benefit, attendees will have access to seminars and networking events with some of the top industry leaders in design. A full schedule of sessions will be available in the coming weeks at Americasmart.com/Year-Round/Calendar-of-Events and ADACatlanta.com/discover-adac.
“What I love about our partnership with AmericasMart is that we have become a fall design destination for the Southeast,” said Katie Miner, ADAC General Manager. “It’s a wonderful time for designers to shop both campuses and for design enthusiasts to have access to events, designers and more during that week. We’re a one-stop-resource between both campuses to find everything. If you are in the business of design, this is THE time to head to Atlanta.”
Fall Market runs September 19-21 from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. The three-day buying, educational and networking event for designers and retailers allows those in the design industry to come to one central, Southeast location to learn more about design in Lunch & Learn sessions and events in the new, state-of-the-art Designer Workspace, while shopping the biggest upcoming trends. Merchandise is showcased in AmericasMart’s Open Year-Round design center plus additional showrooms across the home, gift, seasonal and rug collections in a market only open to designers and retailers.
