In a continued reimagining of its product resources, location changes for several Atlanta Market temporary exhibit categories will create more cohesive and compelling presentation of 1,400 gift and home brands across more than 30 categories, January 16-22, 2024, at AmericasMart Atlanta. Atlanta Market’s temporary exhibits, now housed exclusively in Buildings 2 and 3, open on Wednesday, Jan. 17, and run through Sunday, Jan. 21.

“Atlanta Market consistently delivers gift and home discovery across diverse lines and vibrant products,” said Dororthy Belshaw, ANDMORE executive vice president, chief growth officer. “Longstanding market favorites and brand-new exhibitors marry the tried-and-true with bold innovation at Atlanta Market this Winter.”

The Winter 2024 Atlanta Market inspires comprehensive sourcing as six of its 30+ product categories relocate. With this change, 1,400 temporary exhibitors are housed across nine floors in Buildings 2 and 3.

Some 70 Home Accents & Home Furnishings and Fine Linens & Home Textiles resources relocate from Building 1 to Building 2, joining Home LUXE on Floor 2, consolidating all home décor exhibitors together onto one floor. In line with this change, the Market’s four housewares, tabletop and specialty food categories – Gourmet; Gourmet LUXE; Housewares; Tabletop & Entertaining; and Tabletop LUXE – will be presented together on Floor 3.

Following its Summer 2023 Atlanta Market debut, Modern Maker moves to Building 2, Floor 1, joining HIGH DESIGN and HIGH DESIGN LUXE. In its Winter Market debut, Modern Maker, a collection of design-led, handmade products ranging from lifestyle and home décor to gift, expands to feature: Andy Koupal (hand blown glass design); Carter & Rose (ceramics and planters); Gary Bodker Designs GreenTree (taper and sculptural candles); Matt Kolbrener Glass (glass and steel design); and ZPOTS Studio Pottery (hand-built pottery and mugs)

In a continuation of ANDMORE’s partnerships with three key trade organizations, specialized product offerings add to the buyer experience with juried collections at Atlanta Market. Museum Store Association’s The Gallery Collection returns to Building 3, Floor 2 with a curated collection of 21 exhibitors showing books, Fair Trade, garden and home décor goods. Georgia Grown brings 16 Georgia-native brands to Market in Building 2, Floor 4 and Greeting Card Association features *Noted Village in Building 3, Floor 5, complete with 10 exhibitors showcasing on-trend greeting cards.
