Atlanta Market Launches Today
Atlanta, GA, January 14, 2020-The Atlanta Market, formerly known as the Atlanta International Area Rug Market, opens today at AmericasMart in Atlanta, Georgia, running through January 21.
In 2018, International Market Centers (IMC) completed the acquisition of AmericasMart, bringing it under the IMC umbrella with the High Point Market and Las Vegas Market, and this year, the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market and Atlanta International Area Rug Market were rebranded under the Atlanta Market name, aligning its name/branding structure with that of the other two markets.
Since the IMC acquisition, several area rug exhibitors have relinquished showrooms at the facility, including, recently, Safavieh. However, on January 15, Balta, owner of Bentley, is cutting the ribbon on a new showroom at the facility. Other area rug exhibitors include Kas, Kalaty and Loloi.
In total, the Atlanta Market features 20 area rug retailers; Las Vegas Market features 29; and High Point Market has well over 100.
