Exhibitors and showroom personnel MUST wear badges at all times.
Upon execution of your lease, you may obtain a permanent AmericasMart badge through the Operations office. A valid photo ID is required. Exhibitor Photo ID badges are issued by AmericasMart only to employees of leaseholders, and only upon the specific request of an authorized officer of the leaseholder. Requests for Photo ID badges must be in writing, either on an AmericasMart Badge Request form or on the leaseholder’s company letterhead.
The Photo ID Office is located in the AmericasMart Operations Center, 220 Spring Street, next to Building 2 (the Gift Building). Hours are extended during Markets. Please contact the administrator at 404-220-3076 for further details.
Temporary Exhibitor Badges
Authorized part-time or temporary showroom employees will be issued temporary exhibitor passes by Buyer Registration only upon request of the showroom owner. Temporary exhibitor passes are issued only for a particular market/show or other special need. Please help us control access by retrieving these badges from your personnel when access is no longer required.
Permanent Showroom owners and employees may request guest/courtesy badges from registration for access exclusive to the building where their showroom is located. These badges are only valid for the day requested, and if possible, we would prefer 24 hours notice for requests. The following information is required in writing via fax, email or in person:
- Date Guest will be arriving
- Showroom name requesting pass
- Showroom location requesting pass
- Name of person from showroom requesting pass
- Name of guest (first and last please)
Children under 12 are not allowed unless they are children of the showroom owner or an employee of the showroom. Children of showroom owners or employees are required to wear their courtesy badges while in the buildings.
You can only request a courtesy pass for the building where your showroom is located.
Manufacturers reps (also called sales or line reps) who are new to Market must present a photo ID, along with a business card, brochure or portfolio for their product line that’s currently represented at AmericasMart. Each rep will be registered as an Exhibitor. A rep who represents a product exhibited in multiple showrooms will be registered as a Market Invitee.
Manufacturers reps who’ve attended Market before must present a photo ID and a business card to obtain a current show badge.
Non-Exhibiting Manufacturers Reps
Manufacturers reps who are new to Market and represent a product not currently shown at AmericasMart must present a photo ID, along with photos of their product or a catalog, plus a business card. In January and July, there is a designated registration desk on Floor 1 of Building 1.
Non-Exhibiting Manufacturers are not permitted entrance to area rug shows without permission of leasing. Solicitation of product and product samples and taking photographs are not permitted.
