  • How are market dates determined?

    Many, many factors affect Market dates including manufacturing schedules, retail seasons and holidays. For more than 25 years, AmericasMart has maintained a consistent date pattern for January and July Markets based on input from our customers. We are the first major Market each year, ensuring buyers and exhibitors can begin the year with the most opportunity for success.

  • Why do I have to book hotel rooms so far in advance to stay downtown?

    More than 13 million people visit Atlanta for business each year, along with more 32 million who visit for fun. There are a lot of people who want to stay downtown so it's a supply and demand factor. There are more than 12,000 rooms within walking distance but it makes sense to book early through AmericasMart to get the best rates on the most desirable hotels.

  • Why aren't all the showrooms open all the time?

    While many of our permanent showrooms are open between markets, some opt to only open for markets and special events. Each showroom is independent and can make the choice of when they do business. We always suggest buyers call ahead of time to ensure the showrooms they want to visit will be open between markets.

      Membership is for qualified buyers only; exhibitors aren’t eligible.

      Members have access to a hospitality lounge, Internet services, complimentary refreshments, a phone and message center, and a copier/fax. Lounges are open during January & July Gift & Home Furnishings Market business hours.

      A Member company/store may bring two guests into the lounge. The Member must sign in and accompany the guests while in the lounge.

  • What if I am a new buyer?

    Read and Review our Admission Policy.

    Visit our First Time Buyer Registration page

  • What's the difference between direct manufacturers (company sales reps) and manufacturer representatives (multi-company sales reps)?

    Company sales reps work only for their company, selling only their products while multi-line reps represent multiple manufacturers, often within the same industry. However, while some showrooms carry a variety of manufacturers under one home or gift umbrella, the product lines can cross a broad spectrum. As example, a tabletop sales representative would only sell products from one company, but that could be many different lines. A multi-line rep would sell tabletop lines from a variety of manufacturers.

  • What exactly is Market Club?

    Market Club is a perk for our most loyal buyers. Membership is automatic, but a company must attend five markets over five years. Members have access to a hospitality lounge, business services and refreshments during markets.
