The Atlanta Spring Gift, Home Furnishings & Holiday Market is March 13-15, 2019

We have a spring in our step because the Atlanta Spring Gift, Home Furnishings & Holiday Market kicks off tomorrow. 

As you plan your visit to AmericasMart keep these things in mind: 

 

What to Buy:

In addition to connecting with lines you may have missed at the January market, use the Spring market to focus on season-specific buying.

Complete your holiday orders the closing deadlines and secure immediate outdoor living product for the upcoming summer season.

Eye-catching displays can grab your customers’ attention and drive revenue. You may already have a floor plan for your store and you may be doing all the right things when it comes to signage and traffic patterns. However, your employees may still be struggling with creating engaging displays and using effective shelving strategies. This session will go address the new things your customer expects to see when they come in to your store to make their experience a memorable one.
