A new curated shopping experience is launching at the country’s leading home, gift and lifestyle marketplace. Shop the Show, an all-new program where retailers, designers and home décor lovers near and far can see curated shopping adventures through the eyes of leading lifestyle influencers, stages its global premier at The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market® this July. Shop the Show is produced by AmericasMart® with lifestyle experts REstyleSOURCE and Dana Andrew Communications.
Influencers from across the design and lifestyle spectrum—Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin of The Home Edit, Orlando Soria of Hommemaker, Chris Marcum and Julia Marcum of Chris Loves Julia and Brittany Watson Jepsen of The House That Lars Built—descend on AmericasMart during the Market week to document their favorite finds, experiences, events and more. Buyers, exhibitors and design fanatics can follow their adventure on social media with the hashtag #ShoptheShowATL.
The influencers’ favorite Market finds are the inspiration for trend-driven pop-ups styled by REstyleSOURCE throughout the campus.
“The AmericasMart Market is an exhilarating, entertaining and inspirational experience like none other,” says Dave Savula, executive vice president of Leasing. “Through Shop the Show, buyers will get a new view on shopping the Market, whether they are longtime attendees or have never joined us before.”
“We could not think of a better marketplace to launch our new Shop the Show concept,” says Kristin Alber, REstyleSOURCE founder. “The depth and breadth of the Market yields a plethora of amazing stories, products and experiences to explore. We cannot wait to see what these influencers discover.”
The influencers will mingle with Market attendees at the Shop the Show Soirée in Building 1, Floor 10 on Friday, July 13, hosted in partnership with Business of Home by Editor at Large. Sponsoring showrooms will be offering giveaways, entertainment, show specials and more.
Business of Home Contributing Editor Dennis Scully moderates a panel discussion with the influencers on Saturday, July 14 on the AmericasMart® LIVE Main Stage. They will share what they see coming next, how they edit, and the inside scoop on how they have created big brands—both in real life and in tiny Instagram squares.
