New Layout for The Gardens Debuts at AmericasMart January 2018 Market
November 8, 2017,
ATLANTA, Nov. 1, 2017 – It’s a new season for The Gardens at AmericasMart Atlanta, with select showrooms relocating and expanding, and an all-new buying experience presented by Creative Co-Op in a new more-than-28,000-square-foot space.
The new Creative Co-Op presentation in Building 2, Floor 10, establishes a fresh heartbeat for The Gardens and introduces a re-imagined showroom experience with inspirational product presentations, new product categories and a dedicated events space for networking, educational programming and celebrating the retail community. With the Creative Co-Op relocation establishing one of AmericasMart’s largest exhibitor footprints, the Gardens exhibitor community steps up with enhanced and expanded product resources, variety and selection.
The new Creative Co-Op space and the relocated showrooms will open at The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market Jan. 9-16, 2018. They will also be open Mondays through Fridays as part of AmericasMart’s Open Year-Round resources. Relocating showrooms are:
• Alfresco Home
• Aspen Brands
• Birds Choice / Perfect Choice Furniture
• Cohasset Gifts & Garden
• Esschert Design USA, LLC
• Garden Age Supply
• Garden Terrarium Kits
• Gift Essentials / Gold Crest Distributing
• Greenfield Trading, Inc.
• Hi-Line Gift Ltd.
• Home & More LLC
• In The Breeze
• Marshall Home & Garden
• Mr. Bird
• Orlandi Statuary Company
• Pottery Express, LLC
• QMT Associates, Inc.
• Smart Living Inc.
• Summer Classics
• Viz Glass
• Windham Enterprises
Movement in Building 2, Floors 9 and 10 has allowed longtime exhibitors to update their showroom spaces.
“Our new showroom is at least three times larger than our space was on Floor 10,” said Bill Dual, president of In The Breeze. “With this much space we have room to show almost our entire line, and, for sure, all of our best sellers in all categories.”
In January, In The Breeze will present its full line of kites and kite accessories, which it has always carried but previously didn’t have room to show at AmericasMart.
Cohasset Gifts & Garden will show both its wind chimes and molten glass collections in its new space. “Photos never do the wind chimes nor the molten glass sculptures justice, and buyers really need to see them in person to understand why they are important pieces,” explained owner Diane Anderson. “Our displays give the retailers ideas of how to merchandise the product so they can sell it in their stores. The Market and the new space lets us make a connection with our buyers and work with them on how to grow their businesses.”
