Atlanta – The AmericasMart here, long the home of the seasonal area rug and gift markets, for the first time will add licensing to its highlights.
The debut is set for Jan. 9-11 in the Building 2 temporaries section, as a new component of the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings market, which this year overlaps with the Atlanta International Area Rug market.
AmericasMart said of Licensing & Design, “This product collection completes an essential component of everyday business and creates a one-stop destination for permanent and temporary exhibitors seeking new artisan talent and fresh design options for new product applications … and is poised to help jumpstart product planning, networking and securing partnerships, as well as streamline the licensing process for both artists and agencies and designers and manufacturers.”
