Atlanta Market rescinds date shift
July 22, 2013,
Atlanta - After announcing earlier this month that Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market will operate on a six-day schedule starting in 2014, show organizer AmericasMart today said the schedule will instead retain its normal Tuesday-to-Tuesday pattern.
"Although a shortened run was previously announced, the results of extensive qualitative research conducted with buyers and exhibitors during the July 2013 market indicate that AmericasMart markets are increasingly too important and much too valuable for anything other than a straight Tuesday-to-Tuesday run," AmericasMart said in a statement.
The restored schedule is as follows:
- Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market: Showrooms from Jan. 7-14; temporaries from Jan. 9-13.
- Atlanta International Area Rug Market featuring the National Oriental Rug Show: Showrooms Jan. 8-11; temporaries Jan. 9-11.
- Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market: Showrooms July 8-15; temporaries July 10-14.
- Atlanta International Area Rug Market: Showrooms July 9-12.
