Resources, education & networking shape Atlanta’s dual-venue Fall 2021 design experience
ATLANTA – August 4, 2021 – For a third consecutive year, AmericasMart and the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC) are collaborating to create the Southeast’s premier dual-venue design shopping destination, September 20-23 in Atlanta, with unparalleled product selections from leading home décor, lifestyle, furniture and rug brands. Fall Design Week at AmericasMart will run September 20-22, and DISCOVER ADAC will operate September 21-23.
“Bringing together AmericasMart and ADAC for a collaborative market experience allows the design community an expanded opportunity to network with industry leaders, preview upcoming trends and buy accordingly,” said Bob Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers. “For one week, with two design destinations, Atlanta will be the pinnacle of high-end design trends this September.”
All trade registrants for Fall Design Week and DISCOVER ADAC will have access to ADAC’s 65+ high design home décor, lifestyle and furniture showrooms and to AmericasMart’s 400+ Open Year Round showrooms displaying nearly 2,000 lines in home décor, lifestyle, gift and apparel. Additionally, for the first time ever, a curated selection of antique vendors will be showcased at AmericasMart. To facilitate travel between both locations, IMC will provide a free, hourly shuttle between the two campuses on overlapping market days, Tuesday, Sept. 21 and Wednesday, Sept. 22.
Beyond exhibits, Fall Design Week and DISCOVER ADAC participants can draw inspiration from unique “Directions in Design” vignettes installed at both market centers. The two coordinated vignettes, which will be merchandised and curated by a leading Atlanta interior designer, will showcase the exclusive and complementary design resources available across both campuses.
As an added benefit, attendees will have access to virtual and in-person seminars and networking events with some of the top industry leaders in design. A full schedule of sessions will be available in the coming weeks at Americasmart.com/Year-Round/Calendar-of-Events and ADACatlanta.com/discover-adac/.
