If you’ve been to the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market (AmericasMart) in the past, you know what a big deal it is. AmericasMart can boast in being the nation’s largest single product collection. There is everything from gifts to apparel to home and rugs. Bags & Bows is excited to announce we will be exhibiting at this tradeshow July 10-14. Be sure to come visit us at our booth (#600, Building 3, Floor 4) to see all our latest and trendiest collections.
As an industry leader in the retail packaging space, Bags & Bows is always searching for opportunities to create new, innovative ways to present packaging options to our customers that inspire and transform their products, stores, and lives.
Having just celebrated our 20 year anniversary in April, we are excited to announce this trend will continue as Bags & Bows rolls out a strategic partnership with a designer collection of new products. This partnership will be officially launched in July to coincide with in Atlanta, Georgia. Given that AmericasMart is one of the most prestigious packaging tradeshows in the country, it seems fitting we launch this new partnership at the July show, since this is where the story began just shy of a year ago.
This past week, Bags & Bows Online exhibited at AmericasMart. It was my first time attending this large tradeshow and I learned a lot while I was there. I heard resounding success stories, but also saw challenges other booths faced. As I gathered ideas on how to successfully market your tradeshow booth, it became clear that many of these tactics can be slightly tweaked to create a successful store strategy.
AmericasMart consists of 3 buildings, each with many floors of permanent and temporary tradeshow booths. It feels like a gigantic shopping center with everything at cost (AKA my own personal heaven). But given the magnitude of AmericasMart, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. I was very lucky to have veteran tour guides to help me with the ins and outs of the show (Thanks Carrie and Kristen!). Here’s what I learned in order to properly prepare for AmericasMart.
Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market (AmericasMart) is one of the largest wholesale home and gift shows in the world with hundreds of thousands of buyers and sellers converging in Atlanta, January 9-13. Bags & Bows, a Deluxe company, is excited to be in attendance again this year and invites you to stop by our booth (#600, Building 3, Floor 4) to gab about 2014 trends!
