AmericasMart, ADAC partner for design event in September 

AmericasMart Atlanta and the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center are collaborating for the fourth consecutive year to create the Southeast’s premier dual-venue design destination, Sept. 19-22. The two design-focused, overlapping markets will offer top-of-the-line product selections from leading home decor, lifestyle, furniture and rug brands. The Fall Market at AmericasMart is Sept. 19-21 and DISCOVER ADAC at ADAC is Sept. 20-22.


“Together, AmericasMart and ADAC create a design destination offering a full-package of resources, networking and education that allows retailers to easily source the product they need,” said Bob Maricich, chief executive officer of International Market Centers in a news release. “Between both locations, Atlanta will be the peak of design trends this September.”

All trade registrants for Fall Market and DISCOVER ADAC will have access to ADAC’s 65-plus high-design home decor, lifestyle and furniture showrooms in Buckhead and AmericasMart’s 400-plus, open-year-round showrooms displaying nearly 2,000 lines in home decor, lifestyle, gift and apparel in downtown Atlanta. To facilitate travel between the two locations, IMC will provide a free, hourly shuttle on the overlapping market days, Tuesday, Sept. 20 and Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Beyond showrooms, Fall Market and DISCOVER ADAC participants can draw inspiration from unique “Behind the Windows” vignettes installed at both venues. The two coordinated vignettes, which will be merchandised and curated by leading Atlanta interior designer Lia Shin of C+H Interiors, will showcase the exclusive and complementary design resources available across both campuses, the news release said.

Attendees also will have access to seminars and networking events with industry leaders in design. A full schedule of sessions will be available in the coming weeks at and

“What I love about our partnership with AmericasMart is that we have become a fall design destination for the Southeast,” said Katie Miner, ADAC general manager. “It’s a wonderful time for designers to shop both campuses and for design enthusiasts to have access to events, designers and more during that week. We’re a one-stop resource between both campuses to find everything. If you are in the business of design, this is the time to head to Atlanta.”

Fall Market runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 19-21. The three-day buying, educational and networking event for designers and retailers allows those in the design industry to come to one central, Southeast location to learn more about design in Lunch & Learn sessions and events in the new, state-of-the-art Designer Workspace, while shopping the biggest upcoming trends.

Once a year, DISCOVER ADAC connects a national audience of design authorities, enthusiasts and media to explore new perspectives and the future of the creative world. This year it will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 20-22. Experience the evolution of design with inspirational talks, book signings, product launches and more from design experts and luxury brands.
