Atlanta Trade Show 20116

January 20, 2016

This past week, Tina and Laurie traveled to Atlanta for their yearly trip to the AmeriasMart trade show. We’ve been getting plenty of photos and ideas from them – and wanted to share them with you. Here’s a look at their busy day from start to finish:

7:30AM – Busy commute from the hotel just outside of the city.

The trade show takes over three huge, separate buildings which are connected by walking bridges.

Inside this particular building, there are 14 floors of showrooms. The elevators are in the middle of this photo, with escalators on either side.

They also came across some inspiring display ideas:

Giant Nutcrackers!

And of course, there were plenty of displays using the Pantone Colors of the Year. Check out this one with these pink and white paper flowers:

Of course they got to explore lots of new lines of products:

7:30 PM: At the end of the day, they got back in line for the shuttle to the parking area, and then drove back to the hotel:

Fortunately, they wrapped it all up with a delicious dinner!

Now that Laurie and Tina are back, we’ve got several shipments of new merchandise coming in. We can’t wait for you to see our new products!
