Casual furnishings and outdoor furniture brands are ready to do business in Atlanta with 100+ temporary exhibitors confirmed for the inaugural Casual Market Atlanta July 10 – 13, 2023, at AmericasMart Atlanta. Enthusiasm for the reinvigorated market and the opportunity to showcase more product to more buyers already has inspired a 50% expansion of exhibit space planned this summer’s debut buying event.
“The response to the Casual Market’s relocation from Chicago to Atlanta has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Dorothy Belshaw, International Market Centers (IMC) executive vice president, chief growth officer. “Established brands and innovative newcomers are tapping AmericasMart to showcase their full-spectrums of outdoor living product to top buyers in the casual furnishings industry and beyond.”
Casual Market Atlanta presents a compelling offering of 100+ casual furnishings and outdoor furniture temporary exhibitors in a purpose-built tradeshow space on Floors 6 and 7 of Building 1 at AmericasMart Atlanta. A full list of exhibitors is available at CasualMarketAtlanta.com/showroom-exhibitor-listing.

Co-location of the wholesale buying events provides a distinct and synergistic cross-category buying and selling opportunity. Casual Market Atlanta buyers have easy access to some 6,000 complementary furnishings, gift, lifestyle, seasonal, housewares and gourmet lines; and outdoor and casual brands can connect with tens of thousands of retailers from across the U.S. and around the world. A full list of Atlanta Market exhibitors is available at AtlantaMarket.com/exhibitor/exhibitor-directory.
