Nine New Sourcing Opportunities added in 2023

November 17, 2022 – International Market Centers (IMC) expands its calendar in 2023 to 35 apparel, furniture, gift, home décor and lifestyle markets presented in Atlanta; High Point, NC; Las Vegas; and New York.

“New acquisitions and partnerships expanded IMC’s impact in 2022, and we are proud to present an even more robust calendar of markets and buying opportunities in 2023,” said Bob Maricich, IMC CEO. “With the addition of nine markets, coast-to-coast, there will be 35 opportunities to source across all IMC categories.”

Notably, in the gift and home industry in 2022, IMC acquired Shoppe Object, a home and lifestyle market produced semi-annually in New York City, and launched Spring and Fall mid-season buying events at World Market Center Las Vegas. New events in the bridal and social occasion industry included a 2022 launch of VOW Bridal & Formal Las Vegas, a west coast version of its successful semi-annual bridal market in Atlanta, with plans to debut a new Encore Buying Event for social occasion in Atlanta in September 2023.

Beginning in 2023, a new partnership with the International Casual Furnishings Association (ICFA) will launch the Atlanta Casual Market at AmericasMart Atlanta in July and a new Outdoor Design Week in September. Casual Market Atlanta will fill four floors of AmericasMart’s Building 1 with permanent, purpose-built showrooms for nearly 50 leading outdoor living brands, and space on Floor 7 for some 90+ temporary outdoor living brands.

IMC owns and operates four campuses across three cities: AmericasMart Atlanta and the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC) in Atlanta; World Market Center Las Vegas and the EXPO at World Market Center Las Vegas in Las Vegas; and 17 properties in High Point, North Carolina: 300 E. Green St.; 300 S.
