Atlanta Apparel is readying for June market, taking place at AmericasMart Atlanta from June 6-9. And this time around, it’s set to be one of the most amenity-filled and experience-driven buying events to date, thanks to a festival theme, aptly called JuneFest.
“Atlanta Apparel is combining the thrill of sourcing with the fun of festival season at our June apparel market,” Caron Stover, International Market Centers (IMC) senior vice president, apparel, said. “With expanded amenities and events alongside top-of-the-line permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits, Atlanta Apparel will be the Southeast’s premier Summer sourcing destination.”
This June, Atlanta Apparel will showcase 350+ permanent showrooms and 400+ temporary exhibitors, 39 of which are brand new to market, presenting top general apparel brands and emphasizing three popular categories: young contemporary, accessories, and game day across five floors.
As part of the three-day JuneFest, Atlanta Apparel has expanded on its hallmark events, amenities, adding interactive giveaways, happy hours, trend installations, and more. Things kick off with daily activities and amenities: the morning cappuccino station and grab-and-go breakfast starting at 8:30AM on Tuesday, and you can rest assured there’ll be a live DJ and an Oddi Specialty Bar Card each day too serving mixed drinks after lunch. In terms of what else to pencil into your agenda, the Get Pierced! with Bara Boheme party is not to be missed (from Wednesday through Friday in the Atrium).
