AmericasMart plays “matchmaker” for companies that make American-made products, and the retailers that want to sell them

Posted by Anonymous on 01/18/2012

Last week, Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) Executive Director Scott Paul attended AmericasMart, one of the largest home furnishing trade shows in the world, held in Atlanta, Georgia.  As part of the unveiling of AmericasMart’s new Made in America segment, Paul moderated a panel titled “Made in America: All You Need to Know.”

AmericasMart featured the Made in America segment as part of this month’s Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market to help boost the U.S. economy and to introduce retailers to companies whose products are American-made:

By coming to the January AmericasMart Market, retailers from all 50 states and more than 90 countries [were]  exposed to the products of at least 75 vendors – all of whom are ready to make sell their products and have them distributed to major department stores, regional stores as well as sole proprietary shops.”
