A Market Full of Options:
Temporary Exhibits + Showrooms

 

Exhibiting with Atlanta Apparel is a unique experience with a diverse setting that includes both temporary exhibits and permanent showrooms. Our buyers appreciate this variety and shop across our building, visiting customers with whom they’ve built relationships in both the temporaries and in showrooms. Our exhibitors, in turn, build long-term relationships with our leasing and sales teams through years of working together to produce successful shows. Our shows serve the largest concentration of independent retailers in the South and attract buyers from across the Northeast and Midwest. There’s no better way to reach Southeast customers than to exhibit with Atlanta Apparel.

With either a temporary or permanent option, exhibiting at Atlanta Apparel is the best way to reach the largest audience of southeast independent retailers.
