Furniture World News on

AmericasMart Atlanta announced the launch of a new website – www.americasmart.com. The new site is the industry’s premier online resource for buyers and exhibitors with proprietary content as well as business and educational resources. It features improved navigation, dynamic content showcasing the vibrancy of AmericasMart through video and photography and exclusive online tools designed to optimize the Market experience for users.
 
“We have an ongoing mission to provide the ultimate Market experience for our buyers and exhibitors,” says Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., president and chief operating officer of AmericasMart. “That includes advancing their businesses by providing leading resources and services. Our new website incorporates a wealth of innovative tools to help plan Market visits and access all the assets of the world’s global market.

“As a business partner, buyers and exhibitors need to be able to connect with our Market center 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We want that connection to be as easy and productive as possible. The new website offers options to connect from any place, any time through online and mobile access. It’s another way we can create value for all our customers.”

Hallmarks of the site renovation include:

  • Simplified, intuitive navigation allows users to access a wealth of information from anywhere on the site, while improved search capability makes it easy to quickly find specific information. Dedicated, easy access makes it simple to explore the world’s largest collection of product in concise, organized pages.
      
  • The all new Buyer’s Resource Center is an exclusive suite of online tools designed exclusively for AmericasMart retailers to use before, during and after Markets. It includes a First Time to Market section for new buyers as well as access to educational presentations, industry news and trend information and the premier publication in the industry, AmericasMart Magazine.
          
  • The MyMarket! Plan tool helps buyers optimize their time at Market by creating a personal agenda. Buyers can book travel, add seminars and events and compile custom lists of preferred exhibitors, complete with locations.
        
  • As the world’s global Market, pertinent buyer and exhibitor information is available in six languages - Spanish, French, German, Italian, Chinese and Japanese.
       
  • It’s easy to access, easy to view and easy to share content from anyplace on the site with prominent links to AmericasMart’s social media channels.

“The new americasmart.com is another step in fulfilling our commitment to be a proactive partner with our exhibitors and buyers,” says Mike Gay, senior vice president of Marketing for AmericasMart. “As our businesses grow and change, the site will continually evolve as well. It’s our mission to provide first-class resources as part of an overall superior Market experience – americasmart.com supports that goal.”
