We won't be able to attend the AmericasMart Atlanta Winter 2021, but find us at the CanGift Virtual Show in February 2021! It's already time for the first trade show of 2021. The AmericasMart Atlanta winter market will take place with showrooms from 12.01.-19.01.2021 and temporaries from 13.01.-17.01.2021. As we are based in Canada, and the Coronavirus pandemic is still limiting the possibilities of travel, our showroom at the Atlanta Market will remain closed for this winter season. However, we highly miss the personal contact to our customers and will keep you updated on our upcoming events!
