5 Tips to Get the Most Out of the Atlanta Market —

even in the midst of COVID19

 

Tip #1: PRACTICE SELF CARE + SAFETY

Wear a comfortable face mask.

Use hand sanitizer.

Wear sturdy shoes.

Pack water + snacks.

You’ll be doing a lot of walking, and you don’t want to end up with blisters. Wear supportive shoes and quality socks, toss a reusable water bottle in your backpack, tote, or purse, and bring simple snacks to keep you going.

Remember to practice social distancing!

 

Tip #2: MAKE A PLAN

You’ll want to visit your favorite vendors early on.Make an appointment to visit Kerusso’s beautiful NEW permanent space in Building 2 on the 13th Floor, space 1319. We’ll do giveaways daily in the showroom and Kerusso has an awesome SHOW SPECIAL!

Tip #3: MAP OUT A PATH

Once you know which vendors are at the top of your list, devise a sensible path through each building to hit them all. Seasoned attendees often begin with the spacious permanent showrooms such as Gib Carson in Building 2.

There is no right or wrong way to approach this marketplace, but planning your journey in advance will save you time and trouble flitting from one floor or building to another and back again if you missed a favorite supplier.

 

Tip #4: CONSIDER HOLIDAY NEEDS

Thanksgiving and Christmas are around the corner, and studies show shoppers are beginning to stock up for Christmas. The August Atlanta Gift Show is an awesome opportunity to stock up on unique inventory for the busiest shopping season of the year.In fact,Kerusso’s NEW Fall 2020 Collection is launching at this show!

 

Tip #5: NETWORK. NETWORK. NETWORK.

Whether you are looking for a keen apparel supplier, seeking merchandising ideas, or hoping to solve business challenges, marketplace events are one of the best places to network with suppliers and fellow owner/operators in the trenches.. Walking away with insight and fresh ideas for your business adds value to your trip.
