AmericasMart Atlanta Announces January Awards Program

The Area Rug industry’s most celebrated event, America’s Magnificent Carpets Awards (AMCA), honoring the best of the best in the area rug category and creative achievement, will be presented at the Atlanta International Area Rug Market featuring the National Oriental Rug Show (NORS), on Friday, January 13, 2012 in the outstanding Oceans Ballroom at the Georgia Aquarium. NORS is co-sponsored with the ORIA.

The 2012 event features the introduction of two new area rug categories to round out and update the already competitive categories. The two new categories are Indoor/Outdoor and Licensee. Also, for the first time in the award’s history, AmericasMart will reward top Rug & Home retailers with a prestigious award for excellence with The Retailer of the Year Award.

All submitted rugs will be on display in the Museum of Introductions gallery located on Floor 4 of AmericasMart Building 1. The gallery offers our guests an experience to touch and view your new product introductions in an upscale setting. Rugs will be properly labeled to assist guests in their buying. The gallery opens Friday, January 13, 2012 and closes at noon on Sunday, January 15, 2012.
