Its return to Atlanta under AmericasMart’s sponsorship follows an absence of several years. The collaboration is the first of its kind and is structured to create reciprocal benefits for IDS members and the AmericasMart home and design exhibitor community, according to AmericasMart Home Vice President Jenny Heinzen York.

Heinzen York will help integrate IDS programming and services into AmericasMart’s Market and open year-round operations with a primary focus on its January and July international markets and Fall Design Week. For its official debut, IDS will be featured in new AmericasMart LIVE programming, launching at The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market in July.
