AmericasMart LIVE will have a third celebrity speaker on stage during the July 10-16 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market.
Acclaimed lifestyle expert Martha Stewart will take the stage on July 11 as part of AmericasMart’s full lineup of events for the summer market. In addition to Stewart, the Main Stage in Building 3 is headlined by business mogul Bethenny Frankel and musician, author, chef and product designer Trisha Yearwood, delivering a rare opportunity for marketgoers to be inspired by stories and strategies from a trifecta of forces in entertainment, design and business.
The July 2018 staging builds on the successful launch of LIVE programming last year when AmericasMart transformed its summer market experience with a new show aesthetic, linking product sourcing and selling, digital engagement and high-profile thought leader interaction.
Additionally, the 2018 ICON Honors now takes place as part of AmericasMart LIVE. In an exclusive presentation, Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post and founder and CEO of Thrive Global, imprints a new mark of contemporary cultural thought leadership upon ICON Honors, which from its founding has championed the role of independent business in the global economy.
