The Atlanta Gift Show 2019

Jan 22, 2019

If you were wondering how many steps it takes a Licensing Agent to get through 2 days at the Atlanta Gift Show… the answer is more than 30,000! Thanks to our handy iPhones we tracked our “foot print” at the Gift Show this year. 

After a whirl wind of appointments, browsing new products, meeting new customers, a little fun and LOTS of new deals in the works our sales team was glad to head back to Vermont (even if the temperatures were super cold). We saw so many amazing products this year and were so excited with the amount of Art Licensing Artists we saw blasted throughout the show. 

The market was raving about new trends including, but not limited to: sloths, llamas, mermaids, camping and clean farm house. We were excited to hear this news as we already had so much great art to offer to suit these needs.  

The Atlanta Gift Show is always so exhilarating- so much to see under 1 roof (well, 3 roofs… but you know what mean)! We are looking forward to finalizing our follow up from the meetings and watching our meetings turn into contracts.

Atlanta Gift Show 2016

Jan 25, 2016

We are back from Atlanta and finally caught up on composing e-mails, making phone calls and writing new deals! It has been a really busy two weeks… thankfully our office is stocked up with lots of delicious Green Mountain Coffee :) 

We saw so many fabulous products at the gift show this year!  If you want to take a look at the products with our art on them, check out our Facebook photo album by clicking here.

We arrived to the show bright and early Thursday and Friday morning. We started looking for art before the show officially opened and continued until after the show closed. We were beyond excited because we had art on products in all 3 buildings on all sorts of products; including, but not limited to: wall décor, flags, floor mats, puzzles, pillows, cards and tabletop/dinnerware.

We had lots of meetings during those 2 days and showed over 100,000 images!  We were prepared with our iPads full of new (and old) art. Every single artist that we represent is available on our iPads. We also had themes pulled to make meetings go smoothly for our customers.

This year the market was buzzing about new trends. The most discussed trends were line art (coloring book art) and GOLD. Line art was everywhere from post cards to pillows and pretty much everything in between. Gold as an accent or typography is also seen on various products, especially on wall décor. If you are interested in seeing some of our line art or gold images, please contact us today!

The Pantone colors of the year (Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue) were also found throughout the show on multiple product categories.  Patterns and typography are still very trendy this year. Mixing patterns and typography is even more popular! 

The Atlanta Gift show is always a great show for us and this year did not disappoint us. After 2 very busy days of walking/talking/and taking photos we were ready to come home to the quiet state of Vermont. We are already looking forward to the gift show in 2017.

We are back from the Altanta Gift Show and could not be more excited!

Jan 14, 2013

ALI just got back from the Atlanta Gift show and what a show it was!

Syrena and Courtney spent 3 days walking the show, meeting with clients and checking out all the fantastic products being produced with artwork from many of our artists. We got a chance to see cards from various artists including, Pat Yuille, Lucie Bilodeau, Nancy Wernerbach, and John Golden. We were also able to see hooked rugs with artwork by both Stacie Flint and Cheryl Piperberg as well as fantastic dinnerware collections from Color Bakery. We also saw some lovely wall decor from our ALI Studio collection.

Have you heard about FiberOptic Wall Tapestries? Well, if you haven't yet, you will! Out artist, Nicky Boehme, was featured at one of the showrooms displaying these lit up tapestries. You'll be sure to see these tapestries around next holiday season in households and markets everywhere.

 

 

We had a great time meeting with all our clients!  We came back with positive feedback, contracts to write, and a wishlist of new art for our artists to produce. Check our website often to see all of the new art that we receive! Take a look at our facebook for more pictures from the show!
