This AMC isn't a theater or a television network, but it likes to put on a good show. AMC owns and manages the AmericasMart Atlanta trade show center, one of the largest such facilities in the world. The firm also organizes and runs about 15 wholesale markets every year and a handful of regular markets -- including an apparel market and a gift products market. AmericasMart Atlanta consists of four buildings and more than 3,500 booths that house permanent showroom space, exhibit halls, convention space, and meeting rooms. AmericasMart Atlanta is focused on bringing retailers and wholesalers together. It was established in 1957 by architect John Portman.
Despite a downturn in the economy that began in 2008, AMC opened its Building 2 West Wing in early 2009. The company pointed to a desire to make its business more efficient for long-term growth. – less
