“ANDMORE is honored that our markets  have been recognized for growth in both number of exhibitors and overall square footage – both of which are key tradeshow metrics,” said Dorothy Belshaw, ANDMORE President. “In the gift, home and apparel industries these award-winning markets serve, temporary exhibits are recognized as a hub for discovery of both emerging innovators and industry-leading brands.  In Atlanta and Las Vegas, in particular, the tradeshow is an important complement to thousands of permanent showrooms that also comprise our markets.”
