Information about Atlanta's Summer International Market held last July 13-16, 2008 at the AmericasMart in Atlanta, Georgia is presented. Rug vendor companies showcase their innovative ideas during the semi-annual event but it is said to be generally slow because of the low attendance of the retailers. Austin Carley of Momeni Inc. and Alex Peykar of Nourison Inc. believe that the low attendance is due to the economy's condition.
