Blackstone Rolls Up AmericasMart in Atlanta to Expand in Display Room Mart Sector

Private Equity Giant, Which Acquired International Market Centers In 2015, is Purchasing Among its Main Mart Competitors

Blackstone-owned International Market Centers (IMC) will obtain its biggest rival in a move that will move ownership of more than 7 million square feet of showroom mart area from a company started by the late John Portman.

Prior to the purchase arrangement, IMC and AmericasMart had actually been fierce competitors in the mart service that hosts markets and exhibitions where merchants come to select products to offer in their stores and online. AmericasMart alone hosts 17 yearly markets and shows, consisting of the Atlanta International Present & & Home Furnishings Market and the Atlanta International Area Rug Market. Each year, more than 4,500 exhibitors and almost 200,000 attendees ply their sell the downtown Atlanta complex.

Blackstone Real Estate Partners and Blackstone Tactical Opportunities (Blackstone: NYSE: BX), in a collaboration with Fireside Investments, acquired IMC in 2017. The acquisition of AmericasMart shows the personal equity company’s continued confidence in Atlanta’s commercial property market, the company stated.

“Having grown up in Atlanta, I am well aware of the tremendous contributions the Portman household has made to the city and in developing AmericasMart into the leader it is today,” stated Tyler Henritze, head of U.S. Real Estate Acquisitions at Blackstone, in a declaration revealing the acquisition.

Henritze said Blackstone, which has actually invested $5 billion in other Atlanta realty residential or commercial properties given that 2012, will develop on Portman’s tradition “to even more purchase and enhance AmericasMart.”

Thanks To South Point The new video board at the South Point’s Arena and Equestrian Center is almost 3 times the size of the old one.

Those attending occasions at South Point’s Arena and Equestrian Center can now stare up at a brand-new video display system almost 3 times as large as the previous setup.

Daktronics, a leading provider of large-format LED video display screens and sports scoring systems, lags the four-sided video display system. The 13,797-pound display screen’s 4-millimeter line spacing is among the tightest LED resolutions of any center-hung video board in any arena in the nation, South Point authorities said in a press release. It changes the previous Daktronics center-hung technology installed in 2006.

Engineering Undergrads Display Latest Tech Advancements at Fall 2017 Senior Design Competition

WHAT

Students from the UNLV Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering put their undergraduate education to the test when they display year-long, commercially feasible tasks designed to solve daily difficulties at the Fall 2017 Fred and Harriet Cox Elder Design Competitors.

WHEN

Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017
8 a.m.– 12:30 p.m. and 2 – 5 p.m.

WHERE

Artemus W. Ham Auditorium, on the campus of UNLV (click for map)
Near Maryland Parkway and Home Grove Avenue

DETAILS

A capstone to every engineering trainee’s scholastic career at UNLV, the senior style task obstacles trainees to utilize whatever they have found out in their program to plan, design, create, and demonstrate a practical, real-world option to an engineering challenge. Each student chooses, plans, styles, and models an innovative, commercially feasible product and provides their idea to a panel of market judges.

More than 30 tasks will be on screen, including a pedestrian lighting system, a brand-new pallet style for storage facilities, a remote-controlled device that can spot IEDs, and a location-sharing app developed to encourage human interaction.

MEDIA

Interviews with participating trainees and College of Engineering agents are offered. Trainees will also perform product model presentations.

Project Examples
Pedestrian Lighting Guidance System

Pedestrian fatality rate is three times greater in the evening, with 70% of pedestrians killed in the nighttime. Headlights just let a driver see roughly 350 feet ahead. The Pedestrian Lighting Assistance System (PLGS) can help ease pedestrian deaths due to bad exposure in the evening. Utilizing pedestrian detection software application, the PLGS will instantly control a spotlight whenever somebody triggers it, with no problem on the pedestrian themselves, utilizing OpenCV libraries, microprocessors and cameras.

Marco Polo App

Current social media apps provide a virtual area where people can “satisfy” others, however really motivate less in person interactions. The Marco Polo App provides the capability for users to share their place by initiating contact within their list of good friends– “sending a Marco.” If the recipient accepts it, they “respond with a Polo,” then their GPS locations will be shown one another. The app provides a consensual and user regulated sharing of area and encourages users to remain physically and socially active by assisting in an easier method to fulfill up. The Marco Polo app’s objective is to enhance more human-to-human interaction within the age of innovation.

I.E.D. Rake

Because the early 2000s, 1,400 Americans have actually been eliminated and 13,000 injured by I.E.D. blasts. The Pentagon has invested more than $75 billion attempting to protect troops with armored automobiles and detection gadgets. The I.E.D. Rake is a remote controlled gadget, which takes the human operator, and their security, out of the equation. (Large mine detectors presently use a human operator.) In addition, with the large extension arms, the device does not have to be straight over a bomb, like currently utilized rovers, to find and detonate a mine.

OAR Pallet

The OAR Pallet prepares to change a dated wooden pallet that was presented in the 1930s and not improved upon since. Wooden pallets do not provide much functionality and can restrict attaining greater warehouse performances during truck loading and discharging. In contrast, the OAR Pallet will enhance the general mobility of pallets in a storage facility and minimize loading and discharging times by: using a coupling system to link several pallets together; using a multi-directional wheel arrangement for maneuverability; and having an operator-friendly mechanical braking system.

Blackstone To Acquire Display room Area Owner International Market Centers
