Drawing 35,000 attendees from all 50 states and 80+ countries, NY NOW is produced twice annually by GLM Shows and is open to the trade only. Held in January and August in New York City, the Fair hosts 2,800 exhibiting companies showcasing the very best lines across the home, lifestyle and gift spectrum.
The summer 2013 market will introduce four new comprehensive market collections and a dynamic new exhibit floor layout, positioning New York as the defining marketplace for fashion-forward, design-driven home, gift and lifestyle resources. The show’s transformation also includes new branding, as NYIGF becomes “NY NOW, the Market for Home & Lifestyle.”
The show’s reorganization into four collections - Home, Lifestyle, Handmade and New - and the repositioning of related resources not only reinforces the depth and breadth of resources in the New York market, but also better reflects the way retailers are shopping and sourcing today.
NY NOW HOME presents a comprehensive collection of 1,200 home furnishings, home textiles, decorative accessories, tabletop and gourmet housewares. A juried cross-category collection of contemporary design resources will continue to be presented under the renowned Accent on Design® banner and within NY NOW Home.
NY NOW LIFESTYLE will showcase a broad spectrum of merchandise categories, including giftware, personal care, stationery, fashion accessories and children’s products.
