NEW YORK–Attendance in the showrooms at the 230 Fifth Ave. showroom building during the New York Home Fashions Market were triple the number at the spring market last year, according to a statement from the showroom building.
The statement said vendors in the showrooms reported “solid orders from set appointments as well as walk-ins.” Attendees were treated to special amenities provided by the building, including free massages, complimentary breakfast and lunch in the Antique Café in the lobby, and giveaways.
Market week also featured the new 230 lounge, which included high-definition television sets, free Wi-Fi and trade magazines.
