WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-The New York International Gift Fair’s new Artisanal Resource division has received confirmations from 62 exhibitors representing 18 countries thus far.
According to a statement from GLM, the Gift Fair’s owner and manager, artisanal craft producers that have reserved exhibit space are coming from Asia, Africa, Central America, North America, South America and the Pacific Islands. Artisanal Resource was launched by the Gift Fair to provide a production-sourcing venue for artisanal vendors that are targeting the U.S. home-furnishings market.
The new division will also offer a series of seminars for exhibitors and attendees. Topics to be covered at these sessions include importing issues, U.S. business practices and gift and home-industry market trends.
