NY Now Begins on Saturday

NY_Now logoNEW YORK-The home furnishings industry heads to the Big Apple for tomorrow’s opening of NY Now, formerly known as the New York International Gift Fair.

The summer 2013 edition of NY Now takes place Aug. 17-21 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Passenger Ship Terminal Pier 94, featuring more than 2,800 exhibitors, 100,000 products, and 400 product categories showcased in four new market collections—Home, Lifestyle, Handmade and New!—and will introduce a new exhibit floor layout and extended show hours. Beginning this summer, the show hours have been extended—running 9 a.m.-7 p.m. on Sunday and Monday—allowing buyers additional time to source and shop the reorganized exhibit floor.

The third edition of Artisan Resource at NY Now runs Sunday, Aug. 18, through Tuesday, Aug 20, at Passenger Ship Terminal Pier 94. Artisan Resource connects U.S.-based importers with international producers and exporters.

Educational seminars and events, juried displays and after-hours activities will be held throughout the show. For complete information, visit http://www.nynow.com.
