“There’s no better time than February for buyers to discover new and emerging trends,” said Randi Mohr, Vice President and NY NOW Co-Director. “With thousands of new products debuting at the winter market, NY NOW gives retailers an opportunity to zero in on the products and trends with the most sell-through potential as they re-stock their stores for the Spring.”
Thousands of Products on Display: NY NOW ensured that attendees were able to find exactly what they were looking for among the more than 2,400+ exhibitors including thousands of premier established and emerging brands that were onsite showcasing a robust selection of tens of thousands of on-trend products in hundreds of categories. Typically, more than two-thirds of exhibitors launched new products exclusively at NY NOW, providing attendees with an endless amount of innovation across the market’s three comprehensive Collections. Each market, NY NOW also spotlighted the international community and this winter was no exception with exhibitors from around the world highlighting products in categories including: gifts, glassware, home décor and furnishings, stationery, textiles and beyond!
“So many of our exhibitors attend the market and tell us afterwards what an amazing experience it was and how they had the opportunity to reach new buyers and expand their brand’s presence both domestically and internationally,” said Scott Kramer, Vice President and NY NOW Co-Director. “Each year, we look forward to hosting new exhibitors as well as those that are returning, and to shine a spotlight on the industry’s latest and greatest trends.”
Seminars and Events: To provide attendees with new insights on the industry and invigorate them to succeed, the NY NOW seminar program offered a jam-packed agenda featuring dozens of sessions for anyone looking to expand their knowledge or advance their career or business. NY NOW’s full range of educational programming was led by industry experts including representatives from industry associations, leading trade and consumer publications and more.
