New York Gift and Home Textiles Market Week at 7W New York

New York, NY – 7 W New York will heat things up this summer during the New York Gift & Home Textiles Market Week (August 14-20). 7 W’s all-star line up of showrooms will be ready for attendees with brand new offerings and events. In addition, 7 W plans on enhancing this year’s market by embracing all aspects of the gift and home textiles industry including fine arts – a category that greatly influences trends in the design industry. This reflects 7 W’s well-rounded approach to the market, which is to serve as a go-to resource for interior designers, buyers and press through permanent showrooms and a growing list of fine art shows and exhibits.

According to Chris Collins, vice president and general manager, 7 W New York “Given the high level of optimism that we have seen with all of our markets so far this year, we expect our summer market to very successful and a turning point in our industry as so many buyers and sellers have reinvented themselves and are now prepared for growth in our new economy. We have expanded our offerings, will unveil several new showrooms and will treat our attendees to many new amenities for this very important market. We expect a renewed level of enthusiasm and a very positive business experience for all here at 7 West.”

Highlights of this market will include exclusive In-Suite Events, a special International Buyers Day, a “Best of the Best” lobby display and the celebratory launch of an Antiques & Interiors Design Gallery on the 8th Floor. This expansive new gallery will boast a mélange of distinctive, one of a kind decorative art pieces and gift ideas.

7 W will also showcase a Pop-Up Retail Store Gallery conceived by the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Junior Class. Shopping 7 W, picking product trends, deciding on a NY location, determining product assortments and designing alluring merchandising strategies, retailers can shop the gallery to find an edited version of what is hot, new and trendy from the future leaders of our industry.

Also on the calendar is 7 W’s Hawaiian Luau, kicking off a special night of suite-to-suite shopping; an exclusive viewing at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in honor of Accent on Design’s 25th Anniversary (which 7 W will co-sponsor) and Gifts & Decorative Accessories’ 58th Annual Retailer Excellence Awards, honoring the best and brightest in the industry, as well as a special acknowledgement of Bobbie Gottlieb, Two’s Company CEO who will receive the Gift for Life Industry Achievement Award at the ceremony.

In addition, the 34th Street Café will be open as always for complimentary buyers’ lunches (Noon–2 p.m) on Friday, Saturday, Tuesday & Wednesday, with Saturday’s lunch, courtesy of GUND®, Suite 704.
