Gift Shop Plus Summer 2021
Hot Finds By Debbie Eisele

Like the weather, these new product introductions are sizzling

In this year of unknowns, it is exciting to see new gift and home product lines launching. Vaccinations and the easing of travel restrictions have retailers more willing to make the trip to attend trade shows in person. And for those who aren’t traveling, digital marketplaces and virtual showrooms allow buyers to shop new products from their homes.

IN-PERSON EVENTS

In terms of in-person markets, first up is Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, followed by Atlanta Market, LA Mart, Minneapolis Mart, NY NOW and Las Vegas Market.

Atlanta Market’s summer 2021 edition indicates a post-pandemic rebound. “Buyers and sellers are preparing for a strong market as industry recovery continues and business approaches pre-pandemic levels,” said Bob Maricich, CEO for International Market Centers.

Las Vegas Market is positioned as the West Coast’s last major sourcing opportunity for 2021. “There’s an industry-wide need for product and Las Vegas Market is prepared to help meet that demand,” said Maricich. “April Market was an important first step towards business recovery for the western states, and we look forward to continued progress by connecting buyers and suppliers again this August.”

DIGITAL EVENTS

Digital offerings this summer include Juniper Market, Faire, Brandwise, SHOPPE ON and NY NOW Digital Market Week.

No matter how orders are placed this summer, there are many new and exciting products to discover. Here is a preview of some new introductions.
