“For anyone in the design community looking to expand their audience and meet new buyers, NY NOW is the place to be,” said Randi Mohr, Group Show Director, NY NOW and Vice President, Emerald Expositions. “Each market is a can’t-miss opportunity for artisans, designers and more to grow their business by forging new relationships with potential customers.”
