Registration now open for summer NY NOW
Registration for the NY NOW summer 2016 market has officially opened for retailers, buyers, and members of the press. The summer NY NOW, the Market for Home, Lifestyle + Gift, will take place Aug. 20-24, 2016, and will once again fill the Javits Convention Center in New York City with three comprehensive collections. Approximately 25,000 attendees from all 50 states and 80-plus countries worldwide will have the opportunity to explore everything that NY NOW has to offer and take advantage of this unrivaled buying and sourcing experience.
Three Comprehensive Collections Under One Roof. As the industry’s most expansive marketplace event, NY NOW will feature an exciting lineup of new and returning exhibitors across the HOME, LIFESTYLE and HANDMADE Collections. Located all under one roof, the market’s layout is easy-to-navigate, ensuring that attendees will be able to efficiently find what they’re looking for among 100,000-plus products from the more than 2,400-plus premier established and emerging brands onsite.
Educational Programming and “Only in New York” Events. In addition to a bustling market floor, NY NOW also offers the opportunity for attendees to participate in a wide range of educational programming and industry events. The jam-packed agenda offers a variety of seminars – each hosted by a leading trade or consumer publication, or an industry association — that address a range of compelling topics including color/design trends, sustainability, digital media and retail strategies. After hours, NY NOW attendees will enjoy “Only in New York” activities — including the popular “A Night On Broadway” outing — and special offers that will enable them to make the most of their time in the Big Apple.
NY NOW’s easy-to-use online registration system is available anytime, anywhere, and allows Market participants to access links to hotel and travel reservations. Credentialed attendees and members of the press will have access to NY NOW’s Market Planner, which will enable them to create a personalized planner for their Market experience. Using the tool, they can search NY NOW’s online exhibitor directory, view product images, videos and information, access press releases and other press materials, contact exhibitors, and even schedule onsite appointments. Qualified members of the trade may register and upload credentials online for free through Aug. 9. After that, members of the trade may still register online for free through Aug. 19, however, required credentials must be presented on-site to complete the registration process.
