NY Now will add extra day in February
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, July 12, 2013
White Plains, NY - NY Now, formerly known as the New York International Gift Fair, will run for an extra day during the winter 2014 session, which will take place Feb. 1-6 in New York at the Javits Convention Center and both Passenger Ship Terminal Piers 92 and 94.
Hotel reservations will open early because of the market's overlap with Super Bowl, which takes place Feb. 2. Travel Planners, Inc., the official hotel agency for the show, will accept reservations for winter 2014 prior to the opening of the summer 2013 market, which begins Aug. 17. Market participants can pre-register online at http://tphousing.com/ec.html to receive email notification when winter 2014 reservations can be made.
"This marketplace is a pivotal event for thousands of retailers and suppliers, so the extension to a six-day market is a win-win for all," said Christian Falkenberg, NY Now director and senior vice president of show organizer GLM. "Two weekend shopping days are still available for retailers who can only come on Saturday and Sunday this coming winter, plus an extra weekday is guaranteed for those who want to come after Super Bowl weekend."
