New GLM show to complete house & home week

New York — A new gourmet housewares show from George Little Management will launch next fall to coincide with the New York Home Textiles Show, ExTracts and Surtex Gallery — and the four shows will be presented collectively as the House to Home Market Week.

"There are seismic shifts in the housewares calendar created by the International Housewares Association's move to March and by the changing composition of Messe Frankfurt's August market," said Alan Steel, GLM's evp.

"Following our decision to keep our Gourmet Products Show in San Francisco each May, we received a great deal of feedback from retailers and manufacturers that an additional show, on the East Coast in the fall, would fill a current void in the housewares industry calendar."

The first annual New York Gourmet Housewares Show is expected to feature some 400 exhibitors of cookware, kitchen gadgets, cutlery, small electrics, specialty appliances (non-electric or electric), tabletop, and decorative accessories.

The House to Home Market Week in 2004 will run Oct. 8 to 11.
