New GLM show fills out house and home week
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, October 20, 2003
A new gourmet housewares show from GLM will launch next fall along 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, speciality appliances (non-electric or electric), tabletop and decorative accessories.
Next fall's House to Home Market Week will run Oct. 8 to 11.
