NYIGF to welcome some 400 newcomers to the summer market

Apr '09
Access to more than 400 new gift, home and lifestyle suppliers, coupled with an unparalleled breadth and depth of sophisticated and fashion-forward resources, will draw savvy buyers to the 157th semi-annual edition of the New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF), Saturday, August 15, through Thursday, August 20, at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Passenger Ship Terminal Pier 94. A comprehensive schedule of seminars and industry functions, as well as “only in New York” after-hours activities, will add value to the show experience for an anticipated 30,000 New York Market participants.

“NYIGF draws influence and inspiration from New York City, the world's epicenter of design and retail,” said Dorothy Belshaw, NYIGF director and GLM senior vice president. “It has never been more affordable to attend NYIGF, and our summer offerings – an extensive selection of new suppliers, access to principles of leading manufacturers and unparalleled style and sophistication of resources – make it a must-attend market.”

NYIGF will welcome some 400 newcomers to the summer market, with these fresh new resources located throughout the Fair's divisions and locations. According to Belshaw, “Current economic conditions have led some of our returning exhibitors to downsize their exhibit space, creating an opportunity for new companies to enter the market.” All newcomers will be identified in the directory and through onsite signage as “New York's Newest,” in order to facilitate sourcing and shopping for buyers.

One key newcomer is Spain's Instituto de Promoción Exterior de Castilla-La, a government-sponsored pavilion of Spanish manufacturers and distributors. With this addition, NYIGF's General Gift division now will feature a total of eight international pavilions – Created in France/Ateliers D'art De France (France); LMI-Leipziger Messe International GmbH (Germany); Israel Export Institute (Israel); Italian Trade Commission (Italy); JETRO New York (Japan); Instituto de Promoción Exterior de Castilla-La (Spain); British Jewellery & Giftware Exports (UK); and Africa Now! (a collective of West African nations).

In total, 35 countries will be represented in the summer market. Other international contingents throughout the Fair include: LMI-Leipziger Messe International GmbH (Germany), PROMEXICO (Mexico), American Chamber of Commerce from Peru (Peru) and British Crafts Council (UK) in Handmade; and Quebec Government Office (Canada), Created in France/Ateliers D'art De France (France) and British Design Group (UK) in Accent on Design.

EX•TRACTS also welcomes several innovative and emerging personal care and wellness suppliers with a 30% expansion of floor space for the summer market. Among newcomers to the division's 100 exhibiting companies are: Diana B., Dayna Decker, Jimmy Jane and Trapp Candles; and Jaqua returning to the market following a brief absence. In connection with the division's growth, returning exhibitors Seda France, Sohum Cosmetics, Soular Therapy and Voluspa all are expanding their exhibit space.
