Artisan Resource to be first of-its-kind market

Apr '14
Increased global representation and an expanded exhibit floor will be among highlights of the summer 2014 edition of Artisan Resource, a first of-its-kind market offering U.S.-based volume importers, direct import retailers and wholesalers the opportunity to meet with international artisanal producers. 
 
The fifth semi-annual Artisan Resource will run Saturday, August 16, through Tuesday, August 19, at New York City’s Passenger Ship Terminal Pier 94, in conjunction with NY NOW, The Market for Home + Lifestyle (formerly NYIGF).
 
“Artisan Resource has more than doubled in size since its inception in 2012, with exhibitors now representing nearly 30 countries, and the summer show will welcome a record nine government-sponsored pavilions,” said Allison Garafalo, Artisan Resource sales manager. “We’ve signed on more than 100 exhibiting companies so far, presenting a broad spectrum of products and artisanal production capabilities for decorative accessories, personal accessories and apparel, home textiles, tableware and more.”
 
To date, companies participating in Artisan Resource represent 27 countries, with several more expected to confirm before the show opens in August. Countries currently represented include: Afghanistan, Bolivia, Cambodia, Cameroon, Colombia, Ecuador, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Kyrgyz Republic, Mexico, Nepal,  Pakistan, Panama, Palestine, Peru, Philippines, South Africa, Tunisia, Uganda, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
 
Nine countries will bring multiple companies to Artisan Resource as part of government-sponsored pavilions. Two of these— Trade and Investment Kwazulu-Natal from South Africa and ProMexico—are first-time participants in the Show; and the seven returning pavilions are: Cambodia High Value Silk; Consulate General of Indonesia; Ecuador Trade Office; Hanoi Trade Promotion Centre; Ministry of Trade and Industry (Panama); PROMPERU; and Office National De L'artisant Tunisien (Tunisia).
 
The successful Market Incubator Pavilion program – created in 2013 through a partnership between GLM, HAND/EYE Fund and ByHand Consulting – to facilitate the participation of emerging artisan enterprises will return to the Show with 15 companies, including four first-time participants: ABAN-A Ban Against Neglect (personal accessories made in Ghana); Fait la force (cross-category products handmade in Haiti); Indigo (home décor and personal accessories made in Guatemala); and Sulafa Center (Embroidery products made in Palestine).
 
Artisan Resource is a semi-annual tradeshow which runs concurrently with NY NOW, offering a production-sourcing venue for overseas artisan enterprises to showcase their products and production capabilities, at export terms, from theircountry of origin.
