NYC Mayor cites economic benefit of Home Textiles Market Weeks

Jan '10
An official Mayoral Proclamation has been issued by New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, declaring “Home Textiles Market Week” in connection with Home Textiles Market Week in New York, January 29-February 4, and August 13-19, 2010. The semi-annual market for mid-to-high-end home textiles is produced cooperatively each winter and summer by the New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF), 230 Fifth Avenue and 7 W New York.

“We're delighted with this official recognition of Home Textiles Market Week as a robust driver of economic benefit to both New York City and to the home fashions industry,” said Dorothy Belshaw, NYIGF director and GLM senior vice president. “With comprehensive product offerings, educational programming and after-hours events, the market is a great boon to the industry, and to the economic vitality of the City.”

Bloomberg cited the economic benefit and integrity of the market, as well as the efficient partnership of the three market entities, in bestowing the Proclamation. Specific factors included: the market's unique positioning as the nation's largest collection of home textiles products; the evolution of industry business-to-business distribution channels which make New York City an essential destination; and the efficiencies created by a successful partnership between a temporary show and permanent showrooms.

New York Home Textiles Market Week offers buyers access to more than 600 better bed, bath, linen and home products suppliers at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, Passenger Ship Terminal Pier 94, 230 Fifth Avenue and 7 West 34th Street. Products represented include bed and bath fashions, table linens, kitchen textiles, towels, decorative accessories, area rugs, window treatments and decorative fabrics.

The winter 2010 dates for Home Textiles Market Week are Friday, January 29, through Thursday, February 4; and the summer 2010 dates for Home Textiles Market Week are Friday, August 13, through Thursday, August 19.

This winter, 7 W New York opens on Friday, January 29; and NYIGF and 230 Fifth Avenue open on Saturday, January 30. All market week locations run through Thursday, February 4.
