Home Textiles Market Week enhanced by Seminars & Special Events
Nearly 500 bed, bath, linen and home fashion vendors will participate in Home Textiles Market Week in New York, January 28 - February 3, 2011, offering home buyers the largest collection of home textiles resources in the United States.
The semi-annual market for mid-to-high-end home textiles will be presented at four locations in Manhattan: NYIGF at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Passenger Ship Terminal Piers (92& 94), 230 Fifth Avenue and 7 W New York (7W 34th Street). Beyond exhibits, the week's activities also include a series of educational seminars, and “Only in New York” after-hours activities.
“No other market in the United States offers such a wide range of mid-to-high-end home fashions,” said Dorothy Belshaw, NYIGF director and GLM senior vice president. “Through the cooperation between the NYIGF and New York City's permanent showrooms, we can provide market-goers with a comprehensive sourcing and shopping opportunity, as well as some very unique after-hours experiences.”
