First Time Attendees

One Location. Tens of Thousands of Products. This your go to Market!

Summer 2017 was my first time attending a NY NOW show, and the experience couldn’t have been any better! I am a fragrance, bath & body buyer, and this show has the best-curated offering of brands out of any show I’ve ever been to. Each brand had a unique story, with beautiful packaging, and I was able to leave the show with multiple new partnerships. I will definitely be attending the Winter show
