WHITE PLAINS, NY. – July 9, 2018 – NY NOW®, the Market for Home, Lifestyle + Gift, knows how important it is to stay on-trend in the retail space and gain an edge against the competition. That’s why when buyers and shop owners attend the Market, they will always find new brands, styles, and the freshest assortment of products across hundreds of categories. There is truly something for everyone, and at every price point. During the upcoming summer 2018 market, starting Sunday, August 12, 2018 through Wednesday, August 15, 2018 in New York City, buyers will have the opportunity to uncover products that won’t be seen anywhere else this season, from brands that can only be found at the Market.
“On-trend and design-forward products are the cornerstone of NY NOW. Twice a year, we consistently deliver a dynamic collection of products and brands that are not just eye-catching, but also generate sales,” said Randi Mohr, Vice President and NY NOW Director. “Buyers, designers, media and more repeatedly tell us how NY NOW is a trend-setting experience that they don’t get anywhere else. For buyers looking to bring the freshest designs to drive consumers to their store – and keep them coming back time and again – NY NOW is a must attend.”
NY NOW is home to more than 2,300+ exhibiting brands and is the place for buyers to discover the next best-selling items for their store. On-trend design-driven products will span hundreds of diverse product categories and price points. From home décor and furnishings, tabletop and housewares, gifts, stationery, and textiles, as well as personal care and accessories for men, women and children, and more – NY NOW is the #1 place for buyers to find unique products that drive sales and make their businesses stand out from the competition!
Consistently offering new products and keeping styles fresh is an essential way for buyers and shop owners to give their customers a shopping experience they’ll remember… and one they’ll want to return to.
