Next January’s New York International Gift Fair is to add a concentration of gourmet housewares supplier exhibitors to its Tabletop & Housewares sector.
Organiser GLM says the move follows the successful co-location in August this year of the Gourmet Housewares Show with the summer edition of NYIGF.
Brands such as Joseph Joseph, Aladdin and Mastrad which exhibited at the August show have now signed up for the January gift fair. NYIGF director and GLM senior vice president Dorothy Belshaw says they “realise the benefits of participating in NYIGF and the value of expanding their reach into gift and home channels”.
The Tabletop & Housewares sector at NYIGF – which runs from January 28 to February 2 at the Jacob K Javits Convention Center – will host some 300 exhibitors.
