Gift Fair Debuts Tools for Attendees

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.--The New York International Gift Fair will provide a preshow webinar, onsite orientations, a New Buyer Handbook and 24/7 access to its exhibitor search and Online Catalog Gallery to aid buyers attending the show.

Titled "NYIGF Orientation--Get Ready, Get Set, Go!," the webinar will introduce buyers to the Gift Fair's four locations, 10 divisions and 400 product categories, and will take place on Aug. 4 from 2-2:45 p.m. The orientation seminars will take place daily at the show, and will help buyers navigate NYIGF, use the directory and make most of their time at market.

The New Buyer Handbook--published by GLM::dmg events, part of GLM, owner and manager of the show--is a downloadable resource guide to planning a buying trip, creating a credit form, shopping a trade show, writing an order and following up with vendors after market. The exhibitor search and Online Catalog Gallery provide information on the exhibitors, lines and products retailers will find at the show.

NYIGF is scheduled for Aug. 13-18 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Passenger Ship Terminal Piers 92 and 94, all in New York City.
