GLM Changes Launch Dates and Location for Summer Artisan Resource

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-GLM has changed the dates and location for the summer debut of Artisan Resource, a new section at the New York International Gift Fair.

The section will now be open from Aug. 19-21 at Pier 92 of the Passenger Ship Terminal in New York City. When GLM announced Artisan Resource during the January Gift Fair, it had set the dates for Aug. 20-22, and the section was to be located at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Artisan Resource will be an artisan production sourcing event for U.S.-based volume importers, direct-import retailers and wholesalers. It will present a curated collection of overseas artisan enterprises, offering handmade production resources and products, at export terms from country of origin. It will also offer programming for exhibitors and attendees, including seminars on topics such as importing basics, free-on-board pricing, customs, warehousing and distribution.
