NYNowlogo3x2WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-More than 280 first-time exhibitors will be at the winter version of NY Now—a number that show organizers expect will continue to grow between now and when the show takes place Feb. 4-8 in New York City.

Among the companies exhibiting for the first time are Babysoy, manufacturer of layettes and baby gifts; the Elisabeth York bedding brand of C&F Enterprises; Fe Handbags, manufacturer of artisanal handbags; Lena Skadegard, maker of handcrafted jewelry; Norden, manufacturer of stoneware and ceramic products; Rayerbag Barcelona, a handbags manufacturer; and Sovaro, a manufacturer of tumblers and coolers.

“As a leading market that spotlights the latest industry trends, we are always so pleased to welcome companies that are exhibiting for the first time and we recognize that for some, this is not just their first NY NOW experience, but this is their first time ever participating in a market or trade show,” said Randi Mohr, NY Now show director and vice president of Emerald Expositions, which owns and manages the show.

In addition, NY Now will welcome several companies that are returning to exhibit after an absence. These include Fratelli Guzzini, manufacturer of kitchenware and tabletop products; Vietri, maker of handcrafted dinnerware and gifts; furniture manufacturer Tritter Feefer; Mastro Rafael, manufacturer of bedding, bath products and window treatments; Crocodile Creek, maker of lunch boxes, backpacks and puzzles; Lubin Paris, manufacturer of perfumes; and Slant Collections, manufacturer of drinkware, paper goods and stationery.
