New York NowWHITE PLAINS, NY. –  NY NOW, the Market for Home, Lifestyle + Gift, is now accepting applications for its semi-annual product displays that will be showcased at the upcoming summer market. As the industry’s most expansive marketplace, NY NOW will continue to spotlight the newest creations to the industry as well as those that are environmentally-conscious through its sustainability: design for a better world® and destination:new product displays. These displays are the ideal place for buyers to source products from specially curated collections.

“We know how important it is for buyers to not only source the newest and most on-trend products, but also to provide their customers with eco-friendly and sustainable options as well,” said Randi Mohr, NY NOW Show Director and Vice President, Emerald Expositions. “These two curated displays are incredibly impactful and really showcase the innovative designs that our exhibitors continue to create and we are so proud that we can highlight these products for buyers, all under one roof.”

Sustainability: design for a better world

The sustainability: design for a better world product display is curated and installed by Ilene Shaw of Shaw & Co! Productions. It features environmentally-conscious and socially-responsible products and producers from around the world. The exhibit will spotlight global home and lifestyle suppliers, products, production processes and business practices that are eco-friendly and socially responsible. All exhibitors that are part of the sustainability display will also be featured in NY NOW’s sustainability literature for market attendees.
