GLM: Gourmet Resources Return to Winter Gift Fair
October 7, 2011,
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-Show owner and organizer GLM said it will redefine the Tabletop & Housewares division of the New York International Gift Fair next February to showcase a concentration of gourmet housewares companies.
Brands such as Aladdin, Joseph Joseph, Mastrad and Oggi, which participated in the inaugural Gourmet Housewares Show at NYIGF this past summer, have committed to exhibit at the Fair.
These returning housewares vendors will coalesce with current Tabletop & Housewares exhibitors to create "a comprehensive, buyer-friendly collection of some 100 gourmet resources within the division," GLM said. The division will also welcome the addition of several companies relocating from the show's General Gift division. They include Andrea by Sadek, Claude Dozorme Cutlery and Tissage Moutet.
Other changes include the return after a hiatus of Intrada, Paper Products Design, Lush Life and Mottahedeh and Company. In addition, several exhibitors will expand their space for the winter 2012 market, including Abbiamo Tutto, Bodrum, Europe 2 You, Knobstoppers, Mariposa, Michael Aram and Prouna USA/Kiyasa Co.
This winter, Tabletop & Housewares will feature a new show floor location and layout to accommodate construction in the 3A and 3B Halls of the Javits Center. The show takes place Jan. 29 through Feb. 2, 2012, at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
