New York Gift Fair Refines, Reorganizes Tabletop Division
June 3, 2011,
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-The Tabletop division of the New York International Gift Fair has been refined and reorganized for this summer's edition of the show at New York's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, said show owner and manager GLM. Enhancements for the division include a purer concentration of specialty tabletop resources, a new layout of the exhibit hall and an influx of new and returning suppliers to the marketplace.
"The breadth and depth of our specialty tabletop resources will increase dramatically this August," said Dorothy Belshaw, NYIGF director and GLM senior vice president. "The introduction of The Gourmet Housewares Show to NYIGF this summer allows us to better categorize tabletop and housewares resources, and construction in the Javits Center's 3A and 3B Halls provides an opportunity to create a dynamic new floor plan for this division."
A number of leading tabletop brands will return to NYIGF following a hiatus from the market. Dartington Crystal, a U.K. manufacturer of glass and crystal barware, returns following a decade-long absence from the New York Market; and Royal Copenhagen and TAG-Trade Associates Group both return after a five-year absence from the Fair. CE Corey also will return after a brief absence.
In addition, Belleek Pottery Ltd., Make International Ltd., Mottahedeh & Company and Romanov Collection all will exhibit for the first time at NYIGF.
The Gift Fair takes place August 14-18, 2011.
