Posted on March 31, 2010 by
NEW YORK-The upcoming Tabletop Market Week (April 13-16) will run in tandem with Printsource New York (April 13-14,) the market for surface and textile design.
Taking place on the 11th floor, this complementary show will be an added bonus for tabletop designers and product developers shopping the market.
Similarly, Printsource showgoers will be able to shop 7 W's suites showcasing their newest product introductions. Attendees to both shows will have access to events and lectures that inspire and inform--with a special focus on digital. Both shows will each honor (with business card) registration badges for added convenience.
Printsource New York, which boasts hundreds of unique collections by international studios and agents, will feature original and vintage prints and artwork appropriate for use in apparel, bed and bath, kitchen and tabletop, paper goods, home textiles and other surface & textiles design applications.
Nancy Alusick, 7 W Stylist, will take inspiration from four key print trends, courtesy of Printsource New York, to create tabletop vignettes illustrating easy home entertainment and dining. A melange of new products from 7 W tabletop suites will be cleverly arranged on unique fixtures & display units from 7 W store fixture showrooms.
The opening day keynote presentation will be Kathleen Cella, senior account manager of NPD, addressing various aspects of digital media's role in today's world, from online shopping and bridal registries to consumer purchase motivators and the evolving age factor.
Printsource New York will offer a comprehensive overview of fashion and home textile trends by the world's leading forecasting services.
