Accent on Design Jury Accepts More than 30 Companies to Exhibit

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-The jury for the Accent on Design division of the New York International Gift Fair has accepted more than 30 additional companies to exhibit in the section at this summer's Gift Fair.

This grouping will bring the total number of exhibitors in Accent on Design to nearly 200, according to GLM, owner and manager of the Gift Fair. Among the newcomers are two regional design collections: JOIN: Design Seattle, which provides designers a forum to show work, get feedback and share resources; and the Object Design League, which promotes experimental and independent object design. The section will also present an expanded Accent on Japan, a consortium of independent Japanese exhibitors.

Accent on Design is scheduled to run from Aug. 15 through Aug. 19 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. The Gift Fair will run from Aug. 14 through Aug. 19 at the Javits Center and at Passenger Ship Terminal Piers 92 and 94.
