Artisan Resource Doubles Exhibitor Count at Summer Show

Artisan ResourceWHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-One hundred companies, more than double the exhibitor count from the winter show, participated in the Artisan Resource show last month, according to a statement by GLM, the show's owner and manager.

Those companies represented 25 countries and three continents, GLM said. Country pavilions from Cambodia, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Panama, Peru, South Africa, Tunisia and Vietnam were among the exhibitors. The show also welcomed attendees from companies such as ABC Carpet & Home, Anthropologie, Canvas, Frontgate, HomeGoods, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, National Gallery, National Geographic, Urban Outfitters, Viva Terra and West Elm.

Among the highlights, GLM said, was the expansion of Artisan Resource's Market Incubator Program, created through a partnership between the Alliance for Artisan Enterprise and the show. The program invited 11 artisan enterprises to exhibit in the Artisan Partners@Aspen booth for the first of three consecutive shows, and provided assistance in show preparation and onsite show operations.

Artisan Resource ran from Aug. 18-20 at Passenger Ship Terminal Pier 94 in New York City, concurrent with GLM's NY Now show. The winter 2014 edition of the show is scheduled for Feb. 2-4 at the Passenger Ship Terminal Piers 92 and 94, also concurrent with the winter NY Now, which is slated for Feb. 1-6 at the piers and the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, also in New York City.

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
