Gift Fair Debuts Wayfinder App for Mobile Devices

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-The New York International Gift Fair has launched a new Wayfinder application for mobile devices, designed to help show attendees and exhibitors.

The Wayfinder offers an improved keyword-search capability, allowing users to search for exhibitors and products by name, product line, product category or description. Other features include the show's complete seminar schedule, special events, shuttle-bus schedule and floor plan. It also connects attendees' online "walking lists," which can be created before the show using the exhibitor and product-search tools on NYIGF.com.

The application is compatible with Android, iPhone and BlackBerry devices.
