NY NowWHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-For this summer's edition. NY Now is adding a variety of market-related programming--including seminars, events and special promotions--to the Pier 94 portion of the show.

The show will also include daily "Importing 101" seminars.

In connection with the launch of Impulse at NY Now, a new event featuring about 100 suppliers of impulse and point-of-purchase specialty gifts and accessories, NY Now's owner and manager, Emerald Expositions, will present a limited-edition 2013 Gucci Fiat to a retailer.
