NY Now "Made in the USA" Display to Spotlight 314 Products
July 25, 2014,
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-A record 314 products will be showcased in NY Now's "Made in the USA" exhibit when the trade show takes place next month.
Curated by designer Paul Thompson, the exhibit will feature a cross-category assortment of handmade and factory produced products. Merchandise in the display will represent all four NY Now collections. Nearly 20 percent of NY Now's total 2,800 exhibitors have identified themselves as suppliers of American made products, according to a statement from the trade show.
As an extension of this, NY Now partnered with the Craft Retailers' Association for Tomorrow in 2013, to develop specific criteria to identify and credential handmade U.S. products. Companies that meet the criteria will have "Handmade in USA" logos visible in their NY Now booths.
