NY Now Named NYC's Top Trade Show by BizBash

NY NowWHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-BizBash, a resource hub for the event and meeting industry, has ranked NY Now as New York City's top trade show, as part of the company's "New York's Top 100" list.

The list ranks the meetings, parties and industry gatherings that have the most impact on New York City. NY Now was chosen the number one event in the trade-show and convention category, which includes the New York International Auto Show, ComiCon and annual trade shows such as Retail's Big Show and the American International Toy Fair. In creating the list, BizBash considers an event's economic impact, buzz, innovation and its prominence in the communities it intends to serve.

NY Now encompasses more than 2,800 exhibitors and hosts more than 33,000 attendees from all 50 states and more than 80 countries around the world.

Christian Falkenberg, the show's director and senior vice president of show owner and manager GLM, said, "The market--formerly known as NYIGF (the New York International Gift Fair)--has long been ranked among the exposition industry's largest events nationwide, and it's great to extend our recognition to include excellence among New York City-specific activities."
