NYNOW: Summer

NYNOW is a comprehensive market for gift, home, lifestyle and handmade products. The biannual market attracts over 35,000 buyers and includes sections for both “Handmade” and “Artisan Resource” products.

“Handmade” encompasses tabletop, ceramics, textiles, home décor, jewelry, apparel, and more. The Global Design program presents 150 global artisan businesses with a focus on good design, traditional craftsmanship, and community building through global artisan workshops.

“Artisan Resource” connects overseas artisan enterprises with U.S.–based importers, retailers, wholesalers, and designers. Exhibitors are experienced in exporting and are selected by their commitment to design innovation, cultural preservation, social enterprise and sustainability. Alliance member ByHand Consulting is a key advisor to Artisan Resource, recruiting new exhibitors, and conducting special training seminars for exhibitors and buyers.

Apply to exhibit at the Summer 2016 show here, and find points of contact from Artisan Resource and ByHand Consulting in the Alliance member directory.
