Beginning with the Summer 2013 market, the Gourmet Housewares Show will merge into NY NOW, the Market for Home & Lifestyle, formerly the New York International Gift Show. Approximately 300 gourmet housewares products and specialty tabletop suppliers will present their wares together as part of a Tabletop + Gourmet Housewares section within the new NY NOW HOME collection.
“The new name hasn’t changed the quantity or quality of innovative new products and leading resources in gourmet products and upscale housewares,” said Christian Falkenberg, NY NOW director and GLM senior vp. “Plus, as part of NY NOW Home, both buyers and suppliers now have access to the New York market two times a year, in both winter and summer.”
Suppliers participating in Tabletop + Gourmet Housewares will showcase a full range of design-driven and functional cookware, bakeware, kitchen gadgets, kitchen textiles, bar and wine accessories, specialty food, cookbooks, storage/containers, picnic/barbecue accessories, and more. Participants include both new exhibitors and former Gourmet Housewares Show participants including: Core Bamboo, DKB, Enrico Products, Guzzini, HIC, Joseph Joseph, Nespresso, Oggi, Quench Products, Vac u Vin, Zak Designs and Zoku. Notable tabletop suppliers will include Deagourmet, Juliska, Just Slate, Kim Seybert, Kinto, Mariposa, Mary Jurek, Michael Aram, Reed & Barton, Simon Pearce, Vagabond and Vietri.
The NY NOW Home collection will include nearly 1,000 additional suppliers operating in complementary home product categories including furnishings, textiles and tabletop, as well as the juried Accent On Design segment. NY NOW Home will run from Sunday, August 18, through Wednesday, August 21, on Level 3 of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.
NY NOW’s four comprehensive collections– Home, Lifestyle, Handmade and New– will encompass 100,000 products in 400+ product categories, according to the company.
