NY Now reported that its winter show, held last month, had nearly 25,000 attendees. The winter 2016 market experienced a 6% growth in attendance compared to last winter’s edition, according to the show.
Of the market’s nearly 2,300 exhibitors, more than 150 companies returned to NY Now after a hiatus, and over 400 exhibitors brand new to the market hailed from 40 U.S. states and 42 countries.
“This year’s NY Now winter market continued its tradition of being a truly global stage for companies to share their new products with buyers and the industry,” said Randi Mohr, NY Now vp/co-director.
“In addition to the incredible products on display, attendees were presented with a number of rich New York-exclusive programs, from seminars to performances, to enhance the NY Now experience,” Mohr added.
NY Now’s summer market will take place August 20 to 24 at the Javits Convention Center.
