NY Now is inviting winter 2018 exhibitors to apply now for its sustainability: design for a better world and destination: new display programs as well as the show’s “Best New Product” Awards.
The sustainability display is a curated showcase of global gift and home industry suppliers whose products or production processes are eco-friendly, or companies whose business practices are socially responsible, philanthropic or fair-trade oriented. Participation is free and open to all NY Now exhibitors, but companies must apply and be accepted. Additionally, all products within the display are automatically eligible for the “Eco Choice” Awards program. One winner will be selected by an independent panel of judges, in each of three categories. The application deadline is November 17.
The destination: new product display highlights new designs from around the market. Exhibitors showcasing products that are new to the marketplace as of September 1, 2017, are invited to apply. Among the display participants, any product that is making its debut exclusively at NY Now will automatically be considered for its “Best Exclusive Launch” Award. The application deadline is also November 17.
The “Best New Product” Awards celebrate the offerings from exhibitors across the market and recognizes one standout product in each of the 10 sections. All products entered are eligible to be considered for the “Best New Product” Award in their category, identified by the section of the NY Now market in which they are exhibiting. One winner in each section will be selected by an independent panel of judges during the market and winners will be announced during NY Now. Exhibitors showcasing products that are new to the marketplace as of September 1, 2017, are invited to apply. Among the ten section winners, one grand winner will be selected as the recipient of the “Best in Market” Award. The application deadline is December 15.
