Sustainable and new to headline NY NOW

Sustainability and destination: new product displays to feature products from hundreds of exhibitors across the Winter 2017 Market

NY NOW, the Market for Home, Lifestyle + Gift, is set to take over the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in just a few weeks, and sustainable and new product introductions will once again make headlines with the return of NY NOW’s popular sustainability: design for a better world® and destination:new product displays.

More than 280 exhibiting companies will participate in the two displays, making them the most innovative and design-forward showcases to date!

The sustainability: design for a better world product display at the NY NOW winter 2017 market will showcase environmentally-conscious and socially-responsible products and manufacturers from around the world. The destination:new display will highlight exhibitors with new product introductions including launches exclusive to the winter market.

“The sustainability and destination:new product displays are just two of the many unique offerings that NY NOW provides to attendees, putting a well-deserved and global emphasis on topics that we’ve heard are of interest to attendees time and time again,” says Scott Kramer, Emerald Expositions Vice President and NY NOW Co-Show Director. 

“These displays provide a dedicated space to highlight and learn more about the market’s newest and most sustainable products, making for a one-of-a-kind NY NOW market experience.”
