The gift fair will include 13 international pavilions, with the largest number of pavilions (eight) to be housed in the General Gift division. The August show will also feature the return of the Italian Trade Commission and the Instituto de Promocíon Exterior de Castilla-La Mancha of Spain, both of which had been absent from the show for some time. South Korea’s Chungchung Bukdo Trade Group will make its debut at the August gift fair as well. In addition, West Africa Trade Hub/Africa Now!, which represents several African nations, will relocate from the piers at the Passenger Ship Terminal to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center at the show.
Other Gift Fair divisions—including Accent on Design, Handmade and Tabletop & Housewares—will showcase exhibitors from abroad as well.
The New York International Gift Fair is scheduled to run from Saturday, Aug. 15, to Thursday, Aug. 20, at the Javits Center and Pier 94 of the Passenger Ship Terminal in New York.
