WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.–The New York International Gift Fair has reached an exclusive agreement with WGSN, a style- and trend-forecasting service, which positions the Gift Fair as the sole U.S. home, gift and lifestyle market on the WGSN Advisory Forum.
The agreement marks the launch of WGSN-homebuildlife.com, a new trend-forecasting site and product-development tool that will focus on the needs of the global home and interiors industries. The new forum includes professionals from around the world who will share knowledge and insights on social issues such as environmental and human concerns, the state of home-related design and commerce, and future changes and trends. The Gift Fair and High Point Market are the only two trade shows represented among the forum’s 12 members.
In its partnership on this new forum, WGSN will provide insights on the home and interiors industries to Gift Fair exhibitors and attendees, both during the two markets each year and throughout the year.
