7 W New York Readies for Market



NEW YORK-The 7 W New York showroom building will offer a number of amenities during the upcoming Gift & Home Textiles Market, Jan. 25-31.

First, the building is urging market visitors to “like,” “pin” or “tweet” about its vendor-tenants on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. 7 W will have a number of lobby displays highlighting the latest trends from the market from a number of vendors, which visitors are invited to comment about on the social-media sites.

The building has also designated Jan. 25 International Day, and is inviting retailers to focus on the showrooms of vendors that ship internationally on this day. Jan. 26 will be “Shop Local” Day, centering on vendors that manufacture in the United States. Jan. 28 will be a “late-night shopping extravaganza,” in which, beginning at 5 p.m., specials, events, treats, music and more will be available to buyers who wish to shop the building into the evening.

On Jan. 29 during the “rain or shine” event, the building will conduct a giveaway of 7 W shades while supplies last. From 2 to 3 p.m. on Jan. 30, attendees will be able to fill their complimentary 7 W water bottle, also while supplies last.

Throughout the market, 7 W will also provide complimentary transportation to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Passenger Ship Terminal Piers 92 and 94 for buyers who are also attending the New York International Gift Fair.
