Largest NYIGF Since 2009 Exceeds Expectations

Defying conservative industry expectations, strong retailer attendance at the New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF) — the largest since 2009 — resulted in robust booth traffic and sales activity at the 163rd semi-annual NYIGF, August 18-22, at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Passenger Ship Terminal's Piers 92 & 94.

"Expectations for the summer market not only have been met, but also have been exceeded," said Christian Falkenberg, NYIGF director and GLM vice president. "Exhibitors are reporting solid and consistent order writing through the entire show." 

Giftware News was there and here's just a sample of what we saw.
