Surge of American-Made Resources Showcased in NY NOW "Made in the USA" Exhibit

Reflecting growth in the demand and availability of American-made home and lifestyle resources, a record 314 products will be showcased in the "Made in the USA" product display at NY NOW, the Market for Home+ Lifestyle (formerly NYIGF), August 16-20, 2014 at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. 

"We experienced a surge of product applications for the 'Made in the USA' exhibit this summer – nearly double last summer's total," said Christian Falkenberg, NY NOW director and senior vice president. "American-made is a cornerstone of the craft community, and there is remarkable growth in this category, as mainstream manufacturers have begun to understand, and embrace, the advantages of domestic production." 

Products accepted for the display represent all four NY NOW collections, and nearly 20% of NY NOW's more than 2,800 exhibitors have identified themselves as suppliers of American-made products. Special "Made in USA" logos will appear on booth signs and in relevant company listings in the NY NOW Market directory.
