Twice per year, the N.Y. Home Textiles Market takes place in two venues: NY NOW at the Javits Convention Center and in showrooms at 230 Fifth Avenue. The Summer 2018 edition takes place Sunday, Aug. 12 through Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2018.
NY NOW features a new date pattern for the Summer 2018 market to offer greater convenience for buyers and exhibitors. NY NOW at the Javits Convention Center in New York City opens at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 12 and closes at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 15 (one hour later than previous markets).

For the first time, NY NOW is offering a special Trend Talk series with insights from experts on the latest retail, design and merchandising trends. Sessions are free and located on the Market floor. There will also be special book signings, photo opportunities and Q&A discussions.
In addition, NY NOW also offers educational seminars (fee charged) on a range of topics, such as: “Importing 101: Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Importing But Were Afraid To Ask,” “Efficiently Increase Productivity To Drive Sales,” “Email Marketing: Getting Sales Through The Inbox,” “Retail Realities: 10 Must Tips To Survive & Thrive In Today’s Competitive Retail Market,” “Successful Selling In Today’s Experience Economy,” “The Future Of Fair Trade,” “Retail & Tech: 8 Technologies You Need To Know About,” and “Buyers’ Behaviors Have Changed: Is Your Staff Keeping Up?”
