design for a better world® Display

of global gift and home industry suppliers whose products or production
processes are eco-friendly, or companies whose business practices are socially
responsible, philanthropic or fair-trade oriented. Participation is free and open
to all NY NOW exhibitors, but companies must apply and be accepted.
Additionally, all products within the display are automatically eligible for
the “Eco Choice” Awards program. One winner will be selected by an independent
panel of judges in each of three categories: Most Innovative, Most Sensitive
Use of Materials, and Most Sellable. Only products accepted to the display are
eligible for the “Eco Choice” Awards program.

The application deadline for the sustainability: design for a better world®
display is Friday, May 25, 2018.
 

destination:new Display

The exciting destination:new product display highlights new designs from around the market,
making it a great way for attendees to easily see some of the leading and
emerging trends in one place. Exhibitors showcasing products that are new to
the marketplace as of March 1, 2018 are invited to apply for this opportunity.
There is no cost to apply or participate, though a single entry can only represent
one item, or one set of items packaged together for retail sale. The product
choices are subject to the review and discretion of the display designer. Among
the display participants, any product that is making its debut exclusively at
