New York, NY (January 6, 2022) – The New York Gift Show – NY NOW® announced today strict guidelines in its health and safety protocols for its Winter Market at the Javits Center in New York City. With the health, safety, and support of its community of small businesses across home, design, accessories and more in mind, NY NOW is pleased to report that the Winter Market is on track to safely welcome buyers, customers, partners, and employees on February 6-9, 2022.

In accordance with guidance from New York State, the New York City Department of Health & Hygiene and World Health Organization, NY NOW has implemented additional health and safety measures to ensure the safest possible environment for attendees to effectively conduct business.

Furthering its commitment to creating a safe, comfortable, and informative eventmeg experience, NY NOW will have an increased number of health + safety ambassadors throughout the venue to ensure guidelines are being followed and provide masks to guests who may need one. All attendees including staff members, exhibitors, customers, buyers, and partners will be required to show proof of vaccination via a CDC Vaccination Card or approved app at the entrances prior to receiving a badge and must always wear a mask once inside the Javits Center.

NY NOW held a safe and successful show this past Summer 2021 at the Javits Center, NYC which is among one of the safest venues in the country. The Javits Center has achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) accreditation, meaning it follows the highest standards for cleaning and sanitization. Hospital-grade High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are located throughout the venue, which improves filtration and allows for the entire volume of air in the venue to be exchanged five times a day. See more details here about current health protocols.

“We understand how important the NY NOW tradeshow is to the health of our small business community of retailers and exhibitors,”. said Karalynn Sprouse, EVP, NY NOW. “With an enhanced staff onsite, we are confident that the show can safely return in person this February. We’ve seen the demand for an in-person show by way of registrations and have already exceeded the total number of exhibitors from our NY NOW Summer 2021 Market. We know our community depends on NY NOW to bring them together safely to conduct business and we are committed to making this a safe and successful event for everyone.”
