I'll be at NY NOW this August moderating the Cash-In on the Cachet of “Made in the U.S.A” panel. I'm excited to be a presenter at the show with the hope of meeting those whom I've come to know through USA Love List, as well as new made in USA brands we can share with our readers.
NY NOW (formerly New York International Gift Show) will be organized into four broad market collections – HOME, LIFESTYLE, HANDMADE, and NEW! Each of these collections is comprehensive and well-edited. Careful screening and categorization create the broadest and best collection of home, lifestyle, and gift resources.
- 4 Market Collections
- 2,800 exhibiting companies
- 100,000 lines in 400 categories
- 2 venues (Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Pier 94)
Here are all the details for the seminar I'll be leading:
Saturday August 17, 12:00 Noon – 1:30PM, Javits Center, 1A02-03There’s a growing appetite for American-made goods. Whether hand-crafted or commercially-produced, the “Made in the U.S.A.” label increasingly conveys both prestige and patriotic appeal. Join Jill Homiak, of USA Love List and a panel of American-made sourcing and selling specialists for an exploration of authentication and certification, as well as marketing and brand positioning that will allow you to capitalize on this growing consumer preference. Participants include Marcie Gabor of Made in USA Brand, Melissa McGrath of Navy Blue Home and Gifts, and Heather Lawless of American Craft Week.
