Apply to exhibit amongst a group UK makers in the Handmade Designer Maker section of NY NOW, a renowned international selling fair.
NY NOW is a four-day wholesale/ trade event held twice annually in New York. In February 2019, Craft Scotland will be participating in the show, taking a group of UK-based makers to New York to exhibit and sell their work to international trade buyers.
Craft Scotland is now an accredited Trade Challenge Partner (TCP) of the Department for International Trade (DIT). Through this partnership, we will take a group of makers to NY NOW within the Handmade Designer Maker section of the show. This part of the fair showcases around 350 exhibitors.
In a first for Craft Scotland, as part of our national partnership with DIT, we are inviting applications from makers who are based throughout the UK.
NY NOW has been established for 30+ years and is the leading market for contemporary design across home, lifestyle, handmade and gift products. It will be open from Sunday 3 to Wednesday 6 February 2019.
Craft Scotland will take twelve makers to the show and has secured twelve Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) grants of £2,000 for each successful maker (providing they meet the eligibility criteria). Each maker will have their own space at the show which will be part of a larger Craft Scotland presence.
This opportunity is suitable for those who produce affordable, high-quality craft and are wholesale ready. We welcome applications from talented makers at all stages of their career, from emerging to established. This is a great opportunity for makers wishing to wholesale their work to an international audience.
