New dates announced for the NSS 2019
Emerald Expositions, show organizers of the National Stationery Show, announced today that the 2019 event will change its date pattern. The NSS will be co-located with NY NOW at the Javits Center February 3 – 6, 2019. SURTEX will also switch to the new dates and remain in the same timeframe as the NSS.
“The market for stationery and greeting cards has changed and consolidated in recent years,” said Kelly P. Bristol, the NSS show director, “but there is an even greater appreciation for unique and innovative products. Co-locating with an event like NY NOW offers even greater exposure for our exhibitors and the opportunity for attending buyers to also shop stationery products, greeting cards and other related items.”
NY NOW attracts buyers and media from all 50 U.S. states and more than 60 countries worldwide seeking unique trend-forward products across the home, lifestyle and gift spectrum. Bristol noted that the new time frame gives buyers earlier access to new designs and products. One badge will allow attendees to access the NSS, NY NOW and SURTEX, North America’s premier exposition for the selling and licensing of original art and design.
A new feature highlighting Emerging Designers is also planned for the 2019 event. The NSS is the only North American event for the global stationery market and features greeting cards, custom invitations, giftwrap/ribbon, stationery, specialty party supplies, bridal accessories, customized products, writing instruments, paper crafting supplies, journals, calendars, lifestyle gifts and more.
