After spending the past few weeks on the road (with stops at Atlanta's AmericasMart and the Dallas Market, and an upcoming LA Mart exhibit), our team is soon headed to exhibit at NY NOW. Our first Wholesale exhibit at NY NOW was last August (see the recap here), and we're excited to be back for the winter market.
Our team will be on-site featuring a curated selection of products across several categories; each created by independent Makers. We're looking forward to connecting with Main Street Retailers from across the country and sharing the stories behind our products with them. Attendees will be able to browse and shop The Grommet Wholesale from the showroom floor of NY NOW™.
The Grommet Wholesale Exhibit January 31 - February 4, 2015
Booth NC1 (in the north concourse lobby)
The Grommet Co-Founder and Chief Discovery Officer, Joanne Domeniconi will speak during Seminar: Modern-Day Matchmaking Redux: Tech Tools for 21st Century Makers Sunday, February 1, 12:00 Noon, Javits Center, 1A02-03
Moderated by Susan Szenasy, publisher and editor of METROPLOIS, this seminar features several other big players of the Maker Movement.
Evan Cohen is the self-described “handy man” of IndieGogo’s operation, helping educate and empower Makers through crowdfunding. Matthew Burnett heads Maker’s Row, providing independents Makers with a manufacturing network across the United States. And Ashley Etling helped establish Red Clay Design, connecting Makers and retailers with award-winning designers.
Together they form a Maker super-team of sorts and they’ll be sitting together in one room on Super Bowl Sunday, no less. There, you can learn how the Maker Movement is being elevated from the people leading the charge.
