In the absence of a live, in-person CanGift Fall event at the Toronto Gift & Home Market this year, the Canadian Gift Association has introduced plans for their CanGift Virtual Market, coming September 14-17, 2020. Through a new online platform, Atlantic Canadian Craft Producers will have the opportunity to connect with qualified retail buyers who are looking to source new products by taking part in the CraftLab virtual listing.
PLEASE NOTE: The NY NOW event which had been postponed to October 20-22, 2020, has now been officially CANCELLED. Interested vendors, please read the official statement from NY NOW: https://nynow.com/press/press-releases/market-announcement/
The details that follow outline the original project to bring Atlantic craft producers to NY NOW. As of now, the NY NOW Winter 2021 event is still scheduled to go forward. Craft Alliance will publish information on funding opportunities to attend the Winter market when details become available.
