To further develop export markets for Atlantic Canadian craft producers, Craft Alliance will support companies to participate in the NY NOW Digital Market in August 2021. The project will involve export-ready craft producers from Atlantic Canada looking to expand their sales to the United States. NY NOW is a wholesale trade show produced by Emerald Expositions and held twice a year in New York. This will be the third digital event held by the organizers, and will be held in conjunction with an in-person trade show at the Javits Centre, NYC.
Craft Alliance will support at least 5 Atlantic based-craft producers to exhibit at the NY NOW Digital Market based in New York, NY, from August 5-13 2021. We are recruiting export ready, production-oriented craft producers from the region to exhibit in this digital showcase. Deadline to apply is July 9; this project must have minimum 5 accepted companies to go ahead. Please contact Bernard (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm your interest; the funding will be confirmed once the project meets its minimum requirement for participating exhibitors.
This project is funded through the ACOA – Business Development Program (BDP) which supports exhibitors for 75% of digital booth fees. Exhibitors can also receive support for 50% of expenses for NY NOW-provided marketing opportunities. Exhibitors must be accepted by NY NOW before their funding can be confirmed. Participants must complete a detailed Producer Profile on our site and two follow-up surveys after the trade show is complete.
Exhibitor fees for the event are variable. Find out more about NY NOW and apply to exhibit here: https://nynow.com/exhibitors/exhibit-inquire/
