NYIGF upgrades website with convenience-oriented features
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, July 10, 2009
White Plains, N.Y. – The New York International Gift Fair, or NYIGF, has upgraded its www.nyigf.comwebsite for more search options with three new features.
It is now possible to: generate personalized lists of compatible exhibiting companies; research information on show specials offered by exhibitors; and preview new products planned for the summer 2009 market, scheduled August 15 to 20 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Passenger Ship Terminal Pier 94.
"These additional tools provide buyers with valuable product information in advance of the market," said Dorothy Belshaw, NYIGF director. "Utilizing the time-saving functions on the NYIGF website is an increasingly integral part of the entire experience."
NYIGF attendees who provide, or update, information about their product interests as part of their registration profile will receive a real-time list of exhibitors with products matched specifically to their preferences. The list can be sorted by company name, division or booth number.
Buyers can obtain details about the show specials exhibitors are offering at the fair, such as free shipping for orders placed at the show, or orders reaching set totals. Currently, there are more than 100 show specials listed, with new additions daily.
Now buyers have access to information and images of new products that are set to debut at the NYIGF. There are hundreds of products currently listed, with more added daily, and each listing includes a link to exhibitor contact information.
The NYIGF said it decided to add the features based on growing use of the site in recent months.
