NEW YORK -- The National Association of Display Industries 104/Visual Marketing & Store Design Show will be held May 14-17 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, here.
The show was previously held at the Pier 92 exhibition space on the Hudson River, but has changed venues to take advantage of traffic at the National Stationery Show, International Contemporary Furniture Fair and Surtex, a show of surface design and textiles, held concurrently at the Javits Center. The four shows are organized by George Little Management.
The Planning and Visual Educational Partnership will present two seminars during the 104th semiannual show. John Farnum, creative director of environmental design for the Nike Image division of Nike Corp., will discuss "Niketown -- Retailing Beyond the Transaction," on May 15. Peter Glen, a retail consultant and author, will address "Creating the Future," on May 16. Each will be held from 8:30 to 10 a.m.
Additionally, Visual New York, which is a group of 13 prominent visual merchandising companies, will have a special pavilion with a collaborative display at the NADI/VMSD show. This will be the first time a group this size has exhibited in a joint display.
Traditionally, local design firms have hosted show attendees in their showrooms during the trade event, without taking space at the exposition hall.
