Pool to Start New York Edition

The trade show, a showcase for art and design-driven brands, will make its debut in New York this summer, joining its sister show, Project.

The Pool trade show, a showcase for art and design-driven brands, will make its debut in New York this summer, joining its sister show, Project at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, from July 20 to July 22.

“The vibrant energy and sense of community that Pool brings to the Vegas marketplace during MAGIC is what I wanted to channel in New York,” said Project president Tommy Fazio. “There’s nothing like it in on the East Coast so positioning the show at the Javits Center will offer new ways to engage retailers and have them explore, shop and discover brands.”

The show will feature men’s and dual-gender labels and will include some vintage apparel and accessories. It will also offer a cash-and-carry section which will allow retailers and other manufacturers to purchase goods immediately.
