Gift show briefs 

New York gift show offers mobile phone app
A new and improved “Wayfinder App” for mobile devices will provide a wide range of information to help attendees and exhibitors navigate the New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF) more efficiently. The free application is available for download through iTunes, the Android Market, BlackBerry App World, and http://search.nyigf.com/mobile.aspx. With an improved keyword search capability, the new NYIGF Wayfinder application allows users to pin-point search for exhibitors or products by name, product line, product category or description.  Real-time results include company names and booth locations, and all of the mobile data synchronizes with the online information available through the NYIGF website, www.nyigf.com.

Rug showrooms relocate at the Las Vegas Market
Rug showrooms on the eighth floor of Building C of the Las Vegas Market are moving to Building B, floors 3, 4 and 5, co-locating within the complementary home décor and adjacent rug showrooms in Building B, and providing a better overall connectivity to the existing spaces within that segment.

"With the move to Building B, these rug showrooms will experience a new synergy and excitement with the strong home décor segment at Las Vegas Market," said Robert Maricich, chief executive officer for International Market Centers, parent company of World Market Center Las Vegas. "Retailers will be equally pleased with the convenience of these new resources and the cross-buying opportunities it presents on these floors."

Re-merchandising the floor coverings segment to encompass home accents and decorative accessories and joining a majority of existing rug companies already existing in Building B ultimately creates a more convenient shopping experience for Las Vegas Market buyers. Rug companies in new locations at Las Vegas Market include Chandra, Natco/Central Oriental, Dynamic Rugs, Masland Carpet and Rugs, Rizzy Rugs and CMI (Colonial Mills, Inc.).
