Sold out Shoppe Object returns to New York City in August

The Summer 2023 edition of Shoppe Object, New York’s premier trade event for home and gift items, will take place Aug. 13-15 at Manhattan’s Pier 36. The sold-out biannual event will reportedly deliver a major uptick in international brands coming from 24 countries and will showcase a strategic expansion of products for the home.

Among the show’s returning highlights are the Black Lives Matter Action Initiative, which offers subsidized booth space for Black-owned brands, a NOURISH section, featuring small-batch beauty and gourmet, and the show’s selected Artist of the Season, who inspires the season’s visual energy and showcases their work at market.

A recent recipient of a Trade Show Executive Gold Award for its fast growth in both square footage and exhibitors, Shoppe Object has been sold out since April. Presenting more than 500 brands in a maximized footprint, the event now fills two adjacent spaces including a new Cityside Pavilion, first debuted at the February 2023 show.

This August, more than 20% of the exhibit floor will feature exhibitors based outside the U.S., representing diverse product categories from tabletop to home textiles to stationery.

“We’ve been building toward international expansion for quite some time,” said Shoppe Object’s founder and show director Jesse James. “Over the past two years, our small team has been traveling around the globe, knocking on doors and visiting showrooms, engaged in conversation with stellar brands as we patiently waited for the post-pandemic clouds to shift, freeing up the opportunity for more of these companies to travel to the U.S. and display their wares again. We’re honored and thrilled that these folks have selected Shoppe Object to mark their return or debut.”
