Czech Glass Presented at the NY NOW Fair in New York

Three Czech companies participated at the August 2017 edition of the NY NOW, one of the biggest fairs focused on household products in the US. The fair took place in Javits Center in New York where the Czech glass industry was represented by companies Artěl Glass, Blažek Glass and Glassor.

Three Czech companies presented their products to possible clients, distributors and sales representatives. Artěl presented their multicolor glass products in perfectly designed booth that underlined the uniqueness of their product lines, Blažek Glass, on the other hand, presented selection of their products that stress quality of hand-made cut and polished glass as well as their famous glass nail files. The products of the third Czech company Glassor represented long tradition of Czech glass Christmas decorations.

NY NOW fair is top platform to maintain and broaden trade activities in the US and, in a way, this particular fair sets new US trends within the tabletop sector. Czech applied design and tabletop products, especially those made of glass and crystal, are largely praised within the US. Although several Czech glass producing companies have established their activities in the US already, the fame of Czech crystal definitely leaves space for further Czech companies focusing on high-end hand-made glass products to enter the competitive, yet rewarding US market.
