THOUGHTFUL OF A WEARY INDUSTRY, A BUYING EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER
New York City, September 10, 2013 --- The era of the cozy, upper-tier, juried press/trade event ended with a strategic move to a colossal venue. Once upon a time in the 80s and 90s, many of us witnessed the original, juried, intimate hotel shows first-hand ---hands-on. Today, the principles used by those legendary NY shows appear to have been re-adapted, but few if any come close to reproducing the infinitely manageable size, juried global roster, privacy, amenities, and deluxe hotel setting, which had been their hallmarks. T H E N T I C A U does, with a few idiosyncrasies and directions, philosophy, and raison d’être of its own.
