Trade Opportunity: Apply to Attend Shoppe Object 2024

Prosper Portland A&O is seeking up to 5 Portland-based consumer goods companies to be part of a shared booth at Shoppe Object, August 4-6, 2024 in New York City.

The pride of New York’s Market Week, highlighting nothing but the very best in home and gift, Shoppe Object takes place biannually on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Now with an expanded show floor across two neighboring locations – Skylight at Essex Crossing and Pier 36 – Shoppe Object can be easily entered at either venue with shuttles running every 10 minutes the walkable distance between. This groundbreaking trade show continues to set the standard for the modern market.

Prosper Portland will have a shared booth space at this trade show to provide local, emerging apparel, accessories, and non-food consumer goods brands an affordable opportunity to gain brand exposure and build new wholesale opportunities. In addition to booth space, Prosper Portland will provide marketing and logistics support. Participants benefit from the community, collaboration and peer support provided by the curated booth.
