This week, we are thrilled to welcome Amy Loewenberg, Senior Relations Manager for NY NOW, SF NOW & American Handcrafted. Amy considers herself to be a champion for people, for product and for paving new lanes for mutually beneficial and treasured relationships that celebrate the love for what we do and why we do it. This is her past, her present and her future.
Her passion for product grew exponentially when she returned to NYC and was purchasing for an iconic NYC paper and gift store known as Kate’s Paperie to a 130-location mini department store known as Blue Tulip to foster the first ever purchasing program for the non-profit Housing Works. She drank the Kool-Aid! Whether she was buying greeting cards and invitations, homewares, tabletop, or textiles, she was enamored with everything from paper to cement and the impact they made on her business.
It was a no brainer for her to move into her role for NY NOW, a market she has been attending for decades. Her high-level and firsthand experience helps her to not just be a resource for all who attend, but it allows her to highlight our remarkable community.
Michelle & Amy talk trade shows, challenges and exciting changes that will make for an even greater experience for attendees!
This week’s episode sponsored by Fines Lines Company, a west coast wholesale rep agency with showrooms in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Seattle representing over 50 fabulous gift, fashion + home lines.
