As Seen Around Javits

So here we are, day 3 of setup, and I have one thing to say…I hope you brought your umbrella! (Told you it would be a good thing to pack!)

Now if you’ve never been to NYC before let me point out a few traditional things in this picture – the yellow cab, the hot dog cart, the traffic, and the construction zone.

For those of you who have been to NYC but never to the Javits Center, let me point out a few fun things worth knowing about.

Meet Mr. Jacob Javits! A popular photo-op here at the Show.

Here’s the convenient subway cart in the Crystal Palace which serves breakfast, lunch, beverages (anything from coffee to beer) and snacks.

These Hudson News stands are in multiple locations and have everything you need for your 3:00 “pick-me-up.” Candy, magazines, souvenirs and disposable cameras make the post-lunch business day a little bit more exciting!

Before I go back to meeting exhibitors and answering phones, here are a few people who are making things here at the Show run a lot smoother (and didn’t fight me on having their picture taken).

Laura from our Operations Department:

Bibi from the New York International Gift Fair team:

And Ray from our Customer Relations Department:

See you when you get here (if I haven’t seen you already)!
