Now in its seventh year, BDNY has seen double-digit growth each year since its 2010 debut, garnering recognition in Trade Show Executive (TSE) magazine’s annual ranking of the 50 Fastest-Growing Shows for three consecutive years.
This year BDNY will expand to 100,000 square feet of exhibit space, with 600+ manufacturers and marketers of furniture, fixtures, lighting, seating, wall coverings, accessories and other design elements for hospitality interiors.
