i attended the first 7 W NYC Baby & Kids Fair earlier this week. I have been to so many trade shows over the past 30 years, but I have never attended a children’s trade event that offered as many perks to both buyers and exhibitors. Congratulations to the 7 W sales and management team, as well as the entire staff of the building, for hosting a successful and first-class premier event.

Consumers are also becoming more educated about the sensitivity of newborns’ skin and the benefits of organic clothing. Combine this with advancements to incorporate a wider range of colors and fashionable styling into organics, and you have a recipe for success.
