Meet Us in the (GCA) Village

The GCA Village returns for its third year at the National Stationery Show (NSS) in New York this February! This “Village” gives smaller and up-and-coming GCA members a fantastic opportunity to join a community space in a great location on the show floor. It’s a wonderful place to learn about how other companies got their start – and what keeps them going (An added benefit: the GCA handles most of the logistics related to the Village.)!

Register for space, which is available only to GCA members, on a first-come, first-served basis. For only $1,375.00, each company will receive an exhibit space that’s “move-in ready,” with built-in shelving which you select, complimentary signage and basic electrical. GCA staff and volunteers can help with the set-up and tear down.

Review the application or apply for your space now. Thanks to our GCA Village partner and GCA Associate Member Universal Presentation Concepts, for designing the exhibit space. Be a part of the GCA Village, our official home at the NSS!“
