B&STA of New York

The B&STA of NY is a family of sales representatives. Our goal is our members success. In order to achieve this, we have developed a new methodology in tradeshows, delivering marketing services to our brands. Our team promotes the brand's prior to, during and after our events. Through creative email marketing, social media campaigns, direct mailings, and targeted phone calls we present brands to registered retailers.

For 110 years, B&STA of NY has been uniting members, buyers and retailers, while aiding in the success of the sales representatives. For our retailers convenience, we aggregate a diverse group of brands cohesively, on one floor.

The show space is 135,000 square feet at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in the Northeast territory. Shows are held four times a year, each with over 400 booths consisting of Men’s, Women’s and Children’s footwear, apparel and accessories. What distinguishes the show is the diverse array of fashion forward, urban, outdoor, athletic, lifestyle, work and comfort products available to buyers and retailers. We coordinate our event with the retailer in mind by merchandising our floor by product category and wholesale price point. They can shop the aisles, purchasing from the vast product display, while enjoying free coffee, doughnuts, a delicious catered lunch and onsite parking.
