The Expo


The Upstate New York Gift Expo is a wholesale gift show newly located in the heart of New York State at the brand new Utica University Nexus Center ​located in Utica, NY. This event offers a unique, enjoyable, and convenient shopping and selling experience.

For three days each February, the Upstate New York Gift Expo welcomes buyers from top regional retailers including gift shops, specialty stores, craft stores, boutiques, stationery stores, museum shops, hardware stores, and pharmacies.

In response to exhibitor and buyer requests, we are now offering exhibitors the option to sell their products via cash and carry. Exhibitors who choose to participate will be grouped in a convenient cash and carry section of the show floor.

The Upstate New York Gift Expo is proud to offer a diverse group of the best exhibitors representing the following markets: gifts, souvenirs, resort merchandise, jewelry, decorative items, furniture, personal accessories, handmade items, regional books, and more.
