Venue & Accommodations

The 2025 Upstate New York Gift Expo will be held on February 25th-27th.

Hours are 9:00-5:00 Tuesday & Wednesday, 9:00-3:00 Thursday.



Our new venue is the Utica University Nexus Center. The Center is in downtown Utica, New York. The location is minutes from the NYS Thruway Exit #31 and a few hundred yards from NYS Routes 12, 28, & 5. It is a brand new, state of the art facility. A Utica Club Lounge restaurant, The Utica Coffee Roasting Company and a concession stand are all on site for your convenience. The Event Parking is on Whitesboro Street across from the venue. The Nexus Center is attached to the Adirondack Bank Center at the Utica Memorial Auditorium "The Aud", aka the home of the Utica Comets AHL affiliate of the NHL's New Jersey Devils, Utica City FC Major Arena Soccer League and The Utica University Pioneers Men's & Women's Hockey Teams. The Aud holds a rich history for Utica and the Madison Square Garden in New York City is actually modeled after this Auditorium.
