April 15, 2020

The world we live in today is unprecedented and ever-changing, and has required adaptation and innovation from everyone in our industry and beyond.


Part of our adaptation has been ensuring we can still create marketplaces for you to grow your business and rebuild effectively and efficiently moving forward. Our top two priorities are to ensure the safety and well-being of our customers and partners when they arrive on-site at one of our shows, and to ensure that our customers, whose resources may be more limited now than ever, can get the most out of their experience at our events.


As a result of those priorities, we have made the decision to combine all of our NY marketplaces into one, in September.


That means our CHILDREN’S CLUB show, scheduled for August 2-4, and our July Men’s show PROJECT New York, scheduled for July 19-21, will move to September 22-24 alongside COTERIE. While NY WOMEN'S, also scheduled for August 2-4, is cancelled, exhibiting brands will be accommodated in the COTERIE, MODA and FAME shows in September as always. That will allow us to have a combined New York marketplace with Men’s, Women’s, Children’s, and Accessories all in one place, ensuring brands and retailers can come to a single event and make the most connections possible. 


This decision is especially significant for our Men’s market, as the menswear industry has made the united decision to move all shows to September in New York, thus allowing the industry to come together in a unified way.  Liberty Fairs and Man NYC are joining us in this endeavor, and we thank them for their leadership and for making this decision with us on behalf of the menswear industry.


We are hopeful that these expanded marketplaces and collaborations with our partners are allowing us to better serve you. With the Javits Center being transformed into a one-stop-shop for brands and retailers during our event, and the industry-wide decision to have September in New York be the central hub for the Fashion community this year, we are adapting as a community to meet the needs of our customers and partners.


We hope that this news provides you some comfort and enthusiasm as we continue to look for ways to best serve our community’s needs. We again thank our partners at the Liberty Fairs and Man NYC for their efforts to unify the menswear industry, and hope to see you, whether you are a brand or retailer in Men’s, Women’s, Children’s or Accessories at our show in September.
