“NY NOW’s role is to bring buyers and brands together safely in a spirit of discovery and unity. With that in mind, we are rescheduling our August event and will instead run a NY NOW Fall Edition in October,” said Tim Hart, SVP Retail, NY NOW. “We are pleased to coordinate our change of dates with the organizers of Shoppe Object so that buyers experience a robust and convenient Market Week in October. We will continue to monitor the progress of the COVID-19 pandemic and review our plans as required. It’s, of course, disappointing that our community will not be able to gather in August, but we look forward to coming together in October,” continued Hart.

“Like the rest of the world, we are closely monitoring the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic and doing our part to act responsibly,” said Jesse James, co-Founder of Shoppe Object. “While we had hoped to activate in August, we feel more confident about the possibility of producing Shoppe Object with a mid-Autumn date. It’s our hope that by then, we will have moved into a safer period where we are able to gather with appropriate precautions in place and an eye toward moving forward.”
The health and safety of our customers, employees, and partners continue to be the show’s highest priority.
