The Press Release:
After careful consideration, the NY Luxury Design Fair has decided to make the very difficult decision to postpone the inaugural event to September 8-11, 2022, due to ongoing complications related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The fair has found great enthusiasm and support from prestigious media partners, A&D trade organizations, and many leading manufacturers, and expected robust ticket sales from trade professionals and consumers eager to attend. Unfortunately, many confirmed and prospective exhibitors, local and abroad, have communicated continued challenges including unpredictable future health concerns, managing product backlogs, current workforce shortages and travel bans, limiting corporate policies, and delayed shipping timelines.
Hey, hope you are well. The ongoing pandemic is causing huge uncertainty around international travel, especially into the USA. At this time we have indications from the New York health dept regarding the possibility of very-limited attendances at indoor events of approximately 20% – 25%. These contributing factors would severely detract from our vision of what will be a world class international tattoo convention. The integrity of the New York Tattoo Convention is a core value of the show. Continue reading Organizers Postpone The 2021 New York Tattoo Convention→
We wanted to reach out and let you know that we are moving the dates of the NYC Hot Sauce Expo to October 16 & 17, 2021. As more and more people are getting vaccinated and businesses are starting to open up we thought it would be best to postpone the event for just a little longer. Safety of ticket owners, staff and our hot sauce vendors has and will always be our top priority.

The Press Release:
This year has been unlike any other in any of our lives. EXXXOTICA is supposed to be a celebration and we were looking forward to closing our show year off with our lauded New Jersey event as we have for the past 12. But, 2020 has not been cooperating with anyone, and while we pushed off the inevitable decision with never-ending optimism, it is through tears of sincere disappointment that we must announce the postponement of EXXXOTICA New Jersey slated for October 23-25 at the New Jersey Expo Center in Edison. At this time, with current restrictions in the state that the Governor has in place, as well as the safety of everyone involved with EXXXOTICA, it is impossible to produce this year’s show in New Jersey.
Some have asked us if we would consider doing a virtual EXXXOTICA, and while we appreciate everyone’s eagerness as it pertains to our event, the idea of a virtual adult consumer show is, to be completely honest, stupid. EXXXOTICA is a living, breathing thing, and only works when we’re all together. You just cannot replicate the live experience, and we would never try. It’s like turning a wild mustang into My Little Pony. A Prius into a Formula One race car. Trump and Biden into BFFs. It just ain’t gonna happen. And like our elders always say, “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” Continue reading This Just In: EXXXOTICA NJ Postponed Due To COVID-19→
