Each winter, home furnishings retailers from throughout the Northeast have looked forward to connecting in-person with furniture, bedding & home décor manufacturers and wholesalers at the Northeast Furniture & Accessory Market, held at the New Jersey Convention Center in Edison.
However, given the growing concerns surrounding COVID-19, the event’s producer, MAC Expos, LLC, has made the tough decision to reschedule the event for August 22 – 24, 2021.
“For 60 years, the event has been the region’s go-to showcase
for a wide range of products and services related to the furniture
industry and displayed by leading suppliers from throughout the
Northeast,” said Event Director, Kevin McLaughlin. “As the region’s
premier annual event it would be detrimental for retailers,
manufacturers and wholesalers, alike, if the market did not take place
in any given year.”
“This was a difficult call to make – the Furniture Market is an incredibly important event for the Industry here in the Northeast — but we needed to prioritize the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, and partners who help make the Market a success.”
McLaughlin added, “The staff at the New Jersey Convention Center was so committed at working with us to find the perfect dates where all industry stakeholders would benefit, and the August time frame is just perfect.”
