New trade association will keep New Yorkâ€™s home of tabletop alive
New Yorkâ€™s home of tabletop, 41 Madison has been saved. A new trade association is being formed, made up primarily of 41 Madisonâ€™s loyal tabletop tenants and with that, it is understood that the New York Tabletop Show (commonly referred to as 41 Madison) will be run by the new association.
â€œYes, a tabletop association is in the process of being organised and formed by a group of industry leaders mostly current 41 Madison tenants,â€ confirmed Kristi Forbes, senior vice president, 41 Madison.
Kristi confirmed that the New York Tabletop Show would continue with its original dates. â€œWe are hoping that the shows will continue on the previously announced dates for the foreseeable futureâ€¦ we are working to get the association up and running for brands to join this spring, right around the show. The October 18-21 2022 show dates have been published for over three years, many have already started their market plans.â€
News broke earlier this year that the April edition of the New York Tabletop Show was to be the last after management of the 41 Madison building, Rudin Management Company, said they would no longer support an official New York Tabletop Show.
