JA New York is pleased to announce that the dates for the March 2014 JA New York Show have been extended. Originally the dates were set at March 2, 3 and 4; however, because the TDC Hong Kong Show opens on March 5th, JA learned that many vendors would not be able to participate in both shows due to such close timing.
In order to accommodate many loyal exhibiting companies, the Show dates have changed to March 1-4, 2014. For one time only the show will be 4 days with a Saturday opening. This will allow those companies going to TDC to exhibit at JA New York Winter, and by leaving the show on March 3rd still have 3 days of selling. This date pattern also allows Sabbath observers to have 3 days of selling (Sunday – Tuesday).
JA tried to secure alternative dates; however, no other date options at the Javits Center are available. The JA New York Show community overwhelming prefers the early March dates vs. January. Having the maximum number of participating companies benefits everyone. The more brands and selections the Show can promote to buyers, the more buyers they can attract to New York to restock after the holidays.
