HFPA shifts fall 2011 market dates
September 30, 2010,
New York - The Home Fashion Products Association announced it has pushed back the date of the September 2011 New York Home Fashions Market week dates to avoid an overlap with the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
The new dates are Sept. 19-23, one week later than the original dates.
"While it may not be a major issue, there was concern that out of town suppliers and buyers may not want to travel to NYC during the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11. It is possible the President will be in town, security at the airports and around the city will be extra tight, and traffic in the city may be difficult," said the organization.
