Following pandemic-related postponements, The Rug Show returns to the East Coast at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, New Jersey on February 16-18, 2022. As a premier industry fair, The Rug Show offers attendees a place to buy new products, meet new rug makers, learn and build connections through networking.
“Finally, the largest and most important show of our industry is back,” says Jack Simantob at Art Resources. “It’s time to once again meet our old colleagues and see all the latest our industry has to offer.” In addition to the latest and greatest handmade rug products, a full schedule of events will be announced closer to the date of the show.
- Wednesday, February 16 — 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
- Thursday, February 17 — 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
- Friday, February 18 — 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
“There will be a party on Wednesday night that will act as a tribute and celebration of the life of our dear friend Ramin Mobayen,” said Simantob. “We’ll be releasing details soon on the event’s website, therugshow.com.”
Mobayen played a major part in developing The Rug Show during his time in the industry, helping to evolve the show in 2012 with a cooperative group of Los Angeles, CA-based rug dealers. Without Mobayen’s dedication, the show may not have endured to be the successful market it is today.
The hosts of the show have also made a deal with the Hyatt Place hotel to offer attendees rooms at a discounted rate of $125.00 per night including breakfast. Discounted rooms at the Courtyard Marriott are $119.00 per night without breakfast. To access the discounts, use the hotel links on therugshow.com. The hotels are conveniently located 200 yards from the Meadowlands Exposition Center. In addition, there are many restaurants close to the hotel/venue and Secaucus, NJ is just minutes away from New York City. Rug Insider Magazine will sponsor morning tea and baklava for all attendees every morning starting at 9:00 AM.
