COVER Connect New York 2023, curated and hosted by COVER magazine, opens Saturday, Sept. 9. The 2023 edition of the annual boutique trade show for high-end rug brands will be held at two neighboring venues in central Manhattan, Metropolitan Pavilion and The Altman Building, Manhattan, NYC. Since the first event in 2021, it has expanded with steady momentum, increasing the breadth of products offered by attracting more top-level dynamic exhibitors.
The show has become a firm favorite on the calendars of buyers, gallerists, retailers, and design studios. The 2023 lineup features forty international rug and carpet companies, demonstrating the most creative, artisan-made weaving on the market today. Expect to discover new collections, the latest designs, and technical developments, plus a huge range of custom rug options, in an intimate and collaborative atmosphere.
The exhibitors have been carefully selected to complement one another and to ensure a wide variety of production and styles will be available, under one roof. All twenty-two of the international brands involved in the 2022 edition are back, plus there are more than fifteen newcomers to the show.
