The New York Tabletop Show, scheduled for March 31-April 3 in New York City, has been canceled due to concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19), according to a statement from 41 Madison.
“As Coronavirus (COVID-19) conditions continue to evolve globally, we are assessing the risks they may pose to the 41 Madison community and the tabletop industry at large. Following careful study and extensive discussion with community leaders and New York City government officials, we have elected to cancel the March 31 – April 3, 2020 New York Tabletop Show," the statement said. "We believe that hosting large-scale gatherings under prevailing public health conditions is not in the best interest of our customers and the tabletop community. At the same time, we recognize that companies operating within the building remain free to conduct business at their discretion. While we know this decision may impose unanticipated changes in plans, we also believe it will provide peace of mind and support general well-being.”
