Forty One Madison has announced that the fall New York Tabletop Market, taking place October 13 to 20, will welcome visitors both in-person by appointment and online through a new digital show hub.
To engage the broader tabletop community, 41Madison.com will host a dedicated New York Tabletop Show hub with new digital features designed to help visitors better connect with brands from afar. Pre-registration for the virtual show will begin on Monday, September 14.
The hub will include features such as dedicated brand pages that will be developed to conveniently offer downloadable sell sheets, interactive 3D virtual tours of showrooms, and direct lines of communication with showrooms.
Forty One Madison will offer a full schedule of programming that will include interactive workshops like floral styling classes, matcha-making, mixology demos, culinary experiences and others.
The NY Tabletop Market digital hub will also include webinars and video content that will address important timely topics such as:
- Grateful Gatherings: Transforming traditions in entertaining for Holiday 2020
- COVID-19 Impact on Consumer Spending
- Tabletop Trends: Crucial Recovery Consideration
- Future of Hospitality: a discussion with leading hoteliers and chefs
The digital hub will also include a Look Book featuring top new products across more than 200 brands; and the Newstand, a digital reading room that will feature the latest issues from industry publications. The Tastemaker Takeovers program will also return with live Instagram feeds that will feature favorite products curated by industry influencers.
In addition, as Forty One Madison showrooms are open year-round by appointment, those showrooms will continue to operate in the same fashion through the show.
Visitors will be required to check-in for badges and comply with all building safety protocols including mandatory temperature checks and mask-wearing upon entry. Appointments should be made directly with showrooms and a full list of open showrooms will be posted on 41Madison.com.
Guests visiting the building can enjoy a newly open dining option, Mark’s Off Madison, by chef Mark Strausman. The restaurant is slated to open in mid-to-late September for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as takeout/delivery and catering. Socially distanced outdoor seating will be available.
