The Press Release:
Since 1983, PHOTOPLUS has brought the photography and video communities together each fall to connect, share ideas, and experience the newest imaging technology. Our goal is always to support, inspire and celebrate this remarkable community. That said, it is with great difficulty that we announce that we have decided to cancel our in-person event at the Javits Convention Center in New York, NY, scheduled for September 30-October 2, 2021.

The cancellation of the live event is due to developments regarding the ongoing progression of the COVID-19 pandemic and related company-imposed travel restrictions affecting customers’ ability to gather in New York for PHOTOPLUS. While the decision to cancel is a disappointing one, we recognize the extreme demands that the COVID-19 pandemic has placed on establishments, and particularly small businesses, in this industry..

The Press Release:
After careful consideration, the NY Luxury Design Fair has decided to make the very difficult decision to postpone the inaugural event to September 8-11, 2022, due to ongoing complications related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The fair has found great enthusiasm and support from prestigious media partners, A&D trade organizations, and many leading manufacturers, and expected robust ticket sales from trade professionals and consumers eager to attend. Unfortunately, many confirmed and prospective exhibitors, local and abroad, have communicated continued challenges including unpredictable future health concerns, managing product backlogs, current workforce shortages and travel bans, limiting corporate policies, and delayed shipping timelines.

Organizers Postpone The 2021 New York Tattoo Convention

The Statement:
Hey, hope you are well. The ongoing pandemic is causing huge uncertainty around international travel, especially into the USA. At this time we have indications from the New York health dept regarding the possibility of very-limited attendances at indoor events of approximately 20% – 25%. These contributing factors would severely detract from our vision of what will be a world class international tattoo convention. The integrity of the New York Tattoo Convention is a core value of the show.

The New York Philharmonic Cancels All Previously Scheduled Concerts Through June 2021

The Press Release:
If the world hadn’t changed, the New York Philharmonic would have opened its subscription season and by now been well into our live concert schedule. We all know why that simply wasn’t possible. I cannot begin to tell you how much the musicians, Jaap van Zweden, and the entire “Phil family” miss you and our shared communal experience of a live concert.

Today we share news that we did our best to avert, but reality has intervened. Due to mandatory state and city government health regulations, the Philharmonic will not be able to resume live, indoor concerts in January as originally hoped. With deep regret, all previously scheduled concerts from January 6 to June 13, 2021, must now be cancelled. In the 178-year history of our institution, the cancellation of an entire season marks a historic first, and a dreadful one at that. If you are disappointed, please know how devastated we all are by this turn of events. The health and financial challenges, indeed the experiential challenges we all face, are profound.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Sadly, I’ve never been to this particular event before but did learn about it from our friends over at the The Worley Gig who’ve covered it a number of times over the years. One of my plans for this year before it all came crashing down was to explore it at long last and bring you the inside scoop. Let’s hope that the Spring Show that is listed on their website will end up happening because if it is I will do my best to be there as well. See you next time. Feel free to chime in if you were planning on this one as I’d love to hear from you.
