The third edition of COVER Connect New York will take place at the Metropolitan Pavilion and The Altman Building in Manhattan on September 9–11 on a grander scale than ever before. Expanding across two connected neighboring venues for 2023 means that visitors will be able to discover even more incredible rugs, by a greater range of select dynamic brands, in the intimate and collaborative atmosphere that has come to define COVER Connect events.
Scheduled to take place the month that the world’s premier buyers traditionally look to source rugs in New York, the annual fair—curated and hosted by COVER magazine—is viewed by many in the industry as an opportunity not-to-be-missed.
37 of the most esteemed rug companies are exhibiting—including all 22 of the brands involved in the 2022 edition and more than ten newcomers to the show. The exhibitors are carefully selected to ensure a wide variety of production and styles will be available to discerning buyers, all under one roof, from the best rug brands around.
COVER Connect New York will bring to Manhattan premier production from Nepal, India, Turkey and Afghanistan. The most sought-after traditional, transitional and contemporary rugs are presented in an exclusive setting designed to facilitate meaningful business and networking opportunities. Visitors can expect to discover the latest design developments, be the first to see a fantastic range of brand-new collections and be able to source a rug for every requirement.
