We’re Looking Out For You

Curve New York trade shows that feature lingerie and swimwear, announced today in a company email that their September trade show, originally planned for September 21 to 23 at the Javits Center in New York’s Hudson Yards, has been cancelled due to overwhelming concerns from COVID19.

What will happen instead is a new virtual trade show called Curve Connect, which will take place from September 13 to 25, and you can register now to attend this new virtual trade show with exhibitors participating in Curve Connect.

Here’s Curve New York’s official statement about pivot from physical to virtual……

Dear Curve Community:

It is with deep sadness & a heavy heart that we are officially cancelling the Curve New York September 2020 show. We know this is an enormous disappointment to the retailers, brands/exhibitors and the lingerie community at large.

This was a very difficult decision to make, however the safety & health of our community comes first. The uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic remains unclear, and with border restrictions & possible quarantine requirements, we have an ethical responsibility to cancel the Curve NY show.

We understand how important it is to stay connected & help each other through these recent market challenges. Although we can’t see you “live” in New York City, we remain committed to provide you the best digital experience though CURVE CONNECT, our new VIRTUAL show, September 13 – 25. Our focus will be to provide a platform where brand representatives and specialty stores owners can meet, offer a place to preview an international mix of the best lingerie collections, and provide daily webinars and panels about the intimate apparel industry. We are embracing the new technology available & look forward to introducing you to this exciting new way to discover & shop collections. Stay tuned for updates in the new few weeks!

Until then stay safe, healthy, & feel free to reach out to any of the Curve team with any show questions.

Cheers,
The Curve team

Daniel Quintanilla
