NEW YORK–An overwhelming majority of 41 Madison tenants approve of the new midweek tabletop show schedule, according to a survey by the building.
They voted in favor of no weekends and fewer market days, a concept supported by a Wednesday-through-Friday format this year, and a Tuesday-through-Friday format in 2009.
“It was clear the buying groups, department and chain stores chose to attend the market during the week with the independents remaining split on the issue,” said Carole Dixon, senior vice president and director of 41 Madison, which issued a survey shortly after the tabletop show last month. “There was very little traffic on Saturday and virtually none on Sunday. Following the show, we revised the dates to better serve the needs of retailers and our tenants.”
The New York fall tabletop show will take place Wednesday, Oct. 22, to Friday, Oct. 24.
