February 2024 Shoppe Object to include second venue
Shoppe Object, a New York trade event for curated home and gift, announced that its February show, scheduled for Feb. 4-6, 2024, will expand to include a second venue.
In lieu of the tent that previously maximized Shoppe Object’s Pier 36 home, the event has added a venue twice the size — the recently renovated Skylight at Essex Crossing in the heart of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The two neighboring venues are less than a mile apart — Pier 36 and Essex Crossing — and will house the entirety of the expanded show, with shuttles running between the two locations.
“We’re spreading our wings once again,” said Jesse James, the show’s founder and director. “Over the past two shows, we delivered a 30% increase by adding a tent at our Pier 36 home, and now it’s time to double that. With the addition of this brand new venue, part of the Essex Crossing complex and right at the subway hub, we have twice as much room to grow as the tent provided previously. That, and we retain our combined footprint squarely in the heart of Manhattan’s thriving Lower East Side, with two great venues in close proximity. It provides an excellent opportunity for us to bring meaningful growth to our community while continuing to deliver the very best brands from around the world to the New York market.”
Shoppe Object, in collaboration with its parent company ANDMORE, chose Skylight at Essex Crossing for its dramatic architecture and distinctive feeling, as well as its location adjacent to Essex Market and The Market Line, and its proximity to Pier 36. The show will allow entrance at either venue, with shuttles running the walkable distance between the two buildings.
