New York City Home Textiles Market FAQs: 

When is Home Textiles Market in New York City? The New York City market is held 2 times a year, generally in the months of March and September. The dates are published here. 

Do I need to register? Can anyone attend? I’m a member of the Press, do I need a press badge? This is a “show in the showrooms.” There are permanent showrooms participating as well as temporary space leased just for market week. No registration is needed in advance, but some showrooms will ask for buyer credentials at the door. Each commercial building in NYC has different security rules for their tenants. It’s best to contact the showroom/manufacturer you’re visiting directly to inquire on security requirements. When possible, it is also best to make appointments in advance vs. walk in.
