ICFF 2020 Cancellation Announcement

MARCH 17, 2020

ICFF 2020 Has Been Cancelled

The health and safety of our community is of the utmost importance to us. After closely monitoring the risk and impact of COVID-19, and after also speaking at length with members of the design community, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), which was scheduled for May 17-20, 2020 at the Javits Center, has been officially cancelled.

Recent developments regarding COVID-19 include, but are not limited to, the declaration of a National State of Emergency by President Trump, the New York State of Emergency announced by Governor Cuomo and the New York City State of Emergency announced by Mayor de Blasio, the latest federal measures, including travel restrictions placed on foreign nationals traveling to the United States from certain EU member states and other places, the declaration by the WHO of COVID-19 as a pandemic, and the accelerating pace of confirmed cases worldwide and domestically.  In addition, the current quarantines, containment areas and restrictions on congregating and large gatherings imposed by states and other government and public health authorities, various company-imposed travel restrictions on employees affecting attendees and participating companies, and the resulting cancellations made by several ICFF customers and partners. 

These developments have made it impossible to effectively execute a May event that delivers the level of customer value our community expects. Driven by our responsibility to ensure the best interests of the ICFF community, we made the decision to cancel ICFF 2020. The next ICFF is scheduled for May 2021.

We are grateful to the design community for its ongoing loyalty to ICFF and thank you in advance for understanding our decision. Additional information will be posted to the website as available.

Best regards.

The ICFF Team
