New York, NY, July 25, 2011—Metro Market Week organizers are encouraging buyers to make flight and hotel reservations now for the annual rug market that provides exclusive access to wholesale rug showrooms in the NY/NJ metro area. Metro Market Week Promotions Director, Peter Woodaman says advanced planning is even more crucial for this year’s event, held Sept. 12-15, 2011.

“Because this year is also the tenth anniversary of 9/11, New York hotels will probably be booked up earlier,” he adds. “Buyers who wait to make reservations could lose out.”

And that would be bad for buyers searching for the latest global rug trends. The eighth annual Metro Market Week is the nerve center of the industry, where buyers and importers exchange ideas and work together. Activity at the market sets the tone for the industry going forward.

Buyers can get even more from their trip by taking advantage of the following markets that run concurrently:

• ORICA Fall Market (, Sept. 12-15

• New York International Carpet Show (, Sept. 11-13

Visit to register and to take advantage of everything Metro Market Week has to offer, including area hotel information, or call (888) 672-6758. Look for the official 2011 Fall Market Week Buyers’ Guide — featuring all three autumn area rug industry venues—to be distributed early Sept.
