Create NYC event cancelled for 2022, rescheduled for 2023

Emerald Holdings, the organizer of the PHOTOPLUS and RF/WPPI shows, announced the postponement of the recently announced Create NYC creator event. Announced in May, the event was intended to replace the venerable PhotoPlus Expo, a mainstay of the East Coast photo scene.

Below is an excerpt from the announcement:

As any visual storyteller knows a great image requires just the right amount of exposure time. Since releasing the shutter on our plans in May, The Create NYC team has found that the first show needs a little extra time to produce the collective and inspiring experience imagined for this dynamic space. As a result, the Create NYC team has decided to pause our plans for this year in order to build a truly dynamic experience for 2023.

Over the coming year of planning, we look forward to building upon our collaborative efforts with creators from all walks of our industry to ensure that when we launch in 2023, Create NYC fosters collective experiences, inspires meaningful conversation and change, and serves as the bridge between cutting-edge artistic work and cultural relevance.

We appreciate your support and understanding as we regroup and plot our next steps towards fully realizing Create NYC in 2023.
