American Handcrafted Canceled
Oct. 23, 2023 - Last week a team of Emerald Expo executives announced the cancellation of the American Handcrafted show. The show was scheduled to be held February 17-19, 2024 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
AH was an important show for the craft industry since it has been the only national trade show featuring only handmade crafts made by artists in North America. It followed the long tradition of a craft industry show held in Philadelphia each February begun by the Buyers Market of American Craft, then the ACRE show, and finally the American Handcrafted show.
We know that losing this show will affect many of our members, both retailers and artists. In order to facilitate an exchange of information about alternative shows, CRAFT is pleased to host a ZOOM forum.
