AIPAD just announced that it was being forced out of the Park Avenue Armory in 2017.

Here's part of the AIPAD announcement:

The Photography Show presented by AIPAD, one of the world’s most highly anticipated annual photography events, has announced that the Show will move to Pier 94 in New York next year. The Show will be held from March 30 – April 2, 2017, with an Opening Night Preview on March 29.

This year, the 36th edition of The Photography Show will take place from April 14-17, 2016, at the Park Avenue Armory, where it has been held since 2006.

Presented by the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), the fair is the longest-running and foremost exhibition dedicated to the photographic medium. The Show will commence with an Opening Night Preview on April 13, 2016.

"Due to growing demand from exhibitors and the increasing popularity of the Show among collectors, we began looking for alternate sites several years ago,” said Catherine Edelman, president of AIPAD and director of Catherine Edelman Gallery. “The timing for the move to Pier 94 turned out to be ideal, since the Park Avenue Armory did not offer us dates for 2017. We are delighted that we will now be able to accommodate all AIPAD members as well as special exhibitions, guest exhibitors, and more sponsors."
