Surtex is the only show in North America solely devoted to licensing original art and design for all types of products, so exhibitors and attendees come from all around the world to spend 3 days at the Jacob Javits Center. In addition to the United States, 49 countries (among them United Kingdom, Japan, Mexico, Israel, Italy, France, Canada and Germany) are also represented at the show.
SURTEX draws hundreds of agents and designers from around the world to New York City, where they are given the opportunity to market their collections to manufacturers of products and art buyers from numerous product categories like home furnishings, apparel, gift, toy, stationery, greeting card, tabletop, and publishing.
Art Licensing had a very successful show! We had a beautiful booth with 18 panels of amazing art. We had non-stop meetings all 3 days and we got to communicate with many of our customers as well as a lot of potential new customers. We are back in the office now, feeling pretty exhausted, but super excited as we are following up with our meetings and sending off pdfs of the images that were selected at the show.
