On the Surface



By Liz Crawford, VP Emerald Expositions/SURTEX Show Director 

It’s that time again!

As we put the final touches on SURTEX 2016, I wanted to make sure that everyone out there is as excited about the show as we are. I’ve been seeing a lot of activity on the website — The Image Gallery is outstanding!

All the artists are putting their images on our site, and you can shop them by artist from your desk or mobile device. Even more exciting: you can search by product category if you are looking for gifts, apparel…it’s ALL here! Equally viable is our new mobile app. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, do it now! The app offers everything you need to know — and more — about the show.

Also, don’t forget our $5000 cash drawing to be given to one lucky buyer. Use the mobile app…play the game…and you just might be the winner! Simply look up SURTEX 2016 in the app store and download it for free.

Finally, if you haven’t registered to attend the show, click here. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s your way into a world of new ideas, art, designs, and color…literally thousands of unique works of art for your products. There will be more than 80 brand-new artists and a feast of new images to choose from.

Also new and just waiting for the take-away: insider information and expertise at the SURTEX Conference Program. Three days…Thirty top experts in the industry, ready to share their experience and advice. It’s an unparalleled opportunity to ratchet up your professional acumen and knowledge. Look over the offerings and sign up today. Whether you are a freshman in the business or a Ph.D, you don’t want to miss out on this great educational opportunity.

In the aisles, in your booths, at the Trend Theatre and Conference Sessions, and especially at the cocktail reception Monday evening (in the Javits lobby), we look forward to seeing you soon at SURTEX!
