White Plains, N.Y. - It's a year of expansion for Surtex, with the 2013 show promising more exhibition space, a specialized section for textile design studios, additional trend and business resources, and two new collocated shows.
Surtex will launch Atelier, a new section featuring about 75 textiles design studios from Great Britain, Europe, North America and Japan that primarily sell their art and designs outright.
Both the Trend Theatre, created in 2012, and the ReSource Hub will be enlarged in May with a focus on color, design and business trend information, as well as resource materials, software and other business essentials.
Ongoing Trend Theatre sessions, presented by worldwide forecasting companies, will be open to all attendees and exhibitors at no charge adjacent to the Atelier.
The trade fair will also include two new co-located shows. The Creative & Lifestyle Arts show will be positioned directly between the National Stationery Show and Surtex. The new SPACE: Strategy, Product, Architecture for Consumer Environments will be located in Javits North.
Surtex will take place May 19-21 at the Javits Convention Center in New York.
