Surtex is a B2B (business to business) marketplace and this fair brings together the best professionals and companies related to the field of design. Surtex takes place in New York and gathers more than 5000 people like clients, artists, designers and studios. In Surtex they’ll display the latest news and innovations related to design and art.
Surtex is the only fair in North America exclusively dedicated to selling licenses and original works of art and design for all kinds of products. This event has three characteristics worth to mention:
An Art District
This was launched last year. This section gives you a small glimpse on the best emerging artists in the field of design.
The objective of this is promoting the encounter between retailers and licensees of design so they can work together in creating products in hundreds of categories. In this area you will find everything related to Decoration: home decoration, phone cases, clothing, printed fabrics, gifts and novelties, stationery, tables and much more.
Art & Brand Licensing
Art and brand licensing is the largest licensing forum in NYC. Exhibiting artists, designers, agencies, and brands featuring thousands of creative works available for license. Thousands of retailers and manufacturers looking to source artwork for their products attend every year.
Since its origins Surtex is held in New York City. This year won’t be the exception and will take place at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from May the 21st to 23rd. Definitely a fair that serves as reference in this field.
