SURTEX® 2014 ATTENDEE REGISTRATION OPENS
PLUS EXCLUSIVE HOTEL ROOM BLOCKS ARE AVAILABLE

WHITE PLAINS, NY, December 16, 2013 – Online attendee registration is now open for SURTEX®, taking place May 18-20, 2014 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City, via SURTEX.com.  Additionally, hotel reservation booking for exclusive SURTEX rates at some 50 hotels in New York City is now available online through SURTEX.com and myGLMtravel.com.

Show attendance is free to qualified art buyers/licensees who register by the early registration deadline of May 13, 2014.  Qualified attendees who register early are guaranteed to save the $60 on-site admission fee and receive updates as news develops about the show’s exhibitors, features, on-site activities and social events.  Industry suppliers and others interested in visiting SURTEX may also pre-register and enjoy a savings on admission fee ($275 by May 13, 2014 and $375 thereafter).

Penny Sikalis, GLM VP and SURTEX show manager, explains, “Aside from the financial benefit of pre-registering, those taking advantage of early registration will get valuable advance information to help make their pre-show and onsite experience more productive.” 

Attendee pre-registration is easily accessible at SURTEX.com via mobile, tablet as well as standard computer devices.  The convenient process allows registrants to enter new data, review or revise existing registration information, and invite a colleague/ friend to register.  Once qualified, attendees will receive a confirmation email inclusive of a scannable e-badge that will process an actual badge at the onsite SURTEX Registration counter. As an added benefit, the SURTEX attendee  badge allows attendees entrance into the two co-located shows: the International Contemporary Furniture Fair® and signature mix™ marketplace, which is comprised of the National Stationery Show®, Creative & Lifestyle Arts® and Gift>it. 

SURTEX negotiates hotel rates exclusively for show participants through their official travel company, Travel Planners, Inc., which requires no booking or service fees.  Special discounted rates are made available at nearly 50 hotels (ranging from luxury to budget categories) throughout Manhattan and nearby New Jersey during show days.   Early booking means more choices from the available block, and peace of mind with a guaranteed lowest rate, and no charges until actual stays. Making reservations are risk-free—attendees have the ability to cancel or change at any time.  In addition, SURTEX arranges complimentary shuttles on show days to and from the Jacob Javits Center and other key destinations throughout Manhattan as a service to all SURTEX exhibitors and attendees.
