SURTEX® OFFERS YEAR-ROUND ACCESS TO POPULAR 2013 CONFERENCE SESSIONS

WHITE PLAINS, NY, November 12, 2013 – For the first time, SURTEX® is making videotaped sessions from its highly-regarded 2013 Conference Program available for purchase on SURTEX.com.  Eight information-packed sessions, led by notable industry experts, are now accessible to the industry at large for easy and convenient viewing.

Held during the May 2013 edition of SURTEX, the leading trade show for surface design and art licensing, the comprehensive Conference presented multi-disciplinary sessions ideal for artists, designers, manufacturers, retailers and product developers.  Participants of SURTEX who found themselves too busy during the show, as well as non-participants of the market, can now reap the benefits of this education as their busy schedules allow.


“The introduction of web-based Conference viewing fulfills a frequent request by those who would benefit tremendously from this education, but find themselves with a packed schedule during the show,” said Penny Sikalis, GLM Vice President and SURTEX show manager.  “We’re pleased to provide a platform for year-round access to valuable educational information.”

Session topics are timeless, covering the basics of monetizing art and design, whether through licensing or selling designs outright; legal insight about design protection; and three industry-specific Category Spotlights imparting the specifics required to do business within the home textiles, stationery and tabletop product categories. See the complete list of 60-90 minutes conference videos here.  They are available individually for a nominal fee of $40, as a 4-session Track package for $110, or as a full 8-session program for $195.

Interested parties with questions about purchasing SURTEX 2013 Conference sessions online should contact Natasha Davis at 914-421-3290 or ndavis@glmmarkets.com.
