The Marketplace for Buying & Licensing Original Art & Design

SURTEX is the premier event for retailers, manufacturers and licensees seeking unique art, designs, patterns and prints for commercial use on apparel, home goods, stationery, giftware or any other finished product.

Nowhere else can you see the trend-setting work of some 1,000 professional artists (200+ artist/agent/licensor exhibitors) under one roof.

SURTEX Features:

  • Source new and unique designs from over 200 artists
  • Learn from industry experts at our annual conference
  • Face-to-face networking with manufacturers, artists, agents and retailers
  • Free for qualified buyers/licensees with advanced registration

Most of the artists exhibiting at SURTEX debut their newest and best work of the year at the Show. This is where you need to be as you develop your upcoming product lines. You’ll see original art & design in every conceivable theme and style—from contemporary patterns for high-end textiles to holiday prints for party supplies and giftwrap—and everything in between.

There’s no better place to learn the ins, outs and best practices of buying and licensing original art & design than the SURTEX Conference, held each year in conjunction with the Show.

Catch up with industry colleagues and forge new business relationships at networking events such as evening receptions and parties around Manhattan. Make valuable new connections with artists, designers and licensors at the Show who aren’t seen anywhere else.

Do all this and more in just 3 days—and Show attendance is FREE to qualified art buyers/licensees who register in advance. View the details on pricing and registration.
