Back at ya! Now that SURTEX is over, I’d like to thank everyone for their support of the show. I had the pleasure of meeting new customers and seeing some existing ones, too. The dust has settled a little bit, and I’m sure you are all back at your day jobs doing what you love best. We, too, are back at it, and busily planning next year’s installment. Mark your calendars for May 15-16-17, 2016.
I’m thrilled with the feedback and the success of the show this past May. I’ve heard from many of you, and the response has been very positive! Looks like most exhibitors were happy with the quality of the attendees, and many report seeing new companies who’ve never been to the show before.
We heard about cool new product manufacturers, among others looking for original art….the reviews are steady, good, and the bloggers out there are very supportive of our efforts. All I can say now is a big THANK YOU! Special thanks to our Advisory Board members as well for taking the time to chat with us about ways to enrich the show for both artists and attendees. I welcome all feedback and please watch your email for more updates on the exciting things we will be rolling out for 2016.
Meanwhile, enjoy your summer!
