WHITE PLAINS, NY, JUNE 23, 2014 – Sessions from the popular SURTEX® 2014 Conference Program – “Distinct Business Strategies from a Creative Perspective” – are now available for purchase at surtex.com for industry professionals who were unable to attend the live events.  Nine information-packed and insightful sessions, each led by notable industry experts, are available individually or packaged for convenient viewing.

Held during the May 18-20, 2014 edition of SURTEX, the Conference Program featured multi-disciplinary sessions for artists, designers, manufacturers, retailers and product developers.  Attendees and exhibitors who found themselves too busy during the show to participate may now take advantage of these sessions at their convenience.

“The availability of web-based content from SURTEX is a tremendous asset to the surface design community at large,” said Liz Crawford, VP, Group Show Director.  “It’s an easy and cost-effective way to benefit from the outstanding educational content provided during the show, when busy onsite schedules don’t allow for time away from the show floor.”

Session topics cover licensing versus selling art & design, the value of agents, anatomy of a licensing contract, artwork copyright, and licensing agreements.  In addition, three category-specific sessions are offered focused on textiles & home fashion, paper & stationery, and tabletop, gift & home décor.

A complete list of conference videos is available here.  They are available individually for $40 each, as a Day One 4-session package for $125, as a Day Two 5-session package for $150, or as a full 9-session program for $250.  Questions about the video sessions can be directed to Michelle Daniels at 914-421-3216 or michelle.daniels@emeraldexpo.com.
