GLM to Launch Surtex Asia

NEW YORK-GLM today announced plans to launch Surtex Asia, a new trade fair that will meet the growing demand in Asia for unique and proprietary surface design for product development.

Taking place August 25-27, 2013, at the Kerry Hotel in Pudong, Shanghai, Surtex Asia will feature more than 50 top textile design studios from Great Britain, Europe, North America, South America and Japan, and will attract more than 1,500 manufacturers from China, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

"Bringing the successful Surtex brand to Asia is a natural extension of this highly-regarded show," said Penny Sikalis, vice president and Surtex show manager. "This fair will address the original surface design needs of the Asian manufacturing community through an unparalleled selection of studios with trend-forward prints and patterns ideal for their next best-selling products, as well as education and networking features."
