WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-The upward surge of the retail economy helped to make last month's Surtex into a positive experience for exhibitors and attendees, according to a statement from GLM, the show's owner and manager.
The show drew more than 250 exhibiting companies, consisting of artists, designers, licensors and agents from throughout the world. GLM also said about 6,000 people attended the show, representing 41 countries and every continent except Antarctica.
Sikalis added that attendance at the Surtex Conference Program was also greater than at past shows. The program included sessions that covered topics including basic industry issues and the latest trends in licensing new artwork.
