Surtex Opens Online Registration for Seminars
Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, April 6, 2009
Artwork and design trade show Surtex 2009 has opened online registration for a series of new conference sessions aimed at helping attendees improve their marketing tactics.
This year's Surtex conference program will span three days, May 17–19. Topics include: art licensing fundamentals; emerging color trends for 2010 and beyond; legalities of licensing; and working with an agent. Additional seminars include a retailer forum, a panel set to discuss branding in the art and design field, and a session on the licensor-and-licensee relationship.
Presenters will be drawn from the ranks of product developers, art licensing consultants and trend experts, such as Benjamin Moore & Co., Demdaco, Wild Apple Graphics and Milou Ket Styling and Design.
"The broad scope of topics is exciting and the hands-on details of each session can help jumpstart new business relationships," said Penny Sikalis, vp and show manager.
The conference program registration for Surtex, which is managed and produced by GLM, a dmg world media business, is separate from registration for the trade show. Rates vary and are available for individual sessions or for a package of seminars.
A complete listing of the Surtex conference program as well as online registration can be accessed at the event's web site, surtex.com.
