LIMA Show Revamped
Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, February 7, 2005
The Licensing 2005 International show will feature an enhanced Art and Design Licensing Gallery with a redesigned section that includes additional exhibition space, an art lounge and a café as well as a newly formed Art and Design Licensing Gallery advisory board.
The event is scheduled to take place from June 21 to 23 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.
According to the International Licensing Industry Merchandisers' Association (LIMA), a worldwide trade association for the licensing industry that sponsors the show, there has been a 3.7 percent increase in art and design royalty revenues over the past year, bringing the total to $167 million.
Thomas Kinkade and Porterfield's Fine Art are among the more than 200 artists, designers, photographers and illustrators showcasing their artwork at the show's gallery later this year.
