WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.—Early registrations for exhibitors at the May 2011 edition of Surtex have risen 29 percent to date over early registrations at this time last year for the 2010 Surtex, according to GLM, owner and manager of the trade show.

GLM Vice President Penny Sikalis, Surtex’s manager, said renewing companies are locking up their spaces earlier than in the past, and nearly 40 new companies have applied as well as the design industry continues its rebound from the weak economy of the past two years. “If we continue on this path—and I anticipate that we will—we will hit our projection of some 300 exhibitors in 2011,” Sikalis said.

For next May’s Surtex, GLM will offer an expanded series of webinars, covering topics including “Getting Started in Art Licensing,” “Preparing Your Booth Presentation for Surtex 2011” and “Operations Basics: Logistics for a Smooth Move-in and Set-up.”
