Surtex to Bring Back Expanded Atelier Section

Surtex 2014WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-The Atelier section, which is dedicated to global textile designers and studios that primarily sell surface designs, will return to Surtex this coming May.

The section made its debut at last year’s Surtex. This year, many of the exhibitors will return and new exhibitors will also be featured. In all, more than 90 designers and studios will be in the Atelier section; Surtex overall will display the work of more than 300 exhibitors.

“The response to Atelier has been terrific, and with the growing demand for cutting-edge surface designs, we anticipate a very dynamic marketplace in May,” said Penny Sikalis, Surtex’s show manager and vice president of GLM, the show’s owner and manager. This year’s Surtex will take place from May 18-20 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.
