Reflections from Surtex 2012
May 30, 2012 § 2 Comments
I would have to say that deciding to attend Surtex this year was probably one of the best decisions that I’ve made in a long while. It was so incredibly eye-opening and helpful to spend time meeting designers, agents, and art buyers facet to face and to really see the industry in person. The National Stationery Show and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair were both being held in conjunction with the event, so I got the benefit of meeting designers from these areas as well and seeing the different ways these designers have become successful. Everyone was so friendly and willing to share advice – I definitely have lots of good contacts to keep in touch with over the coming year! After attending Surtex, I’m even more inspired and excited to create new designs and to make my business grow.
