Artexpo Las Vegas Makes Bold Moves in Education: The International Art Business Conference, Presented by Art Business News, to Debut at 2008 Show


International Artexpo Las Vegas is taking great strides to support and improve the art industry with the exclusive debut of the International Art Business Conference (IABC), presented by Art Business News and sponsored by Universal Framing Products.

For many expo attendees, education is the No. 1 reason for attending the show. A challenging market requires a proactive attitude, and Artexpo is helping many dealers take the first step by providing an extensive industry-specific curriculum and certificate program featuring 30-plus seminars.

"We've had nothing but a positive response to the education we've offered thus far at the Artexpo shows." says Education Director Tracy Lewis. "That's why we're making this year's offerings bigger and better than ever. Exhibitors and attendees can look forward to pre-show courses in addition to those that run during show hours--all taught by industry experts on the most pertinent topics in the industry today:'

Craig Kausen, president and CEO of Linda Jones Enterprises, will kick off the debut of the IABC with a keynote address. Noted industry experts such as art-marketing guru Rafael Mael, fine-art and framing expert William Parker, licensing aficionado Lisa Fondo and prized art consultant Zella Jackson will follow Kausen's lead, offering invaluable advice to better a broad range of art businesses.

Education topics will include sales, marketing, technology, retailing and more with certificates available in Sales, Marketing and Collector Development. Gallery owners, printmakers, artists, gallery consultants, publishers, designers, corporate art buyers and architects are invited to attend.

Reviews from past education programs at Artexpo have been more than favorable. After attending classes at Artexpo New York in March, Marianne Ham of EM Adams Gallery said, "I have taken other classes of this nature, and this program was the best. I felt I learned what I needed to be a better gallery consultant?

Art Business News and Universal Framing Products are proud to be a part of the groundbreaking program, which is expected to elevate the professionalism and expertise of industry members like never before.

"Education is the primary focus of Art Business News, and the International Art Business Conference is just another way of extending that service to our readers" says ABN Publisher Kim Feager. "It is our hope that the Artexpo/Art Business News education initiative will continue to grow and fuel the industry with positive energy"

Universal Framing Products President Mark Gottlieb says education is more important now than it ever was, given the current economic conditions. That's why his company, a leading provider of high-quality picture-frame mouldings, signed on as the exclusive moulding sponsor of Artexpo and the IABC.

"The IABC always has an esteemed panel of instructors that, with their experience, can help keep our industry elevated even in the toughest of economic times;' Gottlieb says. "Education is important for our industry because an educated art buyer is a discerning custom framing buyer, which benefits the industry as a whole."
