NEW YORK--Preparations are underway for International Artexpo New York, which will be held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, March 8 to 12, 2001. According to show officials, Artexpo New York will welcome a record number of visitors and exhibitors to its 23rd annual event.

Artexpo attendees will see the latest trends and newest work from more than 650 exhibiting companies representing 2,400 artists from 60 countries. On display will be prints, paintings, posters, functional art, sculpture, glass and new technology.

She added, "The fact that the majority of visitors to Artexpo return every year is indicative of the show's importance to the industry. Buyers plan their year around these 5 days in New York."

What keeps people coming back year after year? Jones maintains the key to success is making sure the show addresses the latest industry trends. "Each year we look at the art industry critically to determine market changes and growth areas. We keep Artexpo fresh by addressing those areas.

Jones added, "Over the past few years we have greatly expanded Artexpo University, our seminar program. Artexpo visitors are hungry for information regarding industry trends, how to improve their business and in the case of consumers, how to buy art." Show organizers invite industry leaders to address these issues and more at Artexpo University, which is free to all attendees. …
