DECOR Expo-New York Returns to Javits, with Uptown/Downtown Show: The Art and Framing Trade Show Features Two Levels and New Partnership with Artexpo New York
NEW YORK--DECOR expo--New York will return to the Jacob Javits Convention Center from Friday, Feb. 28 to Sunday, March 3, 2003. The show will be running concurrently with Artexpo New York and will feature a two-level showcase of art and framing materials during a show themed "The Picture Perfect Playground."
The three-day trade show will now be situated on two levels of the Javits Center which will be labeled "Uptown" and "Downtown." New equipment, moulding, materials, prints and products will be found on both levels. Uptown will showcase the "Production Framing" pavilion-while Downtown areas like "Chelsea" and "Soho" will feature the art exhibits and the Central "Art" Park. DECOR expo--New York will feature 280 exhibitors in 890 booths (as of Oct. 22).
"We return to New York with a renewed sense of optimism and purpose. The economy is showing signs of improving, and we feel we are coming together as an industry at a most opportune time. This year we are going to offer attendees a number of compelling and exciting reasons to come to New York. Over the course of one weekend, they will be able to see their current vendors and a host of new ones. There will be a ton of new art and new mouldings, as well as a wide range of new and expanded products and services. We look forward to seeing you there," said Hugh Tobin, associate show director.
Educational programs will once again be a significant part of the show. A full slate of educational sessions from Kistler Seminars, targeting all aspects of art and framing, will be offered during the three days.
Also, registration is free for attendees who register before Jan. 31,2003. Show officials said attendees who register online can enter the "Make New York Your Playground Giveaway." One winner gets two nights at the Marriott Marquis, dinner and two tickets to a Broadway play.
