Art and design showcase Surtex has unveiled a new area at next month's event for up and coming talent.

Designext will be open exclusively to new designers and students, strategically placed on the show floor for optimum traffic during Surtex, which runs from May 17th to 19th at New York's Jacob Javits Convention Center.

"This dedicated space offers a dynamic two-way street," said Penny Sikalis, GLM VP and show manager. "Designext gives emerging artists and designers a fantastic opportunity to actually market their work - and at the same time, it gives buyers and licensees the chance to see hip, fashion-forward art and design in its very earliest incarnations.

"We're looking forward to some dramatic discovery stories."

Designext will be available at a special price to the first time exhibitors. The space will include eight foot high hard walls, lighting and other furnishings, plus marketing support, PR assistance and additional show amenities.
