My thoughts on Surtex by Jen Goode
I went to Surtex for the first time to see what it was all about. I walked the show and attended a number of the conference sessions. It was definitely worth the cost for me. I learned a great deal and was able to connect with both seasoned and new artists in the industry.
I walked the Stationery show and took the opportunity to network there a bit as well. The experience not only gave me some new insight into this industry but reinforced topics I've learned networking and researching online. Now I have a better understanding of what directions I want to go and what I need to do as far as "next steps".
I'm considering exhibiting next year.
