Hi everyone,

It's time to reserve your spots for Surtex 2017.  

In 2017 we will have the same size booths ( [max4] 10x10) for artists who want to show their work, plus an additional managed booth for members wishing to show their portfolios.  This way it allows more members a presence at Surtex.  You are able to select to do both options to double your exposure, or just one.  It's entirely up to you.  Also, after last time you may be considering showing on your own next year.  If so, that's fantastic news!  Even if you decide to do this, you can still have your portfolio with us too. 

So what do we offer?  Read below to find out, I think you'll agree, we offer great value for money!
