FOUR DAYS OF FINE ART, EDUCATION & EVENTS

Since 1978, Artexpo New York has been the only fine art trade show to offer industry professionals access to thousands of wholesale works from international artists and publishers under one roof. Over four days, Artexpo will showcase over 1,000 emerging and established artists, innovative artwork, and the latest trends in the art world. It’ll be an extraordinary weekend of fine art, framing, and design in one convenient location—Pier 94, New York City’s hub for art, fashion, and design events.

A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE Artexpo has always been an extremely well-attended, popular event. Here are some facts and figures from our 2016 show: • Artexpo New York 2016 featured more than 400 exhibitors from around the world, representing thousands of artists. • Nearly 28,000 attendees, including trade buyers, art collectors, and members of the general public, attended the show. • 5,000+ trade buyers, including gallery owners, designers, art consultants, architects, and framers were in attendance. • More than 1,000 art-industry professionals attended the 30 classes, panel discussions, and meet-the-artist events offered at Artexpo. • A state-of-the-art mobile app helped exhibitors and attendees alike navigate the show. • Social media marketing via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Flickr promoted the show around the clock. • A full-time public relations team worked hand-in-hand with exhibitors upon registration to spread the word about their involvement in the show. • A media blitz—including full-page ads and comprehensive editorial, television, and calendar section coverage before the show—helped increase awareness and attendance. We’re anticipating an even bigger event for Artexpo New York 2017 at Pier 94!

EDUCATION, EVENTS & AWARDS Alongside the three shows, the event features the Topics & Trends Educational Series—four days of cutting-edge seminars and events that offer expert perspectives on subjects ranging from art and the economy to small business management, art marketing, social media for artists, and more. There are also several awards given out during the weekend to artists and galleries deemed by the Redwood Media Group team to have gone above and beyond in certain criteria. Honors handed out in 2016 included Best Booth Design, Best New Exhibitor, Best International Exhibitor, and [SOLO] Awards.
