My obsessing has finally come to an end! For the past few years, we were able to book our hotel at the May show, for the show the next year.  It became my habit.  My sister & I have stayed at the same hotel every year – it’s like our home away from home.  We know where the nearest Duane Reade is to get muchies and water. Which direction to go to catch the shuttle… yup!  We are creatures of habit!

But this year the hotels were getting a bit tough to pin down on rates, or so I’ve been told.  So from May till now, I check the website every so often… hopeful that I can book my rooms and know that we are good to go.

So joy of joys!  My room is booked! Got my flights too.

If you know you are exhibiting at SURTEX this year, I highly recommend you head over to and reserve your room while there are still lots of choices available.  (You can change them later without penalty.)

Here’s to your creative success and a great show – it will be here before we know it!
