2. Venue Information


The Jacob K. Javits Center

The Javits Center is the #1 convention center in the United States. Named after the legendary and lifelong New Yorker, Senator Jacob Javits, this self-sustaining New York icon has become a wildlife sanctuary, a community partner and a nationwide nexus where the latest ideas in business and pop culture converge under one very green roof. With a significant investment in infrastructure, they are a leader in sustainability, security and technology, setting a new standard for convention centers throughout the country. They employ thousands of experienced event & construction professionals dedicated to coordinating and constructing events with major brands from around the world.


i. Onsite Administrative Services

Administrative and business amenities on the premises include the FedEx Business Center, open on show days and during some move-in and move-out days, offering packing and shipping, printing/copying and last-minute office supplies as well as private work stations available by the hour; and the American Express OPEN® Business Lounge, which offers OPEN Card Members, and onsite Card applicants, free Wi-Fi, refreshments, computer and printer access, loaner device chargers and space for small meetings. The Javits Center has been fitted with a high-density wireless Internet access system. This service includes FREE wireless Internet access with up to 256K of bandwidth and is optimized for light business uses such as simple web browsing and e-mail. Hudson News operates two newsstands on the Crystal Palace and North Concourse levels. The newsstands are open during show days and some move-in and move-out days. There are three Chase ATMs located at the Center. While there is no parking at the Javits Center, there are many lots nearby. 

ii. Onsite Dining Options

In addition to the Fair’s cafe, there are numerous options within the Javits Center. The new Crystal Palace Marketplace offers a variety of made-to-order menus and snacks using local New York products. The Starbucks location closest to the Fair is in the Crystal Palace near West 35th Street and is open during all move-in and move-out periods, as well as during the Fair’s open hours. A Lavazza Coffee Bar is located at the Level 1 Food Court as well.

iii. Security

As part of its recent $460 million renovation, the Javits Center is now equipped with a comprehensive, closed-circuit camera system which is monitored 24-hours a day, 7 days a week and includes state-of-the-art facial recognition software. On the Show Floor, established security protocols will be followed with security personnel stationed at all entry and exit points. As an extra, exhibitors may order a dedicated security camera for their booth.


3. 2019 IFPDA Fine Art Print Fair Review


The 2019 IFPDA Fine Art Print Fair closed to spectacular reviews, strong sales, and higher attendance than ever before with increased outreach via advertising and direct contact with institutions. Over 200 institutions and collector groups were contacted, of which approximately 150 confirmed attendance. We expanded our VIP Program to include private visits to museum collections and exhibitions, as well as tours and talks at New York-based IFPDA Member galleries, which were well-received by our VIP Guests. We welcomed nearly 6,000 VIP Guests to the fair this past year and plan to host other events throughout the year to keep our audience engaged year-round. This year also saw the inclusion of large-scale project spaces and additional Daily Programming, welcoming artists such as Jim Dine, Jeff Koons, and Swoon, curators Nadine Orenstein of The Met and Christophe Cherix of MoMA, printmakers Phil Sanders, Ruth Lingen, and Julia D’Amario, as well as other prominent members of the print community. Many exhibitors reported strong sales on Opening Night and throughout the week, with works by Richard Serra, Sol LeWitt, Kiki Smith, Mary Heilmann, Adam Pendleton, Helen Frankenthaler, and many others going to new homes with collectors and private institutions.

i. Visitor Feedback

When asked how likely they were to recommend the IFPDA Fine Art Print Fair to a friend or colleague, a large majority of visitors responded within the 7-10 out of 10 range (see right). Similarly, the overall rating of the fair was mostly categorized as Very Good or Excellent (see below).


This year, we plan on building upon last year’s success to continuously increase fair attendance, museum outreach, and public and VIP programming. Our outreach will focus on retaining our core audience of print collectors and experts while growing our young collector and “print curious” audience through targeted marketing and cultivation. We will continue to engage with media outlets to raise the organization’s profile and expand coverage of prints.

What did you like about this year’s IFPDA Fine Art Print Fair? 


“As always I really think this is the broadest art show out there with terrific high-quality art from 1500 to the present.”


“Variety of the work displayed and the roominess of the space was excellent. Generally high quality of work. The material was appropriate for my business and clients.”


“Excellent gallery exhibits and thoroughly enjoyed the Jordan Schnitzer Lecture with Jim Dine. The new venue is excellent.”


“It’s the premiere exposition of print-oriented material, anywhere. Congratulations!”
