Artfest International, Inc. was pleased to announce this morning that the company received $370,000 in new purchase orders from this past weekend’s “Sizzling Summer Saturday” art extravaganza at the company’s 52,000 square foot Expo Center in Dallas, Texas. Artfest International’s new South Korean sales office accounted for approximately 46% of those orders and is expected to generate an average of $500,000 of new sales per month.

National and international artists that appeared in person include: Ginger Cook, Lisa and D. Arthur Wilson, Tom Dubois, Julia Polansky, Romanho, and Harry Thompson, among others. Attendees with a passion for fine art were also presented with a chance to attend a business seminar to learn how they can generate additional income by owning their own online fine art gallery.

“We are excited about the success of this past weekend’s ‘Sizzling Summer Saturday’ and the orders that were generated through the event. We believe our new South Korean sales office will play a part in helping ensure the success of future events as well as add to our bottom line, due to the strong direct marketing environment in the region,” commented Edward Vakser, CEO of Artfest International, Inc.
