This year's World SF con, Interaction, has announced the appointment of Kuehne and Nagel as lead partner for shipping and customs activities. They're getting arty too.
Kuehne and Nagel will be responsible for ensuring the safe and timely delivery of dealers merchandise, art displays and other exhibits at the Convention in time for the August 2005 event.
The Kuehne and Nagel service will remove the stress from international exhibitors by providing a full service from point of origin to the floor of the convention. Kuehne and Nagel will coordinate Interaction's global shipping requirement from their Atlanta office in the USA.
Interaction has simultaneously announced details of its Art Show plans. These include full support for Mail-In art from those artists who would like to participate in the Art Show but cannot attend the convention in person. For those coming from North America, Interaction has also arranged for a consolidation service enabling artists to combine their art work into a single international shipment to increase convenience and reduce cost.
The Interaction Dealers' Room and Art Show will be amongst the main focal points of the Convention, covering over 3000 square metres of exhibition space and providing members with the chance to see and buy books, music, memorabilia, paintings, sculpture, and other items.
The Hall will also feature historic and other not-for-sale exhibits including an art display by one of Interaction's Special Guests, artist Alan Lee, who is best known for his Oscar-winning work on the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.
