1st Annual Original Arts Expo (OAX) on January 26-28, 2024


The 1st Annual Original Arts Expo (OAX) is being held in Orlando, Florida on January 26 to 28, 2024 at the newly renovated DoubleTree by Hilton at the Entrance to Universal Studios and will exclusively showcase original comic, illustration, and other narrative art with the aim to immediately establish itself as the premiere visual storytelling art event in the United States.

OAX has been designed from ground up to celebrate the attending artists while also honoring art collectors. A minimum of 60 prominent artists will be in attendance along with well-known art dealers and Art Collectors from around the globe. The show promises to be an intimate and immersive three-day can’t miss party and networking event focused entirely on this art collecting genre. Guests will include Sean Gordon Murphy, Adam Kubert, Mike & Laura Allred, Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, and more to be announced.

OAX will be held every January/February in Orlando, Florida. The date selection was purposeful, as it’s the perfect time of year to come to America’s #1 most visited city and one of the top travel destinations in the world. It’s our expectation that many of the attending artists and collectors will be bringing their families and/or extending their stay to enjoy Disney, Universal, SeaWorld, Cape Canaveral, and the beautiful Florida coastlines and coastal cities.

For the venue itself, the organizers have secured a stunning, natural light filled 20,000 square foot space to conduct the main show that will be additionally supported by a reception desk, a war room for exhibitors, and a large outdoor courtyard for a ticket-only opening reception to be held on the evening of Friday, January 26. Rooms have been secured in the hotel’s North Tower, with the elevators located directly across from the reception desk and main entrance. The hotel has an official affiliation with Universal Studios, whose entrance is located directly across the street. Free shuttles are available to and from Universal Studios’ City Walk, and it’s less than 15 minutes away by foot.

OAX’s main partner for marketing and collector outreach is Comic Art Fans (CAF), the global hub for all things original comic art, as well as CAF’s virtual convention, Comic Art Live (CAL) and the CAL YouTube channel. OAX will be leveraging its core competencies and partnership with CAF to make high-impact newsletter and video announcements over the nine-month period leading up to the show opening.
