Following its success in 2014, the one-day conference for art galleries, auctioneers, art advisors, foundations, collectors and art market professionals returns to discuss key issues affecting the international art market. Through presentations, panel discussions and Q&A sessions, industry experts will share specialist advice and insights relevant to all those engaged in art businesses, including the latest updates in legislation. The conference will be chaired by journalist and author Georgina Adam and is being supported by Bonhams and Maserati.
More than 80 of the UK’s leading galleries, auction houses, art advisors, fine art insurers, shippers, art lawyers, and art market businesses have already registered to attend the event, organised by Art Market Minds, which will take place on Thursday September 3.
Louise Hamlin, Director at Art Market Minds, comments: “Church House is perfectly located in central London so it is an ideal place to have The Business Arts Conference. We have an impressive line-up of confirmed speakers making it a must attend event for art professionals. Not only will attendees be able to gain valuable industry insight, The Business Pavilion acts as a central meeting point providing senior figures with fantastic networking opportunities. The facilities at Church House will allow us to make the second edition of the conference an even bigger success and we look forward to the event in September.”
