The Event

Entering our 4th year, The Art Business Conference is a one-day conference held in central London, for art market professionals.

If you’re involved in buying, selling or caring for fine art or antiques – whether you are a gallery owner, manager, art advisor, auctioneer, private collector or professional advisor, this conference will explore the key issues affecting the international art market today.

Through presentations, Q&As, panel discussions, and workshops, industry experts will share advice and insights on many of the key factors in running a commercial art or antique business or collection. To view this year’s topics, please visit our Programme page for more information.

The Business Pavilion & Media lounge

The Business Pavilion and Media Lounge are the central meeting points at the conference, bringing busy senior level professionals together for networking opportunities.

Returning this year is the Business Pavilion, while a new feature is the Media Lounge. Here you can meet publishers, have your headshot taken at our pop-up studio sponsored by Invest Hong Kong, and visit the DSL Collection through its virtual-reality exhibition.

Our breakout talks are located downstairs, in a room that will also provide a more discreet networking area, with dedicated seating and tables for meeting fellow delegates.
