Applicants invited for TEFAF Showcase 2010

Helvoirt, June 2009 – Younger dealers are again being invited to apply for TEFAF Showcase 2010, one of the sections of TEFAF Maastricht, the world’s most influential art and antiques fair. The next edition of TEFAF will take place from 12-21 March 2010 in the MECC (Maastricht Exhibition and Congress Centre) in the south of the Netherlands.

TEFAF Showcase was started two years ago to give recently established galleries the opportunity to participate in TEFAF (The European Fine Art Fair) on a strictly one-off basis and to gain experience of being part of a major international fine art event. The pre-eminence of TEFAF among international art fairs has led to a long waiting list for potential exhibitors and TEFAF Showcase enables some of those keen to take part to do so for one year. It also introduces visitors to the Fair to some of the most interesting emerging galleries from around the world.
