Art & Antiques for Everyone Fair - dealers welcome new owner Dan Leyland

Dan Leyland, new owner of the venerable Art & Antiques for Everyone, formerly owned by Clarion Events, has been telling ANF about his first 3 weeks on board.

"I’m delighted with the trade’s response to the change of organiser – it’s been extremely positive!

I’ve been visiting major fairs around the country, from Yorkshire to Sussex, and dealers have been so welcoming. They understand that unhindered by some of the restrictions of a large corporate company, we are now able to undertake changes that will allow us to develop the fair with the interests of our customers – the exhibitors – first and foremost."

The next fair is the Summer Art & Antiques for Everyone, 18 - 21 July.

Returning to the fair will be Alison Davey of A.D.Antiques, 20th ceramics specialists. Alison told ANF: "Dan has the ear of the dealers and is sure take on board our needs. It’s vital that this fair succeeds for the good of the whole trade. I look forward to being there in July."

Others returning who are not regulars at the summer event include Melody Antiques, (furniture specialists, Walton House Antiques, Richard Price & Associates (clock specialists), Adrian Phippen Fine Art and Signed & Designed.

Others have already booked larger stands, notably Hickmet Fine Art and Art of Imagination.

Dan added: "I understand that for many it’s the start of the holiday period, but this is a good reason to exhibit. Our customers are rarely the kind of people hindered by fixed holidays. Our fair is sure to generate business at an otherwise quiet time."

Among the changes already introduced and carefully designed to incentivise furniture specialists who need extensive space is the availability of a 5m x 5m furniture stand for £2,750. Further innovations will be announced shortly.
