Mike Thoms, chief executive of The Fine Art Auction Group, welcomed the chance to back the event: “We are delighted to be able to lend our support to such an important event. The dealer community is the essential driving force in the regional auction market, and we value their involvement and support in all of our salerooms around the country. The prosperity of the antiques market as a whole can only be achieved and maintained if all of the partners in the market are able to prosper.”

Mr Thoms continued: “I hope this conference will give everyone involved in the fine art and antiques market a chance to address the problems facing our industry. The Fine Art Auction Group would like to commend the ATG, Olympia Fairs and all of the dealer trade associations for organising and supporting the Art of Dealing conference, and we hope it achieves the turnout it deserves.”

The Fine Art Auction Group is the UK’s largest exclusively regional auctioneer, with salerooms in Donnington, Notting-ham, Bristol, Wells, Godalming, Tunbridge Wells, Marlborough, Eastbourne and Honiton.
