IACF

IACF stands for International Antiques and Collectors Fairs. The company organises events that take place regularly at locations including in Newark, Shepton Mallet, Ardingly and Alexandra Palace.

The IACF brand was revived in 2009 when exhibition organisers Keith Harris and Robert Thomas acquired the stable of fairs previously owned by DMG.

Items offered at IACF fairs range from art, antiques and furniture to vintage clothing, collectables and architectural salvage.
