Palm Beach Fairs

Palm Beach in Florida is home to a number of art, antiques and jewellery fairs that take place at different venues around the town that is located approximately 70 miles north of Miami.

Palm Beach repackaged

15 September 2003

International Fine Art Expositions are to repackage its portfolio of Palm Beach art and antiques fairs as the events move to a new venue for 2004. In an effort to distinguish the top-tier fairs from the proliferation of ‘tailgate’ events in southern Florida – and allowing IFAE’s vice-president Lorenzo Rudolf to place his own stamp on the fairs pioneered by David Lester – the three events held this year in a marquee will become two next year at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.
