Our talk at AFE London, Art, Antiques & Interiors Fair was streamed live to Facebook yesterday. Our talk was about how the Antiques world is embracing online, so it was a natural step to stream the talk live to 1000’s of people.
For those of you who missed the talk, here is the video.
You can’t beat the experience that you get when visiting an antiques fair, but in today’s modern world, there are so many more ways for you to experience the antiques sector. Through a mix of interior designers, antique dealers, fairs, markets and now interiors bloggers and other online platforms, there is a whole new way for you to meet, learn and acquire antiques.
To help us discover how this change affects the way in which a younger audience is learning about antiques we have a specialist panel of experts:
