Tefaf Maastricht ran from 10-19 March 2017 in the MECC, Maastricht and welcomed over 71,000 visitors, from over 60 nationalities, demonstrating the wide reaching international appeal of the 275 dealers. In a year of significant development for Tefaf, with the addition of two fairs in New York, the unrivalled heart of the organisation, the 30-year-old fair in Maastricht, continued to provide a dynamic sales platform for its exhibitors. Both private and institutional buyers acquired works, with sales reported across all price points and throughout all sections. Tefaf Maastricht continues to be an important event for museums from around the world, with over 200 visiting.
Patrick van Maris, CEO of Tefaf, said “This year's exhibitors have put on an outstanding display of remarkable objects. To achieve this year on year is not easy: it takes dedication and connoisseurship. Yet again they have excelled themselves and have attracted international collectors from all corners of the globe to Maastricht, it is our job at Tefaf to provide a platform and environment that supports this extraordinary community both today and in the future.”
The next edition of Tefaf Maastricht will take place from 9-18 March 2018 at the MECC, Maastricht. Tefaf New York Spring will take place from 4-8 May 2017 and the second edition of Tefaf New York Fall will take place from 27-31 October 2017, both at the Park Avenue Armory. (fun)
