When the Haughtons came to New York twenty one years ago and launched this show, they showed every American show promoter how to do it right, says Lita Solis-Cohen of Maine Antiques Digest. As fair organizers and ceramic dealers, Anna and Brian Haughton have been at the top of their profession for nearly 30 years and are widely respected as true pioneers and visionaries in the industry. Although they are well-known for their expertise running highly-successful specialty fairs in New York and London, they are now focused on their general art and antique fairs: the flagship International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show and Art Antiques London which was launched in London, June 10-16, 2010. Held in a purpose-built marquee in Kensington Gardens, beside the Albert Memorial, opposite The Royal Albert Hall, Art Antiques London proved to be a resounding success and will be repeated next year at the same time.
From its inception, The International Fine Art and Antique Dealers Show has been held with the cooperation of The National Antique & Art Dealers Association of America (NAADAA), a powerhouse trade organization, founded in 1954, which is comprised of forty-five elite American art and antique dealers, many representing firms that have been in existence for over 100 years.
