Key exhibitors confirmed to date include: Anthony Fell, Van Kranendonk Duffels (Netherlands), Tanya Baxter Contemporary, Galerie Boccaro (Paris, New York), Gildens Art Gallery, Howard Walwyn Fine Antique Clocks, John Carroll Antiques (Ireland), Galerie Arabesque (Germany), Willow Gallery, Haynes Fine Art, Kate Thurlow, Joanna Booth, Pearse Lukies Antiques Ltd, Charles Plante Fine Arts (USA), Hatchwell Antiques, Omnipod, Craig Carrington, Hansord, Clive Loveless Primal Art and Manuel Castilho Antiguidades (Portugal), Patrick Sandberg, Galerie Fursenberg (France), Woodham-Smith Ltd, Alexander Ancient Art (Netherlands), Serhat Ahmed and Raffaelo Pernici (Italy).

The 2016 edition will introduce the first London version of the critically acclaimed Chicagobased show, The Sculptural Objects Functional Art and Design Fair (SOFA). SOFA is dedicated to three-dimensional art and design. A dedicated pavilion will feature SOFA LONDON at Olympia.

Olympia announced the return of HALI, the showcase of internationally renowned textiles businesses, following on from the success of their participation in the 2015 fair.

Brand new for the 2016 fair is a showcase section welcoming new and emerging galleries and dealers who have been running for seven years or less. This will add a new dimension to the event by giving visitors access to selected up-and-coming talent which wouldn't usually be seen at an international fair of this calibre.

Another impressive feature of this year’s fair is the talks programme. The organisers have partnered with leading museums and institutions to present stimulating and inspiring talks. Those partaking include The Royal Academy of Art, the V&A, The National Gallery, Tate Britain, British Institute of Interior Designers and the Dulwich Picture Gallery.

Art consultant, Vanessa Curry will be giving daily highlights tours of the fair. All talks and tours are complementary to ticket holders.
