CHICAGO – The Palm Beach Show Group is adding a seventh event to its portfolio of fine art, antique and jewelry shows: the inaugural Chicago International Art, Antique & Jewelry Show, set to take place next spring at Navy Pier—April, 24-28.
The Chicago Show will feature the finest and most prominent exhibitors showcasing their impressive collections of fine art, antique and estate jewelry, Asian antiquities, sculpture, textiles, American and European silver, furniture, contemporary art and more.
This prestigious show is set to feature more than 100 of the world’s most acclaimed exhibitors and will make its debut at the internationally celebrated Navy Pier. Located just east of Chicago’s downtown, Navy Pier offers a unique experience of shopping, dining and entertainment that attracts more than 8.6 million visitors annually, making it the Midwest’s No. 1 tourist and leisure destination. Chicago’s Navy Pier is a destination unmatched by any other, making it the idyllic location for a Palm Beach Show Group Event.
Chicago is a major metropolitan city with an affluent consumer and collector. It has recently been recognized as a rising design city, setting the stage for exhibitors to connect with designers and architects, which represent a vast majority of buyers of art and antiques.
“There is a remarkable legacy for trade shows and art fairs that began at Navy Pier,” said Laurette Lutiger, newly appointed managing partner of the Chicago Show. “In recent years, Chicago has established itself as a leading arts and cultural city in the Midwest and represents collectors of every age and level of interest who have been waiting for a show of this caliber to emerge.”
The Chicago International Art, Antique & Jewelry Show will kick off with a private opening night preview party, offering museum patrons, high profile private collectors and elite attendees a first glimpse of the rare treasures available for purchase. Guests will be greeted with complimentary champagne and hors d’oeuvres while being charmed by remarkable collections from all corners of the globe. The show will be open to the public for the remaining four days, Friday, April 25 through Monday, April 28.
“Chicago is an established market and the Chicago collector is one of the best in the world, with a proven track record of purchasing from art, antique and jewelry shows,” said Scott Diament, president and CEO of the nationally expanding Palm Beach Show Group. “Our research has shown that we will also pull collectors from Canada, which is experiencing tremendous growth in high net worth individuals. We know this is a great market for dealers.”
Owned and produced by the Palm Beach Show Group, the inaugural Chicago International Art, Antique & Jewelry Show is designed to meet the needs of galleries, antique seekers, art buyers, interior designers and enthusiasts of all fine things. The Palm Beach Show Group is committed to creating environments to grow dealer and collector relationships through pleasant experiences, networking opportunities and powerful marketing campaigns.
