Antica Namur : a one-stop-shop for beautiful objets d’art in Belgium

From 10 to 18 November 2018, the 42nd edition of Antica Namur will open its doors for Belgium’s most prestigious art and antique trade show.

This event is geared towards enthusiasts of beautiful objets d’art from every era. Since 1977, Antica Namur has been bringing large international brands and upstart antique dealers and art gallery owners together to offer a wide range of rare and specialised items. Over the years, the event has developed a reputation for excellence that has made it a must-see event for every art enthusiast.

This autumn, the trade show’s reputation as the sector’s leading event will be even more well deserved. The exhibitors’ booths will fill a sprawling 10 000 m². This booked-out event will be attended by 130 Belgian and international art galleries. Collectors on the hunt for paintings, stamped or vintage furniture, antique glassware, or exceptional silverware are sure to find what they’re looking for.
