Art Palm Springs 2019
Held February 14-18 at the Palm Springs Convention Center, Art Palm Springs 8th Annual Show drew an amazing turnout as artists, collectors, gallerists and art enthusiasts alike were in attendance for an unforgettable experience filled with new discoveries. From the start of the fair’s kick-off night to the very last minutes of closing hours, attendees came out in support of this exclusive event.
We understand that this year held a lot of uncertainty with it also being the inaugural edition of Frieze LA. We were very pleased to see an increase in attendance by 25% given the uneasiness going into to the fair and with the less than desirable weather we experienced. Part of our post show process is to conduct surveys so that we can make improvements to the fair where our attendees and exhibitors feel like changes should be made. We decided to make a focus of our post show surveys if we should move our dates for Art Palm Springs 2020. The results showed that an overwhelming amount of exhibitors and attendees commented that they did not want us to change the dates. Frieze has not announced their dates as of yet; however, we believe there will be an announcement closer to the NYC May fair. When we were planning the 2019 fair we made a decision to hold our dates as those have been our dates for 9 years. We felt that running in conjunction to Modernism Week, Desert X and strengthening our LA ties will help to host a successful fair. We feel that this was proven accurate at this year’s fair and are excited and more confident about what 2020 will bring for Art Palm Springs.
Please save the dates for Art Palm Springs 2020 taking place at the Palm Springs Convention Center February 13 through the 17.
