Susan Mumford, Founder and CEO of AWAD, adds, “The support of art dealers’ enterprises is increasingly vital in a rapidly evolving world. With distinct types of support for members, notably LAPADA’s annual fair and AWAD’s focus on peer-to-peer networking on an international scale, differing needs of dealers are met by the two organisations. We look forward to seeing members’ businesses thrive all the more as a result of tapping into both trade associations.”
