LAPADA the Association of Art & Antiques Dealers announces an agreement with the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD) that sees them waive the joining fees for applicants who hold membership to the other.
Rebecca Davies, LAPADA Association CEO, comments: ‘attracting a wider representation of female dealers is something we support. AWAD shares LAPADA’s commitment to offering its members the skills and expertise to trade competitively within the international art market. We look forward to working together and encouraging collaborations between the two groups.’
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.”
