International Summit: Thursday, March 13, 8:30am-5pm

In recent years, Chinese collectors have looked westward to build their collections, and international players are looking to expand into China, where high-net-worth individuals and collectors have significant purchasing power and a longstanding history of buying art and antiques. The Chinese art market has witnessed rapid growth, resulting in a marketplace that is very different from what it was even 10 years ago.

artnet, the leading online provider for art market information, will partner with China Association of Auctioneers (CAA), to co-organize The Chinese Art Market—Present and Future International Summit in New York City. This one-day symposium will bring cross-cultural perspectives from a variety of industry professionals from the United States and China to address the diverse needs of collectors, emerging trends within the market, and contemporary issues faced by business practitioners in mainland China.

Speakers and Moderators include:

Benjamin Genocchio
Editor in Chief, artnet News

Wang Yannan
President and Director of China Guardian Auctions

Dr. Terry Huang
VP & Head of Asia-Pacific Region,
Motif Art Group

Melissa Chiu
