Following the success of last year’s Oxford conference for art and antiques professionals, Jeremy Lamond of Halls and Rupert Toovey of Toovey’s have announced the 2014 event will be held on Friday and Saturday, September 12-13.
The third Oxford Art & Antiques CPD Conference will follow a
similar format to previous years and will be centred at the
Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.
Lectures will make use of the museum's resources and collections
and take place in the Headley Lecture Theatre. The ATG Media
pre-dinner reception and AON Artscope black tie dinner will be held
in the museum's famous Randolph Sculpture Gallery followed by
traditional time at the bar. In addition to the main conference
there are behind-the-scenes sessions at the Ashmolean and a visit
and talk at Kelmscott Manor.
Rupert said: "Jeremy and I are delighted to welcome two sponsors
to this years' conference: Antiques Trade Gazette, who
have been such generous supporters of our profession over so many
years and are our official media pre-dinner drinks sponsor, and our
black tie dinner sponsors AON Artscope who have been leaders in the
field of insurance in our sector over many years.
"Their generosity has helped us to keep costs for delegates down
and made the dinner in this remarkable setting possible."
Jeremy added: "Those attending the conference have said how much
they value the opportunity to spend time with their colleagues from
the profession and so we are providing a sandwich lunch on Friday
at the start of this year's event in addition to the black tie
dinner, traditional time at the bar and the open forum."
The organisers also thanked SOFAA and NAVA for supporting this
An 'early birds' discount of 5% is available to delegates
booking throughout March.
