Without any innovations, this is still a top destination fair and in its 43rd year it will host more than 1000 exhibitors from all over the US, the UK, Japan, Brazil, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Mexico and Denmark.

Camilla Dietz Bergeron, from New York, has been exhibiting for the past 12 years and comments: "The Miami Beach Antiques Show is important both for selling and buying." She brings with her a broad collection of signed 19th and 20th century objects of art and jewellery.

Show manager Andrea Canady is confident this will be the strongest staging to date and cites the two new developments.

Firstly, fashion comes to the fore with two fashion shows a day presented by C. Madeleine's of Miami, a vintage designer and couture showroom featuring over 100 years of style. "It will be truly a thrill to see history being worn and lived in while surrounded by the antiques whose lives began in the same periods", said Madeleine Kirsch, owner of C. Madeleine's.

The major new attraction is a show within a show called M3 (Miami Beach, Mid-Century, Modernism) Show which is launched by dmgworld media and showcases specialist dealers in Arts Deco and Nouveau and much from the 1950s and 60s.

Andrea Canady says: "The addition of the M3 show is a natural progression of the Original Miami Beach Antique Show. There has been such a popular demand for this time period from our buyers that we felt we had to give them what they were asking for."

Admission is $15.
