The new event will be held at 10 on the Park in addition to the annual conference in London, part of a wider expansion plan by conference organiser Art Market Minds.
“We’ve been experiencing increasing interest in our London event and felt the next logical step was to move to New York, the biggest art market,” said Louise Hamlin director of Art Market Minds.
Talks featured at the new event will include an analysis of the New York and London markets post-election and post-Brexit and a presentation from Christie’s Marc Sands on how digital sales are transforming the trade as well as sessions on digital innovation and freeports.
Georgina Adam is chair and other speakers include Julian Radcliffe of Art Loss Register and Lisa Schiff of Schiff Fine Art.
Hamlin said that between 160 and 260 are expected for the April conference, less than the 370 in London last September due to size restrictions at the venue.
However, the New York event is a step towards expansion. Though Hamlin could not confirm details, she added that Art Market Minds was looking to “expand its horizons” in 2018.
The next conference takes place on April 4.
