I believe BADA is better than that.
BADA owed its prestige and respect to dealers’ hard work and keeping up with the latest moves in the fine art and antique market.
With this in mind, is it not time to seek a mandate from the membership of both BADA and LAPADA in order to explore building a stronger and more united future for dealers and our industry?
The most effective way of preserving BADA’s traditions and LAPADA’s innovation would be a single inclusive trade body that brings the very best of BADA and LAPADA together, avoiding duplication and focusing on the needs and ambitions of our industry as we approach an exciting new world market post-pandemic.
Such a decision will take courage, leadership and determination and doubtless in time will earn the respect and support of our trade.
