The National Fine Arts and Antiques Fair organized by Clarion Events scheduled for 16–20 January 2013 at the NEC in Birmingham has been cancelled with immediate effect.
Commenting on the decision, Fair Director Tiffany Pritchard said:
This has been a very difficult decision but due to the insufficient commitment from the trade we believe our reputation for delivering an impressive variety of antiques and fine art would be compromised and ultimately the visitor and exhibitor experience would be adversely affected. It is a great pity and we are particularly sorry for those dealers who had committed to the fair and to the many regular visitors who will miss their early New Year visit to ‘The National’.
Clarion’s hugely popular ‘Antiques for Everyone’ Fairs also based at the NEC are entirely unaffected.
