Olympia is renowned as an unmissable event for private collectors, art industry professionals, dealers, property owners and interior decorators.
Offering a unique and luxurious cultural experience against the elegant backdrop of Olympia National Hall, the fair includes a glamorous Preview Day, late-night openings, a stimulating events programme and a VIP charity night, and is firmly established as a prestigious highlight of London’s summer calendar.
The Olympia International Art & Antiques Fair provides a unique opportunity to buy from the greatest range, with items available from £100 to £1million. As a high quality vetted fair, every item is checked by specialised experts, providing visitors with confidence that what they buy is authentic and has the correct labelling.
Vetting is the process undertaken prior to the opening of the fair when a team of experts from the UK, Europe and the USA checks the items being offered for sale.
The Vetting Regulations and the vetters’ expertise enable the visitor to buy with confidence. The vetting process ensures that the high quality of the fair is uniformly maintained across all disciplines of art and antiques sold at the fair.
The Vetting Committees check each item for authenticity, date and condition. The details given on each item’s label are also checked.
The team comprises of dealers (some exhibiting and some not), museum curators, auction house specialists and restorers split into thirty two committees.
