"The Show attracted a steady stream of distinguished guests, collectors, and art enthusiasts – many familiar faces and friends of the Show. Special sectors, Intersections: China and Artist Dialogues were a highlight for many visitors to this 14th edition."

"We are committed to a quality experience for visitors and exhibitors alike. Our sights are now set on the Fall, where we are the only contemporary art fair in the second half of the year in Hong Kong. By design, this takes place during the important Golden Week national holiday when mainland Chinese come to Hong Kong, also coinciding with the Fall auction season at Sotheby’s, Poly Auction, and others.”
