MIAMI (Sept. 11, 2014) – Thousands of antique enthusiasts will once again gather at the Miami Beach Convention Center for 54th Annual Original Miami Beach Antique Show. The event will be hosted by U.S. Antique Shows, the world’s leading producer of indoor antique shows, on Jan. 30-Feb. 3, 2015.
“The Original Miami Beach Antique Show offers a vast selection of exceptional antiques from dealers worldwide and sets the pace in the antique market for the entire year,” says Dan Darby, Emerald Expositions vice president and U.S. Antique Shows general manager. “At the 2015 show, attendees can look forward to an increased presence from European exhibitors due in part to U.S. Antique Shows global partnership with the Italian-based Mercanteinfiera.”
As the world’s largest indoor antique show, The Original Miami Beach Antique Show presents nearly 1,000 recognized dealers from 28 countries for five days only. On the show floor, attendees can explore collections from the Renaissance to Art Deco eras including fine art, American and European silver, antique jewelry, 17th-19th century furniture, porcelain and more. Additionally, the convention center’s Flamingo Ballroom will be filled with elite jewelry dealers showcasing a variety of rare and unique antique, estate and vintage pieces.
To enhance the shopping experience and support education, U.S. Antique Shows will also continue to offer attendees’ unique opportunities to accompany the Miami Beach show such as the Second Annual Jewelry History Series. The jewelry conference will take place before The Original Miami Beach Antique Show on Jan. 28-29 and has a comprehensive schedule including presentations from an array of jewelry experts, a complementary tour of the Bass Museum of Art and a tour of select booths prior to the opening of the show.
