NAPLES, Fla., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- US Antique Shows, a division of GLM and the nation's leading producer of antique and antique jewelry and watch shows for the consumer and trade markets, is expanding its portfolio with the acquisition today of the Miami National Antiques Show & Sale from Dolphin Promotions.
The Miami National Antiques Show features 150 exhibitors annually, presenting a wide range of quality antique furniture, decorative and fine arts. Now in its 36th year, it is one of the longest-running antique shows in south Florida, an international antiques marketplace during the winter season. The next show will be held January 24-26, 2014, at the Miami Airport Convention Center.
Dan Darby, GLM Vice President and US Antique Shows Group Director, said, "The acquisition of the Miami National Antiques Show & Sale further strengthens US Antique Shows' unique position to deliver well-timed and ideally-located shows to support the southeast Florida antiques marketplace."
The acquisition also creates a strategic tie between the Miami National show and US Antique Shows' Original Miami Beach Antique Show.
Andrea Canady, US Antiques Director of Business Development, explained, "Because of the Miami National show's proximity to The Original Miami Beach Antique Show, many dealers and buyers participate in both events. Producing both shows will allow us to develop more distinct and comprehensive selling opportunities for dealers, while broadening the reach for each of these two well-established events."
