The 25th anniversary of PAN Amsterdam was a resounding success. Even before reviewing the fair organizers’ official statistics - 51,595 visitors and successful sales across various fields -, my visit to Rai Park on a Friday morning was proof enough that the (same) organizers of TEFAF Maastricht have, once again, done what they do best: organize and manage a most aesthetically inspired and efficiently run art event.
Focused primarily on Dutch art, antiques and decorative design, PAN Amsterdam attracted the most discriminate art buyers who, perhaps, may have stayed clear of the art market, over the past several years, in order to avoid dramatic fluctuations in art prices. PAN organizers, accordingly, created (simultaneously!) the most luxurious and efficient art buying environment. As with TEFAF, the fair’s highly discriminating vetting and design committees ensured a glamorous (pre-Christmas) shopping experience for their predominantly indigenous as well as international buyers. Berliners take note!
