a VELVENOIR wrap up for 2018

[rs_section_title title_style=”with_subtitle” align=”center” title=”GLOBAL TEAM – DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS – EXPERTISE – KNOW-HOW ” subtitle=”TO PROVIDE AN EXEMPLARY SERVICE FOR OUR CLIENTS AT A GLOBAL LEVEL”][rs_special_text font=”google_web_font_Montserrat” tag=”h4″]

2018 – what an amazing year!

With a lot of new developments in our pipeline for 2019, we are closing a year full of new collaborations, experts who joined us, global press coverage for all our events, new clients and new departments to provide a holistic approach moving forward.

We are thrilled to offer a holistic service to commercial clients throughout this year and moving into 2019 – providing support not only in the process of acquiring unique  artworks; but also, through our  in-house agency and partners, with all aspects of PR, marketing and communicating the acquired art to target audiences to generate a return on interest and global press coverage. This year also saw the launch of another successful in-house department; by June this year, our Blue Chip Brokerage inventory held in excess of USD 20m and it is continuing to grow. 
Overall, 2018 has shown that the industries we operate in are ready for a change. We are delighted that our hospitality and corporate contacts are growing increasingly open-minded to the concept of contemporary art from career artists being incorporated within their spaces; feature artworks set an atmosphere that is communicated throughout the entire firm or hotel’s branding and marketing material, as well as creating “instagrammable moments” for guests to share.

For me and my team, there are certainly exciting times ahead together with our clients and partners – and I am very grateful to walk this exciting adventure together![/rs_special_text]
