Dolphin Promotions, Inc. sold its Miami National Antique Show to U.S. Antique Shows, a division of GLM and organizer of the Original Miami Beach Antique Show, in a deal announced on January 27.
The Miami National Antique Show features 150 exhibitors annually. Now in its 36th year, it is one of the longest-running antiques shows in south Florida. The next show will be held January 24-26, 2014, at the Miami Airport Convention Center.
Dan Darby, vice president of GLM and group director of U.S. Antique Shows, said, “The acquisition of the Miami National Antique Show and Sale further strengthens U.S. Antique Shows’ unique position to deliver well-timed and ideally located shows to support the southeast Florida antiques marketplace.”
Andrea Canady, director of business development for U.S. Antique Shows, 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.”
Dolphin Promotions will continue to own and organize its other shows, which include a mix of antiques and 20th-century Modernism shows held in Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, New York, Palm Springs, San Francisco, and West Palm Beach.
