LAPADA LAUNCHES FREE GUIDE TO TRADING POST-BREXIT
Trade Bodies Unite as No-Deal Brexit Looms


LAPADA, The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers, has launched a free advice guide tailored to the art and antiques markets to help dealers plan and continue to trade within Europe in the event of a no-deal Brexit.  Created with support from BADA, the free downloadable resource will offer the latest advice on importing, exporting and travelling through Europe along with case studies of common scenarios dealers could face. 

LAPADA CEO, Freya Simms: “Our international membership includes over 500 British and European art and antiques dealers.  We recognise the concerns that the current situation affords.  It is imperative for us to advise, guide and support, not only our membership, but all dealers within our trade to ensure that the UK retains its focal position within the international art and antiques world in the event of a no-deal Brexit.”

The guide can be downloaded free by registering at lapada.org/Brexit-readiness
