International Art Business Summit Coming to Adare Manor Limerick

West Limerick woman Rosanne McDonnell is bringing the art world’s most prominent art business minds from the US, UK, Switzerland, and Europe to Adare Manor on 18th June for Art Business Summit, Europe’s Leading Art Business Conference, and Networking Event.

The Countess of Dunraven will officially open the event and speak about the living legacy of art and antiquities.






Delegates at the conference will include Irish art collectors along with tax, law and wealth management professionals who advise clients on how to invest in art.

Rosanne McDonnell explains, “Given the international nature of the market, art as an asset class is increasingly attractive to investors. And although the business of art may appear to be booming, the market can be volatile and is not without risk. Prudent collectors of art need to be equipped with the requisite knowledge to care for their collections and protect their legacy. When one does so, the rewards can be great.”

Art market advisors, lawyers, and critics will travel from New York, London, Paris, and Geneva for Art Business Summit to discuss the key issues in the global art market along with record-breaking sales and their legacy, like the sale of the Amedeo Modigliani recently, and the key considerations collectors and their wealth managers need to make when looking at succession planning, inheritance and managing a collection.

Art Business Summit is Europe’s Leading Art Business and Networking Conference that unites senior art business professionals in law, tax and wealth management with individuals interested in Art & Antiquities who would like to develop their business knowledge on key aspects of the art market at home and abroad.

She is the founder of Art Agency Ireland and works with a network of art professionals, private consultants, collectors and academic scholars in providing research, consultancy and educational services across commercial and legal sectors within the Irish and international art market.
