As TEFAF Maastricht 2024 drew to a close, the consensus from its exhibitors was that the fair had returned to its heyday in its 37th edition.  Over the eight-day fair close to 50,000 visitors flocked to view and buy over 7,000 years of art history, presented by 270 exhibitors from 22 countries.

International private collectors were out in force with sales of works of art destined to join collections around the world.  Also attending in high numbers were TEFAF’s museum connections with 300 museum directors, 650 curators and 40 patron groups scrutinizing the aisles for potential acquisitions.

TEFAF President, Hidde van Seggelen, said: “TEFAF Maastricht 2024 has demonstrated the incredible ability of art to unite communities and art enthusiasts of all ages.  We are humbled by the overwhelming response to this year’s TEFAF and would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors, partners and exhibitors for their continued support.  In particular we thank AXA XL which has been an unwavering supporter of the fair for the past 20 years and we look forward to 2025 with great anticipation.”

As a foundation, TEFAF places great importance on education and this year over 1,000 visitors attended its programming talks. Ten invited emerging museum professionals also gained insights and valuable networking on a five-day Curator Course, created to enable the talent of tomorrow to learn from the international community that comes together annually at TEFAF.
