GL events UK has supported The British Antique Dealers’ Association (BADA) since 1996, supplying the organisation with a premium, bespoke, temporary exhibition space for its annual BADA Antiques and Fine Art Fair, a beautifully stylish, world-renowned, seven-day event held in the Duke of York Square alongside Kings Road, Chelsea.

BADA is the trade association for the fine art, design and antiques community, and its Fair, exclusive to members of the association, is an annual highlight and showcase for the fine art, design and antiques community, offering a prestigious trading platform.

Our 4,800sqm temporary exhibition solution is designed to offer the ambiance of a permanent, multi-purpose gallery; complete with restaurant and coffee bars, washrooms, generous foyer, customer service areas and visitor break-out spaces, and sweeping aisles.

Created within a restricted space and to strict timescales, our event solution comprises a total of six diverse and interlinked temporary structures of the highest specification. Three main structures offer nearly 4,000sqm of exhibition space; while the addition of connected foyer, restaurant, kitchen, amenities and other back-of-house areas ensure the provision of a complete, turnkey temporary exhibition solution.

We finish the front-facing side of the structure with expansive windows, creating a gallery-window aesthetic that allows passers-by to glimpse the interior, which is equipped and finished to a high standard. Finally, a bespoke, graphic shop-front entrance gives the venue a unique and sophisticated, attention-grabbing appearance, one that that characterises the event.
