The HighBoy Becomes Premier Sponsor of The Original Miami Beach Antique Show
NAPLES, FL (Dec. 18, 2013) – U.S. Antique Shows, the world’s largest producer of indoor antique shows, announced today that The HighBoy has partnered with The Original Miami Beach Antique Show as a premier sponsor for 2014. The HighBoy is a new, curated online marketplace for antiques, fine art and intriguing objects launching in early 2014.
“We’re thrilled to work with The HighBoy for our upcoming show,” says Dan Darby, GLM vice president and U.S. Antique Shows group show director. “The HighBoy promises to bring a new level of innovation to the antiques marketplace and provide our customers with a fantastic platform to continue selling and buying quality pieces.”
As part of the partnership, The HighBoy will create a collector’s lounge for partnered dealers and invited guests, which will offer catered bites, wine and espresso in an immersive and inspiring space.
“The HighBoy is more than a website or a marketplace, it’s a movement to expand the reach of the entire industry to new audiences. U.S. Antique Shows is a natural partner to help achieve these goals,” explains Founder Douglas Scott.
The HighBoy mission is to inspire antique and art lovers and create a new narrative around the items being offered on the site and the dealers offering those items. To request an invitation to the Lounge or to find out more about TheHighBoy.com, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
